I read this before I read Zero Day and enjoyed how John Puller operated. His relationship with his father is a difficult one and his aunt is another interesting character in a highly intelligent and enterprising family.

Maybe it was just me, but I had a problem with this story. I usually like David Baldacci's stories, I found that .half way through the book I still couldn't find the plot. As I said, maybe it was just me.

Crime story about an old woman who is murdered and her nephew/ army warrant officer who goes to the Gulf Coast of Florida and then encounters a series of other murders that might be tied to his aunt murder. The local police get involved and questions abound as to their involvement in a series of other crimes in their small town. First time reading Baldacci; alot of military references and tactics. Readable.

A good read, fast paced.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: This is a fast-paced thriller situated in a small town on Florida's Gulf Coast. Innocent people are killed when they stumble onto a human smuggling ring. John Puller, an Army investigator, is drawin in and must team up with surprising partners to solve and resolve this.

It was like reading an Jack Reacher adventure from Lee Child.
It was a good story. I enjoyed it very much but Baldacci could have named his character Jack and it would have fit very well.

can you please hold this book for me until tuesday june 25th as i was out of town
thank you

Need to get this in Kindle format!
The 3M format does not download to the Kindle. So forget it!!

Baldacci continues to surprise me; in that his books are not formulaic and the subjects chosen are current. The horror of human trafficking is constant and growing.

Baldacci is a good story-teller, always. This time, though, his story is compromised in that it's a blatant versioncopy of the Jack Reacher character. That fact haunts the whole book, ruining it for me. Let Reacher be Reacher, and put Puller to rest.

A good read. Good story with very little "filler". Puller, what a guy.
