The Last Mile by David Baldacci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this book because it takes the “memory man”, Amos Decker, and uses his skills in the solution of the complicated murder frame-up which has sent former NFL prime prospect, Melvin Mars to prison for twenty years on death Row. As he’s about to walk that last symbolic mile to the “chair”, Mars has a “Texas Reprieve” which is one of those good old boys “Indian Giver” games in which the stay of execution and release from prison with the caveat that even if you are innocent, if you don’t come up with “Who Done It”, you’ll probably be chucked back in prison and executed just because “That’s the way we do things here in Texas.” So all in all, I enjoyed the entire book, finishing it in a couple of days so I could start in on the next one. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! It’s a good follow-up to the Amos Decker #1.
