I really enjoy the character John Puller who has been featured in two books now. As always Mr. Baldacci entertains the reader with all kinds of twists and turns and surprises. I couldn't put this book down and was sad to see it end. I'm glad that Puller will be featured in future stories. He's a strong character. This is a fast-paced story that will keep you wondering what will happen next and who will win in the end. ( )

I have found a new super-hero, but perhaps I should have read "Zero Day" first as there are so many references to West Virginia and what went on there. John Puller has a number of things in common with Jack Reacher in Lee Child's novels, although Puller is still in the army. He knows how to handle himself and his knowledge of weapons and tactics appears to be extremely thorough which also reflects well on the author's research. Very tautly paced, but with a reasonable amount of narrative involving conversation allowing for the development of the plot. ( )

This is the second book in Baldacci's Reacher-like series featuring John Puller, a military cop. The Forgotten picks up from where Zero Day left off, but it's not necessary to have read that book previously. Whilst the events from that book are referred to occasionally, there are no spoilers given. It's impossible to avoid the comparison to Lee Child's books because the lead character and overall formula are so similar. If you enjoy Child's books, you're pretty sure to like this too. Did I enjoy it? Yes. What is my greatest concern? That someone might have plans for a John Puller movie with Tom Cruise in the lead role. ( )

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! ( )

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....

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
