My first Baldacci read ever and this book was great as a stand alone. I was hooked from the start and really enjoyed reading agent Puller kicking ass. I enjoyed the different POV and was not able to fully predict the ending.

Definitely one of Baldacci's best books. I really like the Puller character and am amazed how he compares with Jack Reacher.

I read this before I read Zero Day and enjoyed how John Puller operated. His relationship with his father is a difficult one and his aunt is another interesting character in a highly intelligent and enterprising family.

Maybe it was just me, but I had a problem with this story. I usually like David Baldacci's stories, I found that .half way through the book I still couldn't find the plot. As I said, maybe it was just me.

Crime story about an old woman who is murdered and her nephew/ army warrant officer who goes to the Gulf Coast of Florida and then encounters a series of other murders that might be tied to his aunt murder. The local police get involved and questions abound as to their involvement in a series of other crimes in their small town. First time reading Baldacci; alot of military references and tactics. Readable.

A good read, fast paced.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: This is a fast-paced thriller situated in a small town on Florida's Gulf Coast. Innocent people are killed when they stumble onto a human smuggling ring. John Puller, an Army investigator, is drawin in and must team up with surprising partners to solve and resolve this.
