Walk the Wire

Walk the Wire by David Baldacci Book Summary

Amos Decker -- the FBI consultant with a perfect memory -- returns to solve a gruesome murder in a booming North Dakota oil town in the newest thriller in David Baldacci's #1 New York Times bestselling Memory Man series.

When Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are called to London, North Dakota, they instantly sense that the thriving fracking town is ripe for trouble. The promise of a second gold rush has attracted an onslaught of newcomers all hoping for a windfall, and the community is growing faster than houses can be built. The sudden boom has also brought a slew of problems with it, including drugs, property crimes, prostitution -- and now murder.

Decker and Jamison are ordered to investigate the death of a young woman named Irene Cramer, whose body was expertly autopsied and then dumped in the open -- which is only the beginning of the oddities surrounding the case. As Decker and Jamison dig into Irene's life, they are shocked to discover that the woman who walked the streets by night as a prostitute was a teacher for a local religious sect by day -- a sect operating on land once owned by a mysterious government facility that looms over the entire community.

London is a town replete with ruthless business owners, shady government officials, and religious outsiders, all determined to keep their secrets from coming out. When other murders occur, Decker will need all of his extraordinary memory and detective skills, and the assistance of a surprising ally, to root out a killer and the forces behind Cramer's death. . . before the boom town explodes.

- Awesome story5 star

Good all the way through.....I love this series

- Walk the wire3 star

Thanks for the reviews. Although desperate for a good book, I’ll take a bye on this one.

- Walk the wire3 star

Wasn't my favorite!!!! Everything seemed too elementary and predictable.

- Teams Working Together5 star

Two separate groups , Amos Decker and Will Robbie unexpectedly meet in a mix of murders and international intrigue. One protects the other as they solve two separate connected cases. Good story lines. Got confused at times with all the character names intertwined. If bored at times, keep reading, it all comes out at the end.

- It reads like a draft manuscript for a bad stage play.1 star

Or the draft of a really bad screenplay. The story is so so. What really got to me was the writing. Too many “she glanced sharply at him”, “she gasped”, and much worse in between. I refuse to believe David Baldacci is the actual author of this book. I’ve loved every book in that series up til now. But I don’t think I’ll continue.

- Great5 star

This book kept me wondering until the end!

- Quit writing if this is all that’s left!2 star

An absurd plot made even worse by too many characters, too many murders, too many impossible escapes and numerous implausible scenarios. Total mishmash. A real bore.

- Where did Amos go?2 star

Was really looking forward to another Memory Man book, but he barely used his “superpowers “. Confusing plot, Jamison is a dimwit bulb and Robie and Reel pop in out of nowhere to save their butts. Loved the first memory man book but couldn’t finish this one, sorry to say.

- Disappointed2 star

I really like Decker a lot but this was my least favorite. It didn’t make any sense and three murder story lines that didn’t connect well. There were mistakes like it was rushed to print. Also, Decker didn’t use his “memory” until the end of the book. I like Decker because I don’t like the huge government conspiracy books. Not my favorite

- Good book to read only if you’re housebound.4 star

When I first began to read David Baldacci, starting with "Wish You Well" and subsequent thrillers, I felt I was reading literature. This book strikes me as having been written by a computer or by high school interns. It’s filled with short sentences in series and the increasingly frequent errors in the use of personal pronouns. I look forward to the day when Baldacci himself again assumes authorship.

- Disappointing1 star

I was looking forward to the next novel in the Decker/Jamison series and instead ended up with Will Robie. Not realistic.

- Walk the wire2 star

That was a waste of 15.00$ very disappointed .

- Walk the Wire1 star

Disappointing. Most Balducci novels push the boundaries of reality, but bringing in characters from other novels, with no connection, is just a marketing ploy. I couldn’t even finish the book.

- Walk the Wire2 star

Balducci has been going downhill for a while now. This book is really a mess. Throwing Robie and Reel into the mix made no sense. Write more Robie books if that is the intent. The Amos Decker character was really promising but the last two/three books have been meh. Jamison brings nothing to the table. Balducci’s other new character Atlee Pine so far has been a total fail.

- Walk the Wire3 star

3/5 stars. Enjoyable characters of Decker and Jamison. Disjointed plot that didn’t tie together very well. Hal

- Walk The Wire2 star

Terrible! I rushed thru it to get to the end. The female FBI partner does nothing; she floats in space! I felt like he was trying too hard to put something out. Reads like a ghost writer! Disappointed.


I never got to finish this book. I was almost to the end but I could not get it to come back up. I paid for it so unfair! I don’t know who the killer was. I should get my money back.

- Walk the Wire5 star

Best book I’ve read in a long time! I actually gasped out loud several times. So good.

- Just OK3 star

I didn’t like the theme and the ending was weak

- Walk the Wire1 star

Walk the wire I traditionally love every thing this author publishes. This book is disappointing. The character development is non existent. It is as though the plot should force them forward, but unfortunately, The plot is convoluted and shallow. So follows the characters....Jamison is a flat character that adds no value. Adding Robbie and Jessica just further muddies the waters. Please do better.

- Walk the Wire5 star

Another five star winner for the author, but more importantly for his readers who've waited to continue this saga. Building slowly to a bombastic closure..., I dare you to put it down.

- New memories5 star

Excellent Storey Thought I was going to get lost, but the Storey came around and rapped up fine. Many thumbs up 👍🏿👍👍🏼👍🏽🙏

- Starting to feel a left wing tone3 star

I’ve read most of this authors books this year. This newest book is showing the authors political side. Have it two stars for that. If the book is good I’ll change my rating. Only through chapter 3 now

- Complicated and Convoluted3 star

Looked forward to another Memory Man saga. Disappointed for the first time. Too complicated and convoluted. Too many plot points and characters. Two plots running simultaneously each with people and agendas. Hard to follow. SL 4/28

- Poor ending.3 star

There is not a time limit for on how long it takes to read a book. Yes authors need to worry about how many pages will be in a printed version, but I don’t understand rushing an ending. Such detail throughout the book, then bam here are all of the answers in such short order that makes no sense.( don’t want to give the ending away)Not as good of a book as the other Memory Man series in my opinion.

- Walk the Wire1 star

I’ve read most of the author’s books. I’ve enjoyed them, but this one was way too long...with way too many plot twists...and incredulous [if not silly] events. Better luck next time.

- Walk the wire5 star

This is another great book by this author. The book held my attention and kept me on edge until they end.

- Walk the Wire3 star

I usually love this author’s books, and have greatly enjoyed the Amos Decker and Alex Jamison books. This one seemed too long and convoluted, so I fast forwarded to the end, skipping large parts. Also did not really like adding Will Robie and Jessica to the mix. The dialogue seemed a little off, and the tutorial on fracking was really boring. Just too many characters and too many tangents.
