Amos Decker is back in his hometown, visiting the grave of his murdered daughter, feeling guilty for not protecting her or her mother Cassie when it mattered, when he is approached by Meryl Hawkins, a man he helped send to prison for murder claiming his innocence. Hawkins was released from a private prison because he is dying of cancer, but is shot to death in his hotel room before Decker decides to listen to his story. Ignoring his FBI orders to return, Amos starts to investigate whether he and his partner had botched their first big case. Town rivalries aside, as Decker digs in, people are being killed to bury the truth of who actually killed Hawkins' alleged victims and why he had not defended himself at trial. A very twisted tale, for sure. Some of Decker's peculiarities (a phobia for physical contact, hyperthymesia, and synesthesia) are fading; in fact, there is only one reference to synesthesia, which I found disappointing. I was happy that Melvin Mars played a significant supporting role in the story. 3.5 stars. ( )

Redemption, the fifth novel in David Baldacci's Amos Decker series, sees the protagonist returning home for the annual visit of his family's grave in his hometown in Ohio. Decker is approached by a former convict whom he put into prison as one of his first cases on the police force. The former convict, who was released from prison early because he is terminally ill, claims that Decker got it wrong and that the case should be reopened in order to find the real murderer. While Decker is not convinced at first, he starts to reopen the case when the ex-convict is found murdered in his hotel room soon after he talked to Decker. Risking his job with the FBI, Decker decides to stay in Burlington, Ohio, to investigate the case and find out the truth. He soon learns that the story is much bigger than he had assumed years ago when first working the case.

While the setting - ex-con approaches cop and claims his innocence - might not be completely new, this story succeeds to keep you engaged by unraveling an unexpected tale of betrayal, dark machinations and foreign spycraft. The novel is highly readable and a page turner. If you are interested in thrillers and have read the other instalments in the series, make sure to pick up this novel. 4.5 stars. ( )

As usual, Baldacci brings us a story that has lots of twists and turns. This is an Amos Decker novel. Decker returns to his hometown to find that he may have made a mistake 13 years ago and sent an innocent man to prison for life. . When that man, Meryl Hawkins who has been released from prison because he is dying, professes his innocence to Decker, Decker must revisit the case that condemned him in the first place. Meanwhile, Hawkins is murdered and cannot be of any help to the investigation. At the same time, there are people who will kill to stop Decker from finding the truth.
This is a great read. A little slow at the beginning but a page turner thereafter. ( )

Decker returns to his former hometown to visit his wife/daughter's grave and enters the investigation of a longstanding Russian program to recruit and train sleeper agents. Typical cast of Washington FB agents and local cops. More implausible plot and ending than many Baldacci novels. ( )
  fwbl | Jan 21, 2021 |
Is it possible for an author to read so many of their own books so that they end up believing their own fiction? Baldacci usually combines writing that keeps you reading just a little bit more with intense action and stories that are stupid and moronic. When he gets the story right, the books are really good. When he doesn't, the books are not good.

This is one of those book without a believable story, with stereotypes instead of characters in the roles of heroes and villains, and without the amazing feats that would make it a Fantasy book.

Amos Decker has returned to his own town to visit the graves of his family when a man he convicted of murder long ago approaches him and asks him to prove his innocence. Before much else happens in the book, that man is shot dead and the story can begin.
