  • Luffy
    I don't feel inspired to write a review, and for pages in this book, I didn't think that Baldacci was inspired with writing The Fix. Face it Baldacci fans, you're used to reading his books that have 500-ish pages.Like usual, the author pulled the fat out of the fire just when things were getting noticeably boring. I felt despaired. Fortunately things improved just when I had abandoned all hopes of a return to form.The Fix is perhaps the only Bald...

    The Fix is the 3rd book in the Amos Decker series by David Baldacci. Amos Decker and his team are faced with a baffling new case. Walking past the FBI's Hoover Building, Decker witnesses a man shooting a woman dead right in front of the building's entrance before killing himself. Investigations seem to be leading first, there seems to be no connection between the two people but soon Decker, with his memory talents, discovers a plot f...

    This is the third book in the Amos Decker Series. I loved the first two books in this series and when I got this from Overdrive I was so excited. I listened to the audiobook. Ugh!!! Only to be left in utter disappointment. I felt like this was written by another author. It was so different than the first two books. I am a fan of this author and he never disappointed me. If you are a fan of spy and espionage thrillers, I think you will love this o...

    Amos Decker is officially one of my favorite book characters, ever!! The story starts off with a "bang" literally and escalates into scary territory. David Baldacci's writing style is unfathomable!! Fantastic book!!

    If this had been any other author, I never would have bothered finishing this. For me, extremely repetitious and boring. 2 stars is a gift.

    Originally posted on The Book NymphoAmos Decker is walking to the FBI building in Washington DC when he witnesses Walter Dabney, a prominent owner of a government contracting firm, pull out a gun and shoot a woman who was also walking in that vicinity. He then turns the gun on himself. It's clear that Dabney murdered Anne Berkshire, a substitute school teacher, but what's not so clear is the why. Since Decker witnessed the event and the case is h...

    The Fix is the third book in the Amos Decker series. You don't have to read the previous books to enjoy this one. Personally, haven't I read the first book yet (although I'm eyeing right now since it's on my desk waiting to be read).Amos Decker and his team have a new case, a man shoots and kills a woman outside FBI headquarters and then he shoots himself. But why? The man and the woman have no connection to each other and no one can understand w...

    Read this review and more at Following the events of last year’s The Last Mile, newly-hired FBI agent Amos Decker returns for his third outing in David Baldacci’s The Fix.Amos Decker is not your average FBI agent. His size is the first thing that stands out, as Decker–a massive, hulk-like figure–still has the frame and body size that carried him to the NFL, where an injury ended his playing days.The career-ending in...

    This is the third book in David Baldacci's 'Amos Decker' series, but it provides enough background information to be read as a standalone. *****Amos Decker, 6'5" tall and over 300 pounds, was a professional football player until a massive hit ended his career and left him with hyperthymesia and synesthesia. The hyperthymesia gives Decker a permanent detailed memory of everything he's ever seen or experienced - like a combination photo album/video...
  • Beth Stothard
    The first 2 books in this series were inspired and I was totally expecting the 3rd to continue that standard. Unfortunately it was not to be. The writing was pedestrian, the dabney character was tedious and it all felt a bit dreary. Deckers synesthsia was barely mentioned in this book, just a passing reference and too much emphasis was put on his flicking memory frames. I found it dull and unlike the other books which I devoured I struggled to re...
  • Tim
    The second half is much better than the first, likely because of uninteresting and unappealing characters. All in all, a less than average effort from Baldacci. 6 of 10 stars
  • Helga
    3.5I usually don’t like to read espionage or political thrillers, but this one grabbed my attention from the start. But midway through it became a bit boring and there were some unnecessary scenes, which could have been omitted.Amos Decker witnesses a murder-suicide in front of the FBI headquarters and is determined to find out why a seemingly respected family-man would shoot a school teacher, with whom he didn’t have any connection.This was ...
  • Pamela
    3.5 Incredible hook at the beginning, right on the first page! Incredible denouement at the end! The surprising ending was absolutely stunning and, therefore, the bump in stars. However, in the middle it became frustratingly slow and drawn out. I love the Amos Decker character and his thought processes. To fully enjoy and understand this character and series, you need to read the series from the beginning.
  • Tory
    DNFed at 31%. This book is written like CRAP. Show, don't tell! I'll never be reading Baldacci again, if all his books are drivel like this one. Best part: "why is there toilet paper in a house where the plumbing doesn't work? A-HA! There's a hidden key and a flash drive inside the spring gasket. Of course! I knew it!" ARE YOU KIDDING ME.
  • Tina Woodbury
    Rating: 3.5 starsThe Fix by David Baldacci is the third book in the Amos Decker series. For me reading a Baldacci book is like going home – you know what to expect and you never leave disappointed.In this latest installment, like the previous book, Amos is still working for the FBI. On his way to a meeting in the J. Edgar Hoover Building (world headquarters for the FBI) he witnesses a murder/suicide just outside its doors. His former FBI...

    4.5*Seriously loving this series! This is the third installment of the Amos Decker series and it is full of mystery and becomes one amazing spy thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’m going to read the Will Robie series then read the Fallen because I know I will miss Amos Decker and his supporting cast if I read Fallen right now. 😭🤣My quick and simple overall: fast-paced and full of mystery. Loved the spy angle.
  • Matt
    Perhaps a 3.5 star rating on this occasion.David Baldacci surfaces with another Amos Decker fast-paced thriller, keeping readers hooked from its explosive start through to the final, lingering sentences. While walking outside the FBI's Hoover Building, Amos Decker witnesses a woman shot in apparent cold blood before the shooter turns the gun on himself. With the environs in shock, Decker uses his eidetic memory to capture the scene before reporti...
  • Mike
    I understand this is only the third book in the series but i have to admit it’s the most disappointing and poorly written. I lost count with the number of times our hero repeated unanswered questions to himself. It was almost like the author Felt necessary to frequently check in with the reader’s follow along. A disruptive page fillermore so than the prior novels, Decker came off quite arrogant in this storyline. Ive come to expect his Hercul...
  • Terri Wino
    This was definitely not one of my favorite Baldacci books. It starts out with a bang and really grabbed my attention from the beginning. But then about midway through it just started to get boring and tedious for me. It just seemed like there were too many forced plot twists that weren't really all that shocking and didn't add much to the story for me.If you haven't read any of his other books, don't let this one be your gauge -- this is definite...
  • Sabarish waran
    The book was good, story line was brilliant got me hooked from the start but after crossing half the book i felt there was many unwanted stuffs added to the book, the ending was swift and clean. And the twists, the author tried to make plot twist at every chapter but nothing was remarkable. Overall the book could have been shorter.
  • Donna
    This is the 33rd book that I've read by this author. David Baldacci is by far my most read male author. I've enjoyed his books. I can't say, though, that I'm enjoying this particular series. It is probably my least favorite. There were parts of this that felt like 4 stars for me, and other parts that had me rolling my eyes. So I'll settle for 3 stars. What I like the most about his stories in general are the intricate story lines. He can weave a ...

    I am getting sick of saying this but it is what it is. The Fix is yet another excellent Amos Decker story. David Baldacci has been knocking it out of the park with this series and The Fix is no exception. Amos Decker does his Rainman stuff - awesome deductions coupled with being mildly sociopathic. The rest of the team also contribute in their own way. The story has multiple layers (like an onion and Shrek); with every mystery being solved, there...

    Amos Decker Book 3. He is in a coffee shop outside FBI headquarters when he sees a guy shoot a seemingly random woman to death and then kill himself with the same weapon. Amos is working with his usual team although we see very little of anyone but his partner, ex-reporter, Alex Jamison. We do get to see Melvin Mars return along with the introduction of a female NSA spook, who is involved because the killer is a significant military systems contr...

  • Lynda
    about a murder that happened on a crowded sidewalk in of the Hoover Building, and right in front of Amos Decker. The case seems closed to most as a man shot a woman dead then killed himself. Amos thinks more is involved and works to figure out why it happened.
  • Kimba Tichenor
    3.5 stars. Most likely I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read the two previous books in the series, as it took me a bit to catch on to the main character's back story (Amos Decker's wife and two children were murdered in Ohio and he at some point suffered a head injury that left him with a photographic memory and an inability to connect with people very well emotionally. Apparently for some time after his family's murder, he was also h...
