Publisher's Summary

David Baldacci's remarkable detective Amos Decker - the man who can forget nothing - was first introduced in the sensational New York Times best seller Memory Man. Now Decker returns in a stunning new novel....
The Fix
Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself.
Even with Decker's extraordinary powers of observation and deduction, the killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter - a family man with a successful consulting business - and his victim, a schoolteacher. Nor is there a hint of any possible motive for the attack.
Enter Harper Brown. An agent of the Defense Intelligence Agency, she orders Decker to back off the case. The murder is part of an open DIA investigation, one so classified that Decker and his team aren't cleared for it.
But they learn that the DIA believes solving the murder is now a matter of urgent national security. Critical information may have been leaked to a hostile government - or, worse, an international terrorist group - and an attack may be imminent.
Decker's never been one to follow the rules, especially with the stakes so high. Forced into an uneasy alliance with Agent Brown, Decker remains laser focused on only one goal: solving the case before it's too late.

Did not realize till after I bought this in the sale that it must be abridged. There are two recordings of this book and this one is almost four hours shorter than the other one. I could not finish it anyways. It is just too simple and boring of a story. Serendipity plays a big part in this so called mystery. Stuff just happens out of the blue, that help in the solving of the case. The whole Roomies thing also seemed a little weird. Someone mentioned that a ghost writer wrote this. That might be true although it did have Baldacci signature, most women are tall good looking blondes.

boring mystery

This novel had a slow moving plot, that mostly consisted of the detectives talking to people and getting more information about a puzzling murder that Decker witnessed. There is not a lot of action, and the murder was not especially interesting. Decker was introduced in Memory Man (which I thought was an okay novel). He has a photographic memory but his behavior is sometimes similar to a person on the Autism spectrum. The problem is that Decker is not a very interesting nor believable character. None of the other characters in this are either interesting or believable. I hoped that this would be exciting near the climax, but it didn't. With only 2 hours remaining, I finally gave up on this. I generally like Baldacci novels, but this was his worst, in my opinion.
