"Staying true to its title, Redemption is a riveting thriller, as relentlessly suspenseful as it is blisteringly original. Baldacci may be an old hand at this but his grasp has never been stronger."―Providence Journal
"Little by little he thaws the case out, exposing a town full of secrets that have far-reaching, international ramifications. Redemption's unusual plot will have you wanting to step back and say 'wait a minute.' But then you remember, this is David Baldacci, the master storyteller, and you keep turning the pages."―The Florida Times Union
PRAISE FOR THE MEMORY MAN SERIES:
"Baldacci is a wonderful storyteller, and he incorporates wonderful characters into baffling conspiracies....He takes on small-town America, capturing both good and bad elements. He demonstrates why these small towns are worth saving. It's a theme he has explored before, but it still has potency and relevance."―Associated Press on The Fallen
"A compelling puzzler...Baldacci is a truly gifted storyteller, and this novel is a perfect "fix" for the thriller aficionado."―Associated Press on The Fix

This book takes us into his grappling with the fact that he might have been instrumental in sending a man to prison that is actually innocent, and with the clock racing against them both Decker goes back to either prove he was right or to right a wong.
Through the book there are the usual interactions we have come to know with Decker and some of the other characters. With Sally we get reminders of how he is viewed by others, and even by himself. But we also get the somber moments when he reflects on what he has lost and what really drives him: the search for truth.
Will he be able to show he got it right or will he be allowed to free an innocent man and make sure a killer is brought to justice? That is the road we travel in REDEMPTION, and each chapter prepares you for the surprises that are to come.
I was pretty sure about halfway through that I had figured out the bulk of the mystery, but I was completely wrong. And then about three-quarters of the way through I was certain I had figured out the main reason behind the murders and again, I was wrong, haha. So all of that is to say that there were a lot of twists and turns along the way and I found I just could not put this book down until I got to the end, which featured several surprises.
Really good book and I love it when an author as well known as Baldacci doesn't get complacent after he's made it big. Can't wait for the next book in this series!
The series introduces Amos when he returns home in book one titled, Memory Man, to learn of the murders of his wife and daughter. From there, Amos spirals into a pit of darkness both professionally and in his personal life. What was really gripping in the latest novel was the way the author wove a mystery. Readers get a hint early as to who is the culprit only to learn…well, I won’t say so as not to ruin it for you who haven’t enjoyed it as of yet.
The author has written a very engaging and riveting tale that kept me turning pages for hours. There were intricacies that made the story a surprise in the direction it takes and reveals a deeper plot than what is first apparent to the eye. Amos is changing since his appearance in book one and in many ways, he is also the same. There were a few heart touching-moments as I read parts that revealed Amos’s internal struggles and thoughts. Amos Decker is definitely a deep thinker. His personality quirks are at times frustrating to other characters but also endearing.
I think readers will enjoy watching Amos Decker as he solves crimes, bucks the system and learns to live with loss. The series starts with Memory Man followed by The Last Mile, The Fix, The Fallen and now Redemption. Suspense, mystery, intrigue, and more fill the pages and will keep your nose in the book all the while engaging your mind as you try and solve the puzzle presented in each installment.
I highly recommend starting at the beginning to really appreciate the character as he changes, grows and in some ways remains the Amos from the first book to the fifth. I hope the author plans more exciting adventures for Amos!

Such was the case in the first part of this book and I almost gave up. In fact I left it for some time and returned to it– to find that all of his earlier intrigue and pace was there,and it was indeed a most interesting plot, well executed absorbing and enjoyable - a thoroughly good read.
Long winded. Characters who are two dimensional. I struggled through to the end but it was a painful journey. One is tempted with a glimpse of a character's problem/situation which is then ignored for the rest of the book
Improbable ending as well. I must remember not to buy the next one.
The author has attempted to make a pretty basic investigation into a big story and totally destroyed what could have been a good detective story with ridiculous situations and turning the main character into a farce.
I have no idea why I even finished it to be honest it just got sillier and sillier.
