In Paradise, nothing is what it seems... THE FORGOTTEN 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.

A thriller with twists and turns. Someone needs slaves and people are disappearing in South Florida. Men, women, and now children are disappearing on a regular basis. What are the police doing about the forgotten? I must say that other things were somewhat neglected so that I could race through this book – and it was worth it. (submitted by JW)

This is my 3rd David Baldacci book, and my first Puller book (I assume it's a series). I enjoyed it, but I find it quite funny that because they are military and have weapons that they can take the law into their own hands (and the cops don't care that much!) I'll read another though.

John Puller's father shows him a letter from his aunt Betsy in Paradise Florida. She says Mysterious things happen in the night, People are not who they seemed and things just didn't seem right. John Puller, who can't resist a challenge goes to Paradise and indeed all is not well in Paradise. Puller finds his aunt dead when he arrives in Paradise. This makes hm more than ever determined to unearth the truth and yes of course he does after a lot of violence.

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.
