Summary
"Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes-- obscure bible verses, odd symbols --have the police stumped. Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has only been there a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene. Then the next killing hits sickeningly close to home. And with the lives of people he cares about suddenly hanging in the balance, Decker begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme--with consequences that will reach far beyond Baronville"--Provided by publisher

Summary
Amos Decker, David Baldacci's unique special agent with the gift of a remarkable memory, returns in The Fallen.Poison Town is the name of the place. Well, that's its well-earned nickname that its citizens like to use. Its real name is Barronville, named after its founder, John Barron who built his empire from those twin pillars of moneymaking a century ago: mines and manufacturing. His thirst for wealth is the only reason the town exists, which is the case for many such small towns across the country. Barron is long dead and the town is not that far behind. The mines and manufacturing are gone and all this left is one Barron heir living out a slow, aristocratic pauper's death in an old, crumbling mansion on the hill. The townspeople are dwindling in number and seizing on any scraps they can to survive. Opioid addiction runs rampant. The health of the citizenry is poor. Job skills and prospects are in a sad state. Despair is everywhere, but the people soldier on. There is hope amid all the bad. People still live their lives and they get by in myriad ways. There is cleverness and ingenuity in abundance in the midst of so much misery. In that regard it is like many small towns across America.Enter Amos Decker and Alex Jamison.Why are they traveling to Barronville?
