Description

Product Description

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 in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

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.

Brutal subject matter; the trafficking of humans into America to be used as slave labor in various parts of the country. The story takes place on the panhandle of Florida, where the avenue for transporting the slave labor begins on American soil. They come from all over the world, the slaves, and they are shipped to abandoned oil platforms off of the coast of Florida, and from there, they are shuttled in small boats onto a desolate part of the Florida coast. It is awful. These people become prostitutes, cheap agricultural labor, and household help. There is much money being made at lots of levels in order to keep this network moving. Enter John Puller, checking on a mysterious letter that his aunt wrote about things not right in her little town in Florida. Before Puller gets there, his aunt is killed. The police determine it was an accident, but Puller thinks otherwise. He becomes a one man vigilante squad trying to find out what really happened to his aunt, and indeed, he intercepts the network of human trafficking. The perpetrators of these crimes against humanity are monsters and will stop at nothing to deter the interruption of this market. Puller runs across a woman who turns out to be an undercover cop from Colombia where many of the victims come from. He also teams up with an enormous man from Bulgaria who has a desire to interrupt this market. A fascinating, ugly story is told, many people are killed, and people aren’t who they say they are. A good read, disgusting subject.

I love John Puller. But this novel is poor. It is as if the author David Baldacci is trying to set up Puller as a fall guy before his audience. Baldacci has a hit average of .100, or about one good book per ten. His problem is that after the initial 50 pages of introducing a decent plot revolving around interesting characters, the book always deteriorates. The reason is that at that point he introduces more characters so that the middle and end of the books become tedious dialogues. I haven''t been able to put down the last four of his novels for the first fifty pages, nor have I been able to read them beyond that point.

This, as opposed to the masters of the genre: JP MacDonald, Lee Childs, and Lawrence Block. I salute you, John Puller, but you''re working for the wrong guy.

This book has taught me to avoid mass-producer novelists like Baldacci, who has penned over 30 books by now. I enjoyed some of this other stuff, like Camel Club, but this one is garbage. The numerous 5-star reviews just go to show how easily impressed most people are today, and I can assure you that intelligent and discerning readers aren''t among those reviewers.

This is a hack job, full of childish writing and plot turns. Worst of all is this annoying profusion of 5- or 6 word sentences, seemingly thousands of them, which the author apparently thinks makes him cute or something. It doesn''t. Doesn''t make him cute. Sentences very short. Really annoying. Very boring. Should stop. Want a book full of this????

It’s hard to believe that human trafficking happens in the United States, but this book testified that it is Alive and well in this Florida town ironically called Paradise.

Baldacci weaves a tale here about the character he invented in the previous book Zero Day . John Puller’s elderly aunt has mysteriously died. And when he gets to Paradise, other seniors drop like flies. This book is riveting. It’s hard to put it down.

Like other Baldacci books, previous characters make an appearance; and often minor characters in one book become major characters in succeeding books. In this book it is a one star female general named Carson. Therefore, for complete satisfaction, it is best to read Baldacci’s character books in order.

I’m in book 3 now of Puller’s capers about his brother who escapes from prison: The Escape. I forgot to mention that his brother and father are in all 3 books. What a delight for readers that like sagas!

I am new to David Baldacci''s fan club. I''ve read all of John McDonald''s Travis McGee and other books, John Sanford''s "Prey" series, James Patterson''s Alex Cross books, Tony Hillerman, Navada Barr, Sue Grafton; and, JA Jance''s Johanna Brady and JP Beaumont books, etc., and was given Baldacci''s The Forgotten.

Wow, from the first page I was hooked and couldn''t put it down. Quite a thrill ride, with enough surprises, complexities, character development and overall fulfillment of giving a great story that I can''t believe I hadn''t picked up on this really good author. Before I even finished The Forgotten, I loaded my Kindle up with most of Baldacci''s books in the John Puller series, and the first of two other primary characters. But, I had to begin with Zero Day, the first John Puller character book, which I also finished nearly non-stop, page turning. The Forgotten had several references to a previous assignment or previous work experience in West Virginia, that I had to read Zero Day. Just as good, just as fast, development of numerous characters and enough mystery that it kept me working hard to try and figure out what was the primary issue driving the all the intrigue. I like the current mystery writers that give the reader lots of clues to "help" us solve the crime, but keep us working to near the end. Unlike Sherlock Holmes, that without your brilliant, over-the-top, genius knowledge of chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics, medicine, etc., you don''t have a chance to solve the crime until Sherlock drops the bomb in you lap.

Baldacci''s success had eluded me and what a pleasant surprise that I have found several new worlds that he has created to explore. Thank you, David Baldacci.

I’ve read Baldacci in the past a couple of times. Those experiences sold me on buying this book.

This is one of those formulaic shoot-em up books that get churned out for Hollywood every day. Army Hero saves Gulf Coast Floridian town from stereotypical slavers. Army Hero gets the girl. Army Hero gets offers from two more, but doesn’t because he’s just a one-woman kind of guy. Army Hero has his own tough dude Tonto, but he’s Bulgarian instead of American Indian. Army Hero saves kids, and kills or captures all the bad guys but one. Had to have one antagonist left, right? Otherwise Baldacci would have had to invent another, right?. Too much labor!

The book had so many problems I can’t begin to list them all. I can’t believe I finished it! It was so dumb, I don’t know that I can ever read another of Baldacci’s books. 🤣🤣🤣

David Baldacci always leaves you wanting MORE! His “novels” are very informative and topical. Our borders are not secure but after reading this, I believe we should be focused on all the areas of our country that are vulnerable. There are those that are attempting to erase history, The Cancel Culture. They are so concerned about nonsense that they cannot see the forest for the trees. Hopefully we still have a few good men and women willing to fight the darkness that the forest casts and the sun will shine. To all the John Pullers, Julie Carsons, Mechos and Agent Diaz’s out there, know there are those of us here who will gladly watch your 6! Thank you David Baldacci for a great read.

David Baldacci is one of my favorite authors in this genre. In retrospect, I am astonished to see his name on the cover of The Forgotten: the book is so incredibly BAD in every respect, could it have been written by his pet canary, perhaps?
Starting with the writing style. It is extremely truncated, stuttering and graceless, devoid of any rhythm or flow; it could be issuing from the jammed rifle in the plot. The language impersonates military lingo, but the US Army couldn''t possibly be what it is, had its members spoken in this ridiculous manner.
And the plot. Ah, the plot! It is a no-show. There is no plot! The book consists mainly of a (MUCH too long) series of disjointed vignettes, populated by characters so one-dimensional and lacking credibility as to be laughable but for one thing: they''re not funny.
In fairness to the author, I will not add any more criticism since I was unable to read the entire oeuvre. Having suffered through the first half, I skimmed through the balance in my anxiety to be liberated from this purgatory.

The second outing for John Puller comes hot on the heels of the action of Zero Day. Puller is on leave, but when his ailing father gets a letter from his Aunt, someone he spent a lot of time with as a child, Puller agrees to go see her in the Florida town of Paradise. The investigator in Puller takes over when he discovers his aunt has died. The local police are sure it is an accident, but Puller is not. He is soon bumping heads with local law enforcement, and gradually gets pulled into a sick organised crime scheme. In parallel a mysterious man, someone Puller recognises as possessing skills like his own, keeps crossing his path. It is not long before Puller realises Paradise fails to live up to his name, and as ever his training and personality mean he refuses to let things lie. Not a bad read - best for a beach or a plane. We learn a bit more about Puller, the author tries to make him a bit softer around the edges and he does his superhuman things as he did in book one. It is probably a bit much to expect much more and the series will I am sure follow the same sort of well-trodden path all such series follow. I am rather further through the John Milton series by Mark Dawson which in my opinion offers a slightly more rounded main protagonist - not quite such a perfect superhuman machine. That is just preference perhaps. I have picked up the other two in the series as part of an Amazon offer, and I am sure they will offer similar escapist entertainment.

Quick-paced page turner, full of action and detail, this story mixes heroes, antiheroes and villains very effectively. The murky world of people trafficking is described in all its brutality as an Army Crime investigator receives a cryptic letter from an elderly aunt, hinting that all is not well in Paradise, Florida. When his aunt, and three of her friends die in suspicious circumstances,John Puller uncovers a monstrous operation going on under the noses of the local Police Force. Are they in league with the criminals? Not everything is what it seems. And what is the Eastern European giant''s connection with the people smugglers? Top thriller.

Having read others by this author and featuring Puller I knew that this would be a good story, well-written. I was not disappointed. We learn a little more of Puller''s background when a letter written by his aunt arrives with his ailing father, her brother. As Puller goes to visit his aunt, only to discover that she has died, he is drawn into the underbelly of Paradise. This seemingly perfect little town, ideal for retired folk, is enmeshed in international crime and Aunt Betsy stumbled onto "people not being what they seem". Puller is gradually drawn further into an investigation that causes him to enlist the help of General Julie Carson. There are references to their previous involvement and his last deployment, but if you haven''t read that story it does not detract from this one. Puller is the consummate professional as a soldier and investigator, but during this story the reader becomes more aware of the emotions of a man who has,for various reasons, had to keep a tight rein on his feelings. Some of the plot developments might require a slight willingness to suspend disbelief, but when one considers the current criminal activities across borders that are reported on news programmes, this plot is not such a great leap of belief.

A good story, well written, but I felt it didn''t have the impact of the first book. The supposed hero guessed who plotted what, and how, but this was quickly bypassed without the reader having the opportunity to become involved. I didn''t have one of those moments of author admiration when the twists of the plot was under my nose, it was more 1+1=2, I felt that an extra 50 pages would of addressed the strands of the plot. But, a good read, some revisits back to the previous book, but just overview, nothing boring or mundane. I''d purchased the next book.
