The Last Mile

By David Baldacci, Narrated by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy

Amos Decker, aka the memory man has a new job with the FBI. He’s facing a lot of changes in his life. On his way to Quantico to meet with his new team, he turns on the radio and hears the story of convicted murderer, Melvin Mars awaiting execution in Texas for killing his parents. Someone in Alabama has confessed to the crime earing Mars a stay of execution. Seeing similarities with his own life, Amos convinces the team to take the case.

Melvin and Amos share a past on the gridiron, both men’s families were brutally murdered and their lives forever changed, in both cases another suspect came forward to confess to the crime but the confession distorts the truth rather than enlighten it. In Melvin’s situation, the confession could be the difference between life and death, freedom and incarceration.  

What looked like a simple case of a black man being sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit turns into something more intriguing and convoluted. When a member of their team is kidnapped, it rachets up the tension even more.

This is a fantastic series. I love the characters especially Amos Decker.
