Fiction, Mystery/Thriller

Memory Man by David Baldacci

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this author and I wanted to start a new mystery series. So I decided to start with this book. It is the first one to be written and I have no idea when the next one will be out (hopefully soon!) but I’m excited to give it a go!

What would you do if you could never forget anything? When a football accident in college knocks him out, Amos Decker wakes up to discover that he can never forget a single thing. Two decades later, this ability of his comes in handy at his job as a police detective. Until the day he comes home to find his family murdered. As his life spirals out of control and the killer remains elusive, Amos quits the force and does menial private detective work to make ends meet. When his former boss calls him in to work a case, Amos discovers a link between this case and his family’s murder. The killer seems to have a personal vengeance against Decker – and isn’t done ruining his life yet.

I loved this novel. It was fast-paced yet not too hard to follow along. Everything was perfectly connected and I loved all of the characters. Amos was the perfect tragic hero! I cannot wait for the next novel in the series! If you are looking for a great mystery series to start, definitely consider this one!
