Book Review-The-Fix

The Fix


David Baldacci

As Amos Decker is making his way to work, he becomes an unintentional witness to a murder/suicide just outside FBI Headquarters.

Even Decker’s total recall of events brings him no closer to working out why a man would simply walk up to a woman kill her and then turn the gun on himself.  There is no known connection between the gunman and his victim. He is a successful businessman, and she was a school teacher.   And no matter how much Decker investigates the murder the connection between the victim and perpetrator remains a mystery as does a motive.

Harper Brown, a Defence Intelligence Agency (D.I.A.) agent, orders Decker to back off the case as the murder is part of an ongoing DIA Investigation.   Decker soon becomes aware the DIA believes solving the murder is a national security issue as critical information may have been leaked to foreign sources and that a terrorist attack may be imminent.

As usual Baldacci’s The Fix (my 20th Baldacci read) moves at a fast pace with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing.
