Memory Man Book Review:

This "impossible to put down" #1 New York Times bestseller introduces Amos Decker, a gifted police detective with a perfect memory who must solve a mystery he wishes he could forget: his family's murder (Washington Post). Amos Decker's life changed forever--twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to play in the NFL. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field forever, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can forget nothing. The second time was at home nearly two decades later. Now a police detective, Decker returned from a stakeout one evening and entered a nightmare--his wife, young daughter, and brother-in-law had been murdered. His family destroyed, their killer's identity as mysterious as the motive behind the crime, and unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker finds his world collapsing around him. He leaves the police force, loses his home, and winds up on the street, taking piecemeal jobs as a private investigator when he can. But over a year later, a man turns himself in to the police and confesses to the murders. At the same time a horrific event nearly brings Burlington to its knees, and Decker is called back in to help with this investigation. Decker also seizes his chance to learn what really happened to his family that night. To uncover the stunning truth, he must use his remarkable gifts and confront the burdens that go along with them. He must endure the memories he would much rather forget. And he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice. Memory Man will stay with you long after the turn of the final page.

Atkins Physical Chemistry Book Review:

This major revision of the world's leading textbook of physical chemistry has maintained its tradition of accessibility but authority and has brought it thoroughly up to date. The new author team has introduced many innovations. There are new or rewritten chapters on the solid state, on molecular interactions, macromolecules, and electron transfer. Almost every chapter has at least one Box showing the relevance of the material to modern chemistry. All the chapters now conclude with a check list which includes definitions and key equations. The authors have paid special attention to the presentation of mathematical derivations and to the physical interpretation of equations. They have also ensured that the text is highly modular, so that it can be used in different sequences, either atoms first or thermodynamics first. The art program has been redrawn and extended, new Discussion questions have been added, and the Further Information sections have been recast to provide the necessary background in mathematics and physics. The text is fully geared to the web, with full media support. SUPPLEMENTS AND SUPPORT MATERIAL: 1. Web site featuring Living Graphs (about 150). Dynamic, interactive graphs that allow experimentation and hands-on learning. Web links to sources of data and other information, as referred to in the book. 2. Student's Solutions Manual containing worked solutions to half the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parenttext. 3. Instructor's Solutions Manual, FREE to adopters of the parent text, containing worked solutions to the other half of the end of chapter exercises and problems in the parent text. Contains a CD-ROM with all the illustrations from the text, for use in presentations. 4. MathCad/Mathematica supplement book with CD-ROM to take all living graphs further. NEW TO THIS EDITION: DT New co-author Julio de Paula, a biophysical chemist, strengthens the text's coverage of biologicalapplications. DT Margin notes provide help with mathematics just where it is needed. DT Boxes added to every chapter to cover biological applications, environmental, materials science and chemical engineering. Each box has two problems, and suggestions for further reading. DT Important equations and definitions added to the 'key concepts' section of every chapter. DT Microprojects used to be separate sections at end of every Part. These (most of them) have been integrated into the appropriate chapter's end-of-chapter exercises. DT More help with the mathematical development of derivations: marginal notes are provided, many derivations now include more steps (justifications), the section on mathematical techniques in Further Information sections has been rewritten, as has the Further Information section on concepts of physics. DT Fully integrated media support. The new feature of Living Graphs are flagged by an icon in the textbook, and marginal notes refer the reader to the weblinks to be found on the book's free web site. DT The chapters are modular so that they may be read in different orders for different courses. Road Maps are provided that suggest different routes through the text for the following types of course organizations: (a) thermodynamics first, (b) atoms first (quantum mechanics first). DT There is a separate section in of end-of-chapter exercises specifically for applications. DT End-of-chapter problems for which solutions are provided in the Student's Solutions Manual are now indicated by colour. MODERNIZATION DT More coverage of modern topics throughout the text. Some examples, by section of the book: PART 1: Illustrations of partial derivatives added Added Boxes, more practical and more biological applications PART 2: Chapter 14 includes computational chemistry Enhancements to quantum mechanics coverage: addition of materials science in Chapters 22 and 23 More modern spectroscopy, more computational chemistry Chapter 21: new chapter on molecular interactions Chapter 22 on macromolecules emphasizes polymers and biological polymers PART 3: Organized to make selective use easier (made more modular) Chapter 29: more modern treatment of electron transfer theory in solutions, biological systems, and solid state For a complete list of changes to the book since the last edition, see the web site at www.oup.com/pchem7

The Fallen Book Review:

Star FBI detective Amos Decker and his colleague Alex Jamison must solve four increasingly bizarre murders in a dying rust belt town--and the closer they come to the truth, the deadlier it gets in this rapid-fire #1 New York Times bestseller. 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. Decker, with his singular talents, may be the only one who can crack this bizarre case. Only this time--when one mistake could cost him everything--Decker finds that his previously infallible memory may not be so trustworthy after all...

The Fix Book Review:

In this "perfect 'fix' for the thriller aficionado" (Associated Press) and #1 New York Times bestseller, maverick FBI detective Amos Decker must forge an uneasy alliance with the Defense Intelligence Agency to prevent an international incident that could spell the end of the United States as we know it. Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution-style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself. Even with Decker's extraordinary powers of observation and deduction, the killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter -- a family man with a successful consulting business -- and his victim, a schoolteacher. Nor is there a hint of any possible motive for the attack. Enter Harper Brown. An agent of the Defense Intelligence Agency, she orders Decker to back off the case. The murder is part of an open DIA investigation, one so classified that Decker and his team aren't cleared for it. But they learn that the DIA believes solving the murder is now a matter of urgent national security. Critical information may have been leaked to a hostile government -- or worse, an international terrorist group -- and an attack may be imminent. Decker's never been one to follow the rules, especially with the stakes so high. Forced into an uneasy alliance with Agent Brown, Decker remains laser focused on only one goal: solving the case before it's too late.

Introducing a remarkable new character from #1 New York Times bestselling writer David Baldacci: Atlee Pine, an FBI agent with special skills assigned to the remote wilds of the southwestern United States who must confront a new threat . . . and an old nightmare. Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe. It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. She never saw Mercy again. Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon-and its rider missing-Pine is called in to investigate. It soon seems clear the lost tourist had something more clandestine than sightseeing in mind. But just as Pine begins to put together clues pointing to a terrifying plot, she's abruptly called off the case. If she disobeys direct orders by continuing to search for the missing man, it will mean the end of her career. But unless Pine keeps working the case and discovers the truth, it could spell the very end of democracy in America as we know it...

He was one of America's most promising football stars until, aged twenty, he was arrested and convicted for the murder of his parents just as he was due to begin a very lucrative contract with the NFL. When Amos Decker, newly appointed special agent with the FBI, hears the news that Melvin was saved in the final seconds before his execution because someone has confessed to the killings, he persuades his boss to allow him to carry out an investigation into the Mars murders. There are facts about the case which don't add up, and as the investigation deepens, Decker and his team uncover layer upon layer of lies and deception which are rooted at a time in American history which most would rather forget, but some seem keen to remember.

A race against time ensues because, when revealed, that information threatens to tear apart the corridors of power at the very highest level. The case proves to be life-changing for both Mars and Decker in ways that neither could ever have imagined. The Last Mile is the second in the Amos Decker series, following Memory Man.
