I’ve been a fan of Baldacci ever since his breakout novel, Absolute Power. What a way to start – write a good book, then get it made into a movie produced by and starring Clint Eastwood. Authors can only dream….anyway…I’m not disappointed with the latest effort.
The Last Mile is narrated by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy. Unabridged audiobook approximately twelve hours long, Book 2 in the Amos Decker series.
Another winner by Baldacci, The Last Mile is a sequel to Memory Man, although it is easily read stand-alone. The main character, Amos Decker, is a former police officer, the victim of a heinous crime defined in the previous novel, Memory Man. In ways Amos Decker’s tragedies parallel those of a man on death row in Texas … the subject of The Last Mile.
Lots of twists, tons of guessing to be done, boat-loads of mystery. If you enjoy books that will have you sleuthing away with your own ideas, you’ll have fun with The Last Mile, I did :-).
Narration is okay, a little trouble discerning the difference in female voices – but the transitions between male and female are great.
If you’re a fan of Baldacci, you won’t be disappointed.
