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.

The Forgotten5By Wolfhead9Ok Im hooked on Puller & cant wait to start The Escape!
Eye Opening5By Mac-ChickWow, I had no idea that human trafficking was this bad and it was a real eye opener. I found it rather frightening in some aspects such as the power the wealthy can afford to buy themselves. Very clever in many respects. My first John Puller read and I really did like the main character and his loyalty. Love the trail of clues. I caught on to some of the characters deceptions and I liked the ending. Probably would make a great movie with a lot of action packed in. Also love the strong female characters and the foreshadowing of the evil to come.
The Forgotten5By Linda5225Absolutely love this series with John Puller as the hero!! Rates right up there with Vince Flynn's hero, Mitch Rapp!! Excellent read!!
Great Pacing . . . Cool Main Character5By Artman706I’ve followed Baldacci for about 15 years now. His past few books have lacked good character development – not as unique as the Camel Club group – and the dialogue has been pretty cut and dry – that is, not much banter. Baldacci always provides a good plot – this one kept my attention – and minus a few “unrealistic” scenes, I enjoyed it. I think I like John Puller better than Sean King.
Great story!5By MJDav1sWhat a great, action packed story! I liked the characters, and I liked way the story unfolded. The story kept me interested until the last page. I will recommend this book to my friends.
Stupid1By StaynavytomNo wonder we have a gun violence problem in America. Books like this should have a violence rating like the movies so that i know not to buy them. I did not finish third chapter it was so disgusting. Wish iTunes had money back policy.
