When Army Special Agent John Puller finds his aunt dead in Florida, he suspects it's no accident . . . and as local police dismiss the case, the cracks begin to show in a picture-perfect town.
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.
I did not like the first book in this series, boring. This one had great action believable story. Really enjoyed
Awful waste of money
This book was all over the place. It was badly written, stupid characters, and stupid (if you could follow it) plot. The main character was ridiculous, and the other characters were never developed, more like after thoughts. I read the whole book hoping it may get better or make sense, but that never happened. Total waste of my time and money. I have read all of his books, and they were good. Maybe his kid wrote this one. When I buy a book, especially from an author I respect, I do not expect this kind of writing. I will never buy another book written by him again. I actually read his afterward with him thanking his editor etc. they did not do their jobs. I have not read a book this bad in a long time.
The Forgotten. David Baldacci
Paradise Florida. Not really as nice as the name implies. Army Special Agent Puller is there to visit his Aunt who raised him for a long time as a child. Unfortunately when he arrives to visit her she is dead. As the clues begin to mount he knows she was murdered. A crooked cop is the culprit. Non stop action, suspense and intrigue. Another excellent read in this series!! My highest recommendation!! Enjoyed immensely!!
