Memory Man Book Summary


With over 110 million copies of his novels in print, David Baldacci is one of the most widely read storytellers in the world. Now he introduces a startling, original new character: a man with perfect memory who must solve his own family's murder.
MEMORY MAN
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 go pro. 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 for good, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can never forget anything.
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.

    I am a fan of David Baldacci, I read most everything he writes. This book is, was terrible in all facets, in my opinion. The idea of the lead character with his abilities is intriguing, it just did not work in this setting.
  • Awesome Read !

    This was a great read from a great author. Imagine a personal life changing event that leads to murder and mayhem. Imagine that you now have an eidetic memory and see things in color. Imagine you're a cop with all this. Now you have the setting for a great piece of fiction. This book will keep you hooked from beginning to end.
  • One of his Best!

    I've read David Baldacci books since the very beginning and I've never been disappointed in a single one. This is one of his best. All the right elements of good story telling and a plot that moves like the wind.
  • Excrutiatingly Slow

    Started off a little slow but action picked up and couldn't put the book down! Good read
  • One of Baldacci’s Best

    I’m a long-time fan…read nearly every Baldacci book…King and Maxwell are enjoyable characters, depending which book...really love John Puller character, in every book…But Amos Decker is just as likable, if not more so! And Dekker’s reflection style – random clipped thought – is a refreshing character attribute. Loved it!
  • What a BIG Surprize!

    An usually bland opening that in no way will prepare the reader for the intricate maze of "incidents", characters, and unsuspected twists. Each relatively short chapter can be summarized as a logical, yet low keyed, extension of the previous chapter. Action builds to a higher intensity--ending with just the right hook to pull, drive and/or lead you into the next chapter. The majority of the characters have a rough edge that smoothes and becomes family. The main character retains a consistency of skill, knowledge, intuition, and facts that leads the puzzle pieces into place from almost a three dimensional route. These are characters I hope to see/read more of. Please take the time to make the next episode as great as this. Thanks for a great read! Caution...if you have an important task to complete, you may wish to finish that first, for you will find yourself reading this for the pure pleasure.
