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.


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 tick.

    I love a good story, even more so, if it is artfully told.

    "Hyperthymestic Cop chases Hyperthymestic Villain"

    David Baldacci is a master of the genre and he does it again. He delivers an exciting thriller with an unusual storyline, a real page turner, packed with action and surprising twists and turns. Apart from that, you will learn a lot about acquired savants and hyperthymesia and trust me, he did his research.

    Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy did a decent enough job with narrating the story, but I found the strong lisp of Cassidy a little bit annoying, other listeners might think it is charming.

    Baldacci's main character, Amos Decker, a former policeman and detective, is a broken man. When his wife, daughter and brother were brutally murdered, he could not function anymore. He started to drink, lost his job, house and car and became a homeless vagabond. What makes his life even more difficult is his unusual capability of remembering every detail of his life. He is an acquired savant, who suffers from hyperthymesia after he nearly died in a football accident.

    His life takes an new turn, when a seemingly mentally handicapped person confesses to the murder of his family and at the same time a mass murder attacks the local school. Both crimes seem to be linked and connected to Decker somehow. When the local police and the FBI ask for his help, he decides to hunt the killer down.

    Somehow Baldacci created with Amos Decker an interesting figure, unusual but likeable none the less. I hope to meet him again.
