The Fallen – David Baldacci | A Book Review

The Fallen - David Baldacci

Title: The Fallen

Author: David Baldacci

Genre: Thriller

About the book: It’s the fourth novel in a series that follows Amos Decker who works for the FBI.

I received a copy of the book from Hachette in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I love Baldacci’s works, so I had high expectations. I enjoyed the action-packed beginning where Decker discovers a crime scene.

The title and cover page are great. I haven’t read the other books in the series, but it’s not necessary.

Characters: Amos Decker is a complex character because he develops over the course of the story. Alex Jamison works with Decker, and she’s likeable as well.

The book has many characters, yet Baldacci makes it easy to keep track of everyone’s identity. Also, there’s more than one bad guy.

Quote:

“Sometimes that’s all you need for a major life change: a dream.”

Writing: I’m a fan of the short, suspenseful chapters. Baldacci balances description with dialogue well. He moves the plot along at a good pace without rushing scenes or dragging things out.

The author created a well-written, well-edited book. It’s easy to follow along but still hard to predict everything at the same time. Bonus, there’s no romance.

Final thoughts: I read the ending in one sitting because I didn’t want to put the novel down. A lot happens, and I didn’t see much coming. If you love a good suspenseful thriller, be sure to check The Fallen. I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed.

All in all, the novel is a fun, fascinating read about different issues such as drugs, specifically the opioid crisis in America.
