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.
Excellent! Felt like I was there with them. Loved reading about towns in Florida which I’m very familiar.
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.
A really great read and so believable! It was a definitely a page turner. I have read two of the other John Puller novels and this one was the best!!
