Publisher's Summary

Memories can be a real killer.
Melvin Mars awaits his fate on death row. He was one of America's most promising football stars until, aged 20 years old, he was arrested and convicted for the murder of his parents - just as he was due to begin a very lucrative contract with the NFL.
When Amos Decker, newly appointed special agent with the FBI, hears the news that Melvin was saved in the final seconds before his execution because someone has confessed to the killings, he persuades his boss to allow him to carry out an investigation into the Mars murders. There are facts about the case which don't add up, and as the investigation deepens, Decker and his team uncover layer upon layer of lies and deception rooted at a time in American history which most would rather forget, but some seem keen to remember.
There is someone out there with a lot to hide and a secret that everyone is looking for. A race against time ensues, because when revealed, that information threatens to tear apart the corridors of power at the very highest level. The case proves to be life-changing for both Mars and Decker in ways that neither could ever have imagined.

Amos Is Amazing

David Baldacci impresses me in a way I had not previously considered in The Last Mile
because the hero, ex-cop, private eye Amos Decker, has unexpected unique qualities.
He's not your typical leading man of detective literature. In fact, he's a big, fat
slob - obese, ill-clothed, socially awkward and totally un-graceful. But not forgetful.
He has a perfect memory, resulting from a sports injury, which makes him smarter than
you think he is. When he thinks, he forgets everything else, like who he's talking to
at the moment. But, he remembers seemingly insignificant facts related to the crime
that help him solve it. If he saw a car back in the day, he can tell you, now, its
license plate number, and that may identify the murderer. It seems that Baldacci had
a eureka moment and is creating some fun by giving Amos such an unpredictable weapon.

Missing the mark

The first book featuring amos decker was great. The voice of amos in this makes him sound like a kid rather than the character that was first created.

Overall, the book is nice. Performances are better than the story!
