Another great mystery thriller in the John Puller trilogy! Fast paced, high action and an intriguing plot made this one impossible to put down. I'm looking forward to book three! ( )
  Becky_McKenna | Mar 10, 2016 |
Army Special Agent John Puller, a combat veteran, is a CWO who is assigned to the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID)

In this book (#2), he has a new case---- this time, the crime is personal.
His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

As we realize who "The Forgotten" are, in a slowly developing mystery, we see that Puller is basically a lone agent fighting corruption.

The plot does introduce other characters, such as a female one star general who comes aboard as a side kick.

...action, danger and eventual resolution....

3.5 ★

This is the August 2013 selection for my f2f mystery lovers book club ( )

The books fizzles out compared to other great books from David Baldacci.. the storyline wasnt great and as the plot progresses the story is quite predictable. Felt let down by book and the only grace with the book is that it is fast paced (typical of author's style).
You can give this book a pass and you wont miss anything, if there is next book in this series sure there wont be any character carried over from this book. So give it a pass :-) ( )

Present day slave trade provides an ideal background for this John Puller story. As with all of David Baldacci's books...a page turner. ( )

Review for audiobook - 4 stars for the story and 5 stars for the narration. I really enjoyed this audiobook. David Baldacci is a master story teller. Ron McLarty & Orlagh Cassidy are amazing narrators! ( )

Book description
Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case-but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.

What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident . . . and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.
