Special Agent Puller's brother is the country's most wanted criminal, but his conviction points to a cover-up--and a dangerous enemy bent on burying the truth in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

It's a prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know it's impossible...until now.

John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason. His inexplicable escape from prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller must bring in his brother to face justice.

But Puller quickly discovers that his brother is pursued by others who don't want him to survive. Puller is in turn pushed into an uneasy, fraught partnership with another agent, who may have an agenda of her own.

They dig more deeply into the case together, and Puller finds that not only are her allegiances unclear, but there are troubling details about his brother's conviction...and someone out there doesn't want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Puller's masterful skills as an investigator and strengths as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother--or himself.

    Very good read!
  • His worst

    By Tim From Aitkin
    I've read a few of Baldacci's stories and I've always truly enjoyed them - until now. I found these characters difficult to relate to and the entire story hard to follow and silly. I also found myself disgusted by his almost continuous use of the word "sucker". I'm no prude, I hear and have used words that are worse. But he used this word over and over and I found it totally inappropriate. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    I was thrilled to see both brothers in action. John's brother's bit in both of the previous books is what stood out to me the most. Learning everything and seeing them both out in the field was exactly what I wanted from this book. The action was A+. This book didn't have as many twists as some of the author's other books. Overall I definitely enjoyed it.

    A wonderful journey into the world of espionage. Each time you think you have a handle on just what is going on you reach another turn in the way things are really happening. Even at the conclusion of the book you are keep guessing at further events! Will eagerly await reading the author 's next book!
