The Last Mile by David Baldacci Book Summary

When a convicted killer is saved by another man's confession, Amos Decker, now an FBI special task force detective, must find the truth in this "utterly absorbing" #1 New York Times bestseller (Associated Press).

Convicted murderer Melvin Mars is counting down the last hours before his execution--for the violent killing of his parents twenty years earlier--when he's granted an unexpected reprieve. Another man has confessed to the crime.

Amos Decker, newly hired on an FBI special task force, takes an interest in Mars's case after discovering the striking similarities to his own life: Both men were talented football players with promising careers cut short by tragedy. Both men's families were brutally murdered. And in both cases, another suspect came forward, years after the killing, to confess to the crime. A suspect who may or may not have been telling the truth.

The confession has the potential to make Melvin Mars--guilty or not--a free man. Who wants Mars out of prison? And why now?

But when a member of Decker's team disappears, it becomes clear that something much larger--and more sinister--than just one convicted criminal's life hangs in the balance. Decker will need all of his extraordinary brainpower to stop an innocent man from being executed.

The Last Mile (David Baldacci) Book Reviews

The Last MileThis book is one that, once started, can't be put down. I highly recommend it to anyone who even remotely likes mysteries, thrillers, or cop shows on tv. David Baldacci did it again! 😍.Score: 5/5

Classic Good Guys VS Bad GuysExcellent sequel to the Memory Man by David Balducci. Good read, non stop action..Score: 4/5

CompleteLove love loved this book! Lots of twists and turns. Little nuances that make you think you have it figured out but no there is another little twist. And of course the relationship between Decker and Melvin. Plus a little football thrown in for good measure..Score: 5/5

Decent read…Good, not great, I liked the first book in this series better, and I have no desire to read the third. Interesting characters, but too long, and too many plot twists that were difficult to follow and connect the dots..Score: 3/5

The Last Mile-OK ReadThe concept was good but it took too many twists to be a great read! Baldacci cannot author an exciting a story as John Sandford..Score: 3/5

Great character with conflictsDecker is a flawed character who is determined to do what is right no matter the consequences. He wants the bad guys to be held accountable no matter how many years have passed. The character of Amos Decker gives the reader a small peek into what it maybe like to have Autism, Asperger’s syndrome or another neurological disorder that has high functioning brain power. I really enjoy following Baldacci’s characters over many years..Score: 5/5

The Last MileGood character development and pace..Score: 4/5

MemoryMan/TheLastMileMemory Man and The Last Mile combined two of my favorite things: football and a murder mystery. What's not to like? The supporting characters are nicely developed and an interesting group but Decker is amazing in every sense of the word. All his wonderful weirdness makes me want more more more of his adventures in dealing with both his ultra unique and fascinating brain function as he solves the case and his struggles to act human in small doses along the way. I will be there when the next in this series shows up and Decker and his team reassemble..Score: 5/5

This will be my last Baldacci bookAbsolutely horrible. Too many hours I'll never get back! Loaded with ridiculous football metaphors and analogies that those of us who actually played football would never use. The story jumps all over and stretches common sense. Why wouldn't the evidence be hidden in a globe? That's always happening! Too many silly leaps such as that to count. I'm giving up on this writer....Score: 1/5

TwistyAt first I thought this book wasn’t anything special. Usually I really like this author so I was surprised by how average it felt. Then the twists kicked it, and I was fairly stunned by the directions it took. This installment didn’t seem like it focused quite a much on Decker’s unique ability/disorder as the first book, but he did amazing work figuring everything out. The Last Mile was a win for me. I’m looking forward to more in this series and more from this author..Score: 4/5

The Last MileAuthor engages the reader in this tale from start to finish made for a good read. Main characters are fleshed out making the reader eager to read "what happens next", even when it's not "plot driven". Enough twists & turns to easily qualify as a "who done it". The " why" had its own surprises. Nothing's perfect, but I'd definitely read next book in Decker series..Score: 4/5

Memory man great....last mile not so great!Memory Man had me captivated all the way through from beginning to end. Last mile was a complete mess and I kept falling asleep waiting for the plot to thicken. It took forever to get decent. I agree with the above about a typical blame game on all southern white males for being racist crap. This story was to far fetched and I am sorry this was not a good read. And I read a lot. Btw, I noticed a couple of dumb typos in the book. Who edited this thing?.Score: 2/5

Great New Series. A Homerun!To be frank, I was very disappointed in Baldacci ripping off Lee Childs Jack Reachers series with his Puller books. Thought he had lost his innovation after the Great Camel Club series. But he has met redemption. The Memory Man books are pure genius. JOB WELL DONE!.Score: 2/5

The Last Mile, one of the best of 2016I read Ben Coes, Jonathan Hart, Daniel Silva, Lee Child and other David Baldacci books (Camel Club series and Will Robie series). This is one of my favorites and top 3 of the 50 books I have read this year. It is a seriously good book with an unusual story line and interesting characters. If I had known how much I would enjoy The Last Mile, I would have read the series in order. I skipped Memory Man, the first book in the series, because the main character was not particularly likable or intriguing in the free sample. The free sample for The Last Mile was not much better. I am glad that I went back and read all of the reviews and decided to make the purchase based on favorable reviews and my experience with other Baldacci books. I don't usually buy books at $14.99 plus tax. It was quite good and worth every penny..Score: 5/5

Amos DeckerGripping from start to finish. The growing number of players is an added bonus to Amos. I hope we see more of Mellow in a future story. The connection was a building point that I want to see more of. Expertly told mystery from a great writer. You latch on to his characters and see them grow ( in the story, as well as on you )..Score: 5/5

Another page turner! Perfect vacation read. Onto book 3!Couldn’t put it down... without giving a spoiler alert, one issue wasn’t addressed nearly as well or as quickly as it should have been, leaving me perplexed for several chapters.
