Especially when even the police in Paradise behave mysteriously. Then, more and more people suddenly begin to die. What is the connection, and how is the big man that one night save Puller's life?
Is he a friend or foe? For it seems that he is involved in the case in some way I thought The Forgotten was a very good book, there is absolutely no problem reading this book without having read the other books in the series. Personally, I'm very eager to read the two books I have not yet read in this series. Thanks to Bokfabriken for the review copy!
Oct 22, Jim rated it it was amazing. Mark your calendars. Further investigation on my part is warranted.

That letter sets in motion an eventful trip to Paradise Florida that is for Agent Puller.

When he gets there, Puller discovers Aunt Betsy has died but was it an accident or murder? General Julie Carson and uncovers a criminal empire trafficking in human beings. May 19, Christine rated it it was ok Shelves: From the book description: The local police have ruled his aunt's death an un From the book description: I enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to reading this second instalment in what I assume is going to be a series.
The story itself is okay but I was looking for a little more information on characters his imprisoned brother he alluded to in the first book. Sadly this did not happen.
Since I am writing this review, obviously I soldiered on pun fully intended and finished the book. Despite an interesting surprise twist at the end it is still not Mr. Feb 01, Jonah Perry rated it it was amazing.
The author masterfully creates a whirlwind of swirling plot and suspense, upheld until the last word releases a pungent taste in your mind. After each chapter another truth is revealed towards the epic conclusion. The author employs a menagerie of literary techniques to enhance the story. From irony to cliffhangers, Baldacci is the master of double meanings and suspense.
The novel opens up a new door unveiling the hidden problems of slavery in America today, and it contrasts the ever-growing gap between the upper and lower classes. Puller has a genuine, candid personality that makes him even more real, and he helps the reader embezzle the ever-deepening plot. I wholly recommend this book to anyone looking for the bliss involved with reading high paced novels.
Nov 26, Jeff rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book gets interesting once we realize "The Forgotten" is about human trafficking. This is not the typical political-thriller Baldacci plot I'm used to. There were also some typos, for example: View all 7 comments.
I can't believe GoodReads doesn't have this in its data base.
Dec 27, Luffy rated it it was ok Shelves: So this is how a bestseller novel from feels like. I've been reluctant to dip in contemporary waters. Maybe I shouldn't have.
I welcome the easy plot and prose. In fact, I prefer wasting my time on this kind of book rather than a murky and confusing masterpiece that is out of my grip.
That doesn't mean I should cut The Forgotten any slack. Not on my watch buddy. Any attempt at serious and world wise ideas are undermined by childish ones. The editor clearly passed a sub par product.
The best passage for me was when the Paradise police headquarters was being described. It was spotless down to a t, and emphasis was laid about how it looked like a movie set.
I liked that, and I like writing which is self aware. There are a couple of new factoids here I've been told that Puller is a Jack Reacher clone. Not clone, but wanna be. I haven't read Jack Reacher, but if the latter is as similar to Puller then I don't have much incentive to read on him as he is generic as hell himself.
But I must not judge a character like this, maybe Jack Reacher is backed by good authorship. But almost all of these thriller book heroes are muscle bound apes with ridiculous intelligence and robotic speed, stamina and decision making. Not to mention altruistic. I welcome the easy style of the book. Ease of writing may quicken the reader to the end, making for fewer stops in less days.
This immerses the reader into the story. That's what a good book with little artistic pretensions or ambition does. There is a series of books, the Pizza Lovers' Mysteries, that I've read this year which does just that. But that was a cozy mystery. There the ease in style worked in favor of the genre, and for me anyway, those mystery books transcended their limitations.
I was surprised by a few things. I thought that Landry's partner was childish and that he was going to get his wish of being a pain in the hero's ass. He didn't. I also found it deflating that despite having no proof on the lieu of his aunt's murder, Puller irrationally believed in her being silenced.
It would have been better if Puller had proved his salt and dug up at least inconclusive evidence. The Forgotten is one of the highest rated books on site. I checked a few of the one star reviews.
David baldacci the escape ebook
They were concerned with the ridiculousness of the detective sides, and the dialog. I didn't pick up much on that. But I do recognize how ordinary and lazy this effort from Baldacci is. The latter is too devoted to his hero, making him to be a killing machine. The first part of the book the writer hints that in battles Puller survived because of his skill and tenacity.
Later the emphasis was laid on luck having a say. By that time, however the damage was done. View all 4 comments. Feb 24, Sean Peters rated it really liked it. Another David Baldacci book read, with four out of my last six books. This story continues straight after Zero Hour and his recovery, mentally and physically. Starting with a letter from his aunty to his father. The s Another David Baldacci book read, with four out of my last six books. The story takes place in a place called Paradise, in Florida.
Baldacci builds all the strong characters in this book, and when you get to the last few chapters the story becomes so fast paced, tense, action packed, and I had no idea of one of the guilty personalities. Recommended as fast paced, action, tense, although sometimes John Puller is superhuman as is Jack Reacher! Just slightly prefer Will Robie character. View all 5 comments. Jan 18, Mike French rated it it was amazing.
Puller is a great character!
Enjoyed both of books featuring him and looking forward to more. View 2 comments. Apr 26, kartik narayanan rated it really liked it Shelves: John Puller finally gets going in The Forgotten. It has tons of action, a decent mystery and excellent characterization. Basically, all the stuff I expected in Zero Day and didn't find there, I found it here in spades. John Puller is less of a one man army than Jack Reacher is.
He is still a badass but is not averse to seeking help. He needs assistance in action and he needs cooperation from locals - this makes a lot of difference to the story. Apr 27, Lorrea - WhatChaReadin'? Betsy Simon is Puller's aunt, and was instrumental in his upbringing while his father served as a General in the Army.
The letter instantly puts Puller on high alert and he heads to Paradise, FL to check on his aunt. When he arrives, he finds that she has died in her backyard and the local police have written it off as an accident. Puller does not believe this to be true, John Puller is on vacation from his duties as a CID officer for the Army when his father, receives a letter from Betsy Simon.
Puller does not believe this to be true, despite his aunt's ailments and age. Conducting his own investigation, he is determined to find out what happened to his aunt and what is going on in Paradise that had her so rattled.
Another gripping John Puller novel from David Baldacci. Even on vacation, Puller can't escape crime. He thought he would go down to Paradise, FL and just be able to talk to his aunt about what was troubling her in the letter she sent to his father.
She did ask for his help in the letter, but Puller never expected she would be killed for it. While investigating his aunt's murder, more people end up dead, friends of his aunts, and people go missing.
Things just don't seem to be so great in Paradise after all. With the help of the local police, Puller tries to get to the bottom of what is going on. Are the police in on the disappearances of people?
Are they trying to cover up what really happened to his aunt by calling her death an accident? During this investigation, Puller finds out some disturbing happenings in Paradise. Will the local police accept his help to get to the bottom of it or is this small town in on the whole thing.
Nov 27, Anand rated it liked it. Puller is Reacher's clone gone awry. I had read the introductory installment of the Puller series 'Zero Day', and now I have finished this second and latest installment as well, and both seem average compared to Lee Child's Reacher.
And more than anything else, it is the characterisation of the protagonist that is the differentiator. Reacher comes across as someone special, and there is something inherently romantic about his being "off the grid", not having weapons, not having even an ATM card, Puller is Reacher's clone gone awry.
Reacher comes across as someone special, and there is something inherently romantic about his being "off the grid", not having weapons, not having even an ATM card, and least of all having the legitimate backup of authorities. Puller has all of these at his disposal, and that takes aways from the romance and awe.
Reacher reaches out to everyone despite being a loner and manages to attract, and Puller fails to have enough pull despite being mainstream. Am I being shortsighted in judging this only comparatively, and not on its own as a novel?
I don't think so, given that the author has knowingly created a character that is "borrowed", so the comparison is not unfair or unwarranted. Having said that, even on its own the novel is at least a pages too long with a lot of unnecessary detail, descriptions and explanations. The plot becomes predictable by the second half. Overall, average entertainment. Not bad, but not good either. Jan 23, Lewis Weinstein rated it really liked it Shelves: This thriller met all of my criteria: Baldacci is to be applauded for creating a successful new character and a new series.
For those who complain that Puller seems like Reacher, I agree, but it doesn't bother me. There's room for both, and the personalities are different enough despite some obvious similarities.
There are also a few - more than a few - implausible actions or coincid This thriller met all of my criteria: There are also a few - more than a few - implausible actions or coincidences. Could even a general call in a lethal helicopter air strike on American soil?
Again, this doesn't bother me. I expect that in a book like this. John Puller is not supposed to be like the rest of us. For me, this kind of book is a mind-clearing exercise as well as a good read. So I finished last night and this morning wrote two scenes which I think really sizzle. Mission accomplished - Puller's and mine. Dec 28, Judie rated it it was amazing. John Puller, Army Special Agent, is asked by his father to follow-up on a letter his father received from his sister Betsy in Paradise, Florida.
The letter warned of people not being what they appeared to be and of suspicious things happening in Paradise. When he arrives, he learns that his aunt has drowned, an unfortunate accident according to the local police. While he has no evidence to disprove that, he decides he owes it to his aunt to investigate and if her death were a homicide, to find John Puller, Army Special Agent, is asked by his father to follow-up on a letter his father received from his sister Betsy in Paradise, Florida.
While he has no evidence to disprove that, he decides he owes it to his aunt to investigate and if her death were a homicide, to find out who did it and why. Puller is not impressed with some of the police involved in the investigation but is able to work with others. At the same time and in the same place, another man, Mecho, is carrying on his own investigation of the kidnapping of people from other countries and selling them into slavery in the United States.
The story is fast-paced with many twists and turns. Author David Baldacci provides insight into the planning of the various operations necessary to both commit and solve the crimes.
There are a lot of killings but, overall, the word pictures are not gory. One negative note is his frequent references to a previous operation in West Virginia. And his Aunt was right: Dec 22, Lee rated it did not like it. Was I reading the same book that people are raving about?How many copies would you like to download?
The best passage for me was when the Paradise police headquarters was being described. It's also pretty forgettable. In some cases, Puller probably wouldn't hesitate to arrest Reacher, assuming Reacher would let him. A very intense story along with powerful characters, it will keep you reading well into the night.
