Remember his name: FBI Agent Amos Decker is back in a thrilling memory man investigation. From the number one bestselling author of The 6:20 Man, David Baldacci.

A town with a secret.

A lone hunter discovers the remains of a woman in North Dakota’s Badlands. She appears to have had a post-mortem performed on her, reminiscent of those only seen on TV shows – but there is no slab, morgue or camera in sight.

A victim without a past.

The FBI decide to investigate Irene Cramer's death, as key questions surface around her mysterious past. Little is known about this school teacher, where she came from or her true identity. But she clearly had something to hide.

A hero with a unique skill.

FBI investigator Amos Decker and his colleague, Alex Jamison, are summoned to seek answers. They travel to the local community of London, North Dakota – a town which sits at the very heart of the fracking industry. Enriched with oil money, jealousy and a deep-set rivalry lie beneath a veneer of glitz and opulence.

Decker soon realizes that the nearby ‘eye in the sky’, the Air Force Station, may hold the vital clues. And that this town holds secrets so explosive, they could destabilize the entire country . .

Walk the Wire by David Baldacci is the sixth book in the Amos Decker series. Continue the investigative thrillers with Long Shadows.
