A new novel by David Baldacci is “Memory Man.” Amos Decker’s life changed forever – twice. As a pro athlete, a violent 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 nearly two decades later – he returned home from a police stakeout to find his family murdered. Unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker begins to see parallels in a current murder and sets out to find answers – and he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice in the end.
