Baldacci has knocked another one out of the park! Army Special Agent John Puller is back on the job...but this time it is personal. While on R & R he receives a cryptic letter from his aunt in Florida. She is asking for his help saying things are not what they seem in Paradise, FL. When he arrives he finds he's too late. His aunt has passed away...accidentally according to the local police. John suspects otherwise and the excitement begins. I was breathless following him through the back streets of this tourist town where he descends into the depraved underbelly of humanity. This story will keep you guessing until the last chapter. Excellent read!
John Puller shows up again in another of David Baldacci's book. This comes on the heels of the ending of the other book, but you don't need to read the other book to enjoy this one.
As always, things aren't what they seem, people aren't who they say they are. You are always trying to figure things out, how does everything fit, who the true bad guys are.
Love the twists and turns.
