So predictable it felt contrived and drawn out but it was still a good story.

Amos Decker joins his FBI parnter Alex Jamison on a vacation visit to her sister's family in their new location of Baronville PA.

Observing strange flickering of lights leads to a joint investigation of six murders with the local police and the DEA. The more they dig the more danger and death they uncover. Further concussions have Decker's brain misfiring giving a potential problem for future novels.
Robber Barons owning the town of Baronville and hidden treasure were a bit of a stretch.

The book held my attention throughout. However, the premise is farfetched which made it a bit hard to enjoy. The ending in particular was way beyond the believable. I know this is fiction and it did keep me guessing who were the bad guys and who were the good. But I've read better books from the author.

David Baldacci is at his best when he writes about Amos Decker. Amos and his partner Alex Jamison are back in the "Fallen." This book does not disappoint. Decker an Jamison are vacationing in Baronville at Jamison's sister's place when things start going wrong. Murder after murder take place and the local police and even DEA do not seem to make any headway. Decker with his usual logical thinking makes several discoveries which only seem to put him at risk. The difference in this book is that Decker does not make use of his prodigious memory instead he as portrayed as a sensitive, caring man. Regardless, the murders are solved with some surprising endings and a satisfactory conclusion. I enjoyed the book.

So slow moving. I skipped many pages out of boredom, then wished I'd skipped the book altogether. Didn't even read the last ten pages.

Decker and his comrade go on vacation.... and run into a real spaghetti mess. Could not keep most of the characters straight... probably understandable as nearly everyone in this small town is in some kind of thrall to opioid pill-pushers and related drug scum. All, including Decker, are running around in reaction to the latest outrage, etc. etc. Not much character development, even of Decker himself. I like the Memory Man, but this one I'd much rather forget.

David Baldacci does not disappoint with "The Fallen." I could not put it down.
