“The Fix” by David Baldacci
This is book #3 in the Amos Decker series. To better understand who Amos is and what makes him special….read my review of the first book “Memory Man”.
Amos Decker and Alex Jamison are now living in the Washington D.C. area, working for the FBI under the direction of Agent Bogart. Well, kinda……as Amos is still a Detective and Alex is still a journalist….but, their security clearances are in process, and, soon, they will be official.
One day, Amos is on his way to the, rundown, J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building for a meeting when he witnesses a murder.
Walter Dabney has just put a bullet in the back of Anne Berkshire’s head then, with Amos and an FBI guard telling him to put down his gun, he shoots himself in the head.
Berkshire dies immediately, but, Dabney lingers for a few days until he too dies.
Bogart’s FBI team takes up the case since they have the most valuable eyewitness in Amos…the man who remembers everything….on their team, and what they find is baffling.
Berkshire is a substitute teacher who volunteers at a hospice, while Dabney ran his own consultancy dealing with highly classified information.
Why in the world would Dabney kill Berkshire then himself in front of one of the most secure, if aging, building in the world? And what does J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” have to do with all this?
To find out, you will have to read the book. 🙂
“The Fix” is the third book in the Amos Decker (Memory Man) series and is much better than #2, but, not quite a good as #1. We meet Harper Brown a DIA agent and welcome back old friend Melvin Mars.
