Tells the story of the forgotten people of the world that become merchandise, and are sold is prostitutes, drug mules and modern day slavery. There are two heroes in the story..JohnPuller, who is in Florida trying to determine if his aunt's death was murder or an accident; and Muga? A huge man from Boliva that escaped from the slavers, and is trying to find his little sister.
Well written, a story that was well told, but not always comfortable to listen to ( because of the issues involved.) ( )

Really enjoyed this story. ( )

Can a book be totally gruesome but a wonderful audio to listen to? Of course! And why not have TWO superheros? This is almost an on-the-ground Superman situation---if the two "big" fellows could only fly we would have everything! Seriously, of course a lot of what happens seems totally impossible but for a story....it's just fine! ( )

I like a lot of Baldacci's books and this one is no exception. I plan at some point to read the first book in the series.

Here Baldacci takes on human trafficking and unbeknownst to John Puller he will be too. John's aunt and surrogate mother has written a letter to his father alluding to strange things happening. John is sent to find out what the problem is, only find she died. He believes she had a little help and he plans to prove it one way or another.

He starts by running foul of the local police almost as soon as he gets into town. Next he runs into to some local thugs who need to be taught a lesson. Things in Paradise appear to be anything but. There is a lot going on and John plans to get to the bottom of it. ( )

A strange, hard to believe tale about human slave trade taking place in the Florida panhandle. Over the top violence, characters (both male and female) that were hard to tell apart and a preposterous storyline. I stuck with it with difficulty. I expected more. ( )

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
