The Last Mile by David Baldacci, 417 pages

This is book #2 in the Amos Decker series by Baldacci.  Amos played professional football for about 30 seconds.  He was injured in his first pro game and that injury left him with a condition, hyperthymesia, which translates into never forgetting anything.

In this outing, the FBI puts Amos and his extraordinary memory to work on a special team working on cold cases.  Amos lobbies the team to take up the case of Melvin Mars, a gifted college football player who ended up on death row instead of playing in the NFL.  Right before Melvin is to be executed someone else confesses to the murders for which he was convicted 20 years ago.

Typical Baldacci fare, which frankly is exactly what I like.  And, I 'd like to throw out a big kiss to David Baldacci for making a library book very important to the story!
