Fun read. It kept my interest. Several plot twists and turns. Worthy addition to the series.

I found this book to be so convoluted that it was hard to keep the characters straight. The plot was so involved that even Decker would be hard pressed to figure it out. I love Baldacci's books but this was a big disappointment after waiting months for its release

This author continues to bring the best characters and plots to his books. Never disappoints. Amos Decker is one of his favorite characters and he just continues to bring him to life. The plot of this story makes you wonder if it could really be true when you look at the state of affairs in our country at this time, it very well could be. Now have to wait for the next addition of the Amos Decker storyline. Good read as usual!!!

I have been utterly WILD about this series since the first book. I've loved Decker - both the parts about him that are "broken" as well as the parts that compensate. Redemption didn't really grab me, however. It got on my nerves when Decker kept hustling across a room or hustling out of a room. (Cue the disco music, lol.) It also started to grate on me a bit when the characters kept roaring at each other. (Cue the lions.) It felt as though Decker was being made to be a little too normal in this book, which was disappointing. I've loved his awkwardness and I hope he doesn't completely lose that. Also, the plot seemed to be rather off in the left field. My last complaint is with a few jarring editorial errors, where I had to stop and figure out what the heck a sentence was supposed to actually read. (Like when the firefighter asked: "Anybody else in there?" and Decker replied, "Not in the office I was in now." Huh?) Maybe I'm being too nitpicky.

On the positive side, I really liked Mars and I hope he shows up in future books! I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
