Summary
This 'impossible to put down' #1 New York Times bestseller introduces Amos Decker, a gifted police detective with a perfect memory who must solve a mystery he wishes he could forget: his family's murder (Washington Post).

Amos Decker's life changed forever--twice.

The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to play in the NFL. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field forever, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can forget nothing.

The second time was at home nearly two decades later. Now a police detective, Decker returned from a stakeout one evening and entered a nightmare--his wife, young daughter, and brother-in-law had been murdered.

His family destroyed, their killer's identity as mysterious as the motive behind the crime, and unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker finds his world collapsing around him. He leaves the police force, loses his home, and winds up on the street, taking piecemeal jobs as a private investigator when he can.

But over a year later, a man turns himself in to the police and confesses to the murders. At the same time a horrific event nearly brings Burlington to its knees, and Decker is called back in to help with this investigation. Decker also seizes his chance to learn what really happened to his family that night. To uncover the stunning truth, he must use his remarkable gifts and confront the burdens that go along with them. He must endure the memories he would much rather forget. And he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Memory Man will stay with you long after the turn of the final page.

Excellent story up to the final connection between Decker and the killer. Seemed contrived.

Entertaining read. Enjoyed the book. Narration had odd, distracting edits.

Excellent story... well written and different from anything I’ve listened to in a while. However, the switch from male to female narrator, and the cut and paste of a second males voice every once in a while for 1-2 lines made it feel choppy at parts.

Reasonable well written, this book relied too heavily on odd and increasingly outlandish character quirks and psychological anomalies. There was a point where it was just eye-rolling. Nonetheless, the plot was not predictable and in that sense kept the reader engaged. All in all, there are better mysteries out there.

Baldacci is a wonderful author and as usual this novel did not disappoint. Highly recommend this book.

I was able to listen to the entire thing. It's like the author was getting paid by the word, even if it was the same words and phrases over and over again. It could be that the more popular authors no longer feel that they need to avail themselves of an editor. As far as I can tell, they are all wrong. So very wrong.

I very much enjoyed this story. The ending made me want more. I didn't care for the male narrator. It sounded like his mouth was very dry and sometimes for some reason his words sounded a bit slurred. Or maybe that was my thoughts and the wine! Lol! I thought the female was very good. Did a good job of distinguishing between characters.

Really liked this one and you probably will too if you're a Baldacci fan. I love that the "hero" is a flawed human being who has experienced more than his share of hard knocks. I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series, and hope for many more.

Good book in typical Baldacci fashion..... A little convoluted and predictable... McClarty and Cassidy are great readers!

I can always count on David Balducci to spin a good yarn. I love the way he turns of phrase and draws a picture with words. I look forward to the next book in the series.

I enjoyed this book. It kept my attention the entire time. It took me just a bit to get used to the female voice for some reason.

Just my kind of story. Adventure, mystery, and science fiction.

Expected more. Very tedious, repetitive prose. Kept listening in hopes that things would get more "meaty". Didn't happen. What a snoozer!
