The Fallen – David Baldacci

This is a story featuring Amos Decker, the FBI man who has total recall, and sees emotions and events as colors. This particular tale is set in small-town America, namely Baronville, Pennsylvania, where dead bodies are turning up all too often. Along with his FBI partner, Alex Jamison, Decker works at solving matters.

Underpinning the mystery is a current American hot topic which I will not name for fear of spoiling your enjoyment. It’s enough for you to know that whatever criminal enterprise is going on, it seems all too realistic and likely.

Although the storytelling is great, I wasn’t convinced there was much more development of the characters. The backdrop is well done, and the plot revealed in Baldacci’s best style.

Overall, it’s a good read. Not Baldacci’s best, but worth reading.
