I find Baldacci’s series somewhat uneven: the John Puller books are great but less so the Amos Decker “Memory Man” books. In fact, it was an effort for me to finish this latest offering in the Decker series. Baldacci presented a very clever main plot (as one character stated in the book, “Jesus, Decker, this is getting more complicated than an algorithm”), but secondary story lines were distracting. Also, the book could have done with about 10 fewer pages of dialog – given how many suspense books Baldacci has written, I expected tighter dialog. I recommend reading this only if you have read the earlier Amos Decker books and want to follow the series.
