“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....

Own. John Puller, military, goes to Paradise, FL, to check on his elderly aunt and becomes involved in murder cases. This hero didn't attract me as much as Robie, but it's still a nonstop thriller. ( )

A new author for me. John Puller is like another Jack Reacher. Great reading and great action. John solves the murder of his aunt and the lucrative business of slave trading in the town of Paradise. ( )

Really enjoyed this book on audio (narrator has a great voice)! One of the best of Baldacci's I've read. Army special agent John Puller has a new case which sends him to Paradise, Florida, and when he arrives finds his aunt has been found dead which was no accident. Within this small town there is more than sandy beaches but each day he uncovers more,--a conspiracy involving some trusting players in the town. I missed the Puller #1 in the series so look forward to reading. ( )

This book picks up just a month later in the life of John Puller after the first in the series. He arrives back in Virginia after vacation to discover that his father is upset over the contents of a letter from his sister, Betsy, who was the surrogate mother to John and his brother Robert. She gives no details, but indicates that things in Paradise, Florida, are not what they seem or should be, and that she needs John to come down to help her figure out the mystery. When John arrives he discovers that Betsy has died and though he thinks it may have been murder, the ME disagrees. This book was very interesting and a true page turner. However, as with the last, the ending of the book stretched believability, but that's going to happen in a thriller or it wouldn't be a thriller. I still found Puller a fascinating character and look forward to reading more of his adventures. ( )

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.
Haiku summary
