About the same time, a team was being assembled by the FBI to solve a different murder. When the head of the team contacted Amos Decker, a private eye, Decker thought about it for awhile for several reasons. After his family had been slaughtered a year or so ago, Decker had little energy or desire to do much at all; he'd put on a massive amount of weight so that it was a
struggle to walk far, had no real friends, nor was he interested in going out. However, the case piqued his curiosity and he assumed he could help. Due to a head concussion and happenstance, Decker's brain became wired such that he has perfect recall of everything he hears and sees (called hyperthymesia - a term meaning "excessive remembering" from the ancient Greeks. He also has has great difficulty turning off his thoughts.
Almost everything in this book from beginning to end drew me in - the many, many up's and down's as the team tried to solve their assigned case as well as an additional one that Decker wanted to work on with or without some of them, trying to find out who the killer was in the Mars case.
