FBI consultant Amos Decker discovers that he may have made a fatal mistake when he was a rookie homicide detective in Redemption. Back in his home town, he’s now compelled to discover the truth in the latest memory man thriller in David Baldacci’s international number one bestselling series.
Decker has returned to Burlington, Ohio, for a special reason. It would have been his daughter Molly’s fourteenth birthday. Molly was brutally murdered four years ago in their home, along with his beloved wife, Cassie, and his brother-in-law.
But then Decker is tracked down by a man he’ll never forget: Meryl Hawkins, his first homicide arrest more than twelve years ago. Hawkins has been in prison serving a life sentence but was recently released due to a terminal illness.
Decker now finds himself questioning what had seemed watertight evidence at the time – maybe he’d been a bit too keen to get that conviction? Could Hawkins really be innocent, as he’s always claimed?
If so, the killer is still out there – with a possible connection to a new crime. As the body count rises, and Decker and his former partner Mary Lancaster dig deeper, it looks as though there’s a lot more to what they thought was a closed case.
