Siste skanse er andre bok i den kritikerroste og populære serien om Amos Decker. Melvin Mars venter på sin skjebne på dødscella. Han var en av Amerikas mest lovende fotballspillere, helt til han - bare tjue år gammel - ble arrestert og dømt for å ha drept begge foreldrene sine. Da Amos Decker, nylig utnevnt FBI-agent, får høre at Melvin unnslapp døden i siste øyeblikk fordi noen tilsto drapene, klarer han å overtale sjefen sin til å starte en ny etterforskning. Noen høyt oppe i systemet har mye å tape på at sannheten kommer frem. Sannheten forandrer ikke bare skjebnen til Melvin Mars, Amos Deckers liv blir aldri det samme igjen.

That doesn’t happen by luck, accident, or chance–he’s one of the most famous and bestselling novelists alive today for a reason. He has a ton of talent, with little to no weaknesses in his writing. Solid from top to bottom, with a near-perfect understanding of how to tell a story, Baldacci is a blistering force in the world of thrillers.

Baldacci has mastered the art of creating a page-turner for his fans. He draws his readers deep into his story by creating scenes that leave the reader suspended at the end of the chapter, unable to put the book down.
Baldacci excels at developing interesting, three-dimensional protagonists, and he has given Decker an interesting personal situation—he has two characteristics that separate him from everyone else: hyperthymesia, an autobiographical memory, and synesthesia, a neurological condition of sensory pathways. He uses these two involuntary characteristics to help him resolve this case.
Baldacci fans will not be disappointed, and The Last Mile gives good reason to look forward to the next Amos Decker thriller.
