The Last Mile Book Summary


Amos Decker - the extraordinary detective who can forget nothing - returns in a spectacular thriller that is "utterly absorbing." -- 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.

    How can I review it before I read it?
  • The Last Mile (LaDog54)

    Very intriguing, but then all David Baldacci books are. Great read!!!
  • The Last Mile (jebbielou)

    Good as Book 1 in this series. Can't wait to read The Fix.
  • The Last Mile (ashthomas19)

    This 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! 😍
  • Wow!!!! (Jamiewakka)

    This Amos Decker series just keeps getting better and better. I now have a new favorite author!!!!!!
  • The last mile (peleke11)

    The best writing from one the best writers!
  • Memory man great....last mile not so great! (Richgol)

    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?
  • Outstanding (ReporterOMA)

    Literally could not put it down. Dead serious. Stayed up until the wee hours of the morning the other day because I was that hooked. So, so good. Well done, David.
  • This will be my last Baldacci book (Tim From Aitkin)

    Absolutely 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...
  • Great! (Connelly fan)

    Super fast read - finished in a weekend. Great escape. A page turner. Surprising twists but not so much that you can't catch the clues.
