Publisher's Summary

Amos Decker, David Baldacci's unique special agent, who suffered a head injury that resulted in giving him the gift of a remarkable memory together with a condition called synaesthesia, takes on another case in The Fix.
Walter Dabney is a family man. A loving husband and the father of four grown daughters, he's built a life many would be proud of.
But then the unthinkable happens.
Standing outside the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, Dabney shoots schoolteacher Anne Berkshire in cold blood before turning the gun on himself. One of the many witnesses is Amos Decker, a man who forgets nothing and sees what most miss. Baffled by what appears to be a seemingly senseless and random killing, Decker is thrust into the investigation to determine what drove this family man to pull the trigger.
As part of an FBI special task force, Decker and the team delve into the lives of Dabney and Berkshire to find a connection that doesn't seem to exist. What they do find are secrets that stretch back a lifetime and reveal a current plot of impending destruction that will send the world reeling, placing Decker and his team squarely in the crosshairs.

Most Helpful

David Baldacci produces an intriguing thriller.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would very much recommend this book and in fact the whole Amos Decker series to anyone who enjoys a complex, well-written thriller with unexpected twists and turns in the plot and interesting characters.

What other book might you compare The Fix to, and why?

I think this book is like some of the Robert Crais novels with a central character who is both flawed but very likeable. It has the same well thought out plots and good descriptions of both people and places.

Which character – as performed by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favourite?

I thought all the performances were excellent but particularly liked the portrayal of Harper Brown and Melvin Mars. Between the sharp descriptive text and the voice portraits drawn by the narrators, I could clearly see and hear these characters speak and interact in my mind.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I both laughed and cried at different parts of this book. The scenes with Joey at the Hospice are very touching and sad. The jealousy of Alex Jamison is quite amusing and Decker's reaction to it. Overall I kept listening and promising myself that I would turn the book off after the next chapter, but I was hooked and stayed up much too late listening to 'just one more chapter'.

Any additional comments?

It has been a real pleasure to see how Decker and those around him have changed and developed over this series. The plots are intriguing and entertaining. As with every different series by this particular author I am never disappointed. I am eagerly awaiting the next book chronicling Amos's journey.

The best story yet

I loved this from the get go. In his usual way, DB keeps you guessing about any new characters as the story winds it's way through many twists and turns and I must say that the main surprise was exactly that when it came.
As always the narrator's were excellent and add to the intrigue.
Thoroughly enjoyed and recommended.
