I am definitely a Baldacci series follower but this one? Serious misstep. Kind of muzzled my enthusiasm for the Decker/Jamison dynamic duo. Neither were interesting to me this go round ... more meandering and even a bit whiny. Maybe I…Read moreRead more of this comment

Super addition to the Amos Decker series. I haven't read the Wil Robie series but clearly I've been missing out on a good one and will be starting on it soon.
Amos seems to be losing some of his edge -- his "psychic" ability seems to…Read moreRead more of this comment

Mixed bag. I like that the Memory Man is a developing character who grows and changes through the series. But, as mentioned by other reviewers, it also takes a bit away from the uniqueness of who he is. Also as mentioned, this plot…Read moreRead more of this comment

Although the first part of the book seemed a slower pace than most Baldacci works, I loved how Baldacci brought two of his series together with Will Robbie's appearance, followed by Jessica and Blue Man. I enjoyed it and am now waiting on…Read moreRead more of this comment

I had just read "Yellow Earth" by John Sayles when I picked up this novel. Both are about the fracking industry in North Dakota, the booms and busts that make a maelstrom of individual lives. Of the two, I prefer Sayles' novel, and by a…Read moreRead more of this comment
I have read all of Baldacci's books and loved most...This one is a far cry from any of his previous books. Is he asleep at the wheel or is someone else writing for him now, i.e., like Patterson.

I too was excited to see Will and Jessica and Blue Man, but this is almost two books in one. A LOT of killings, multiple plots and perpetrators.
I had to re-read the ending just to sort out who did what.
Think this book got…Read moreRead more of this comment

A bit slow and convoluted. It drags on , through the middle part. Too many unnecessary characters and plot twists which seem to be there only as filler. Jamison seems a bit weak. Definitely not one of Baldacci's best. Three stars…Read moreRead more of this comment

I was excited to read the newest Amos Decker and Alex Jamison book, 'Walk the Wire'. Then, Baldacci added Robie, Reel and Blue Man to what appeared to be an interesting case made more interesting by their appearance!
But, Decker himself…Read moreRead more of this comment

I used to absolutely LOVE Mr. Baldacci's books. Sadly, not so much anymore. Walk the Wire is probably the most convoluted, implausible story I have read in a long time. There were so many inane plots that my eyes hurt from rolling them so…Read moreRead more of this comment

My first thought: What does the title "Walk the Wire" have to do with this book? This was a typical Baldacci - a moderate length book but a really fast read. The main character, Amos Decker - a guy who had a football injury and now has…Read moreRead more of this comment

WALK THE WIRE by David Baldacci is an awesome read. The Memory Man (Amos Decker) is back along with his FBI partner Alex Jamison. But Amos is again having some brain changes - for example, he is suddenly able to be somewhat more…Read moreRead more of this comment

Baldacci never disappoints. Really like the development and changes in Amos. He is learning to live again and to see their is hope for the future. Can't wait to see how this continues - hoping that he will find love again.

I haven't read an Amos Decker book in a while so I was looking forward to it. Baldacci did not disappoint. What I liked about this book is that Decker and Jamison got into trouble frequently but they had a surprising ally who "had their…Read moreRead more of this comment
