The story not being a re-tread of Lee Child's Jack Reacher (admittedly out of Army now, but even his description was similar.)
NO...I'm stopping. I used to love him but got tired with the Camel Club and am just done now.
I like Audio books and the performance was fine... it was just that I couldn't believe the similarities with Jack Reacher and feel that Lee Child could sue successfully!
Well, I guess I would just try to re-do the main character so he's not another Jack Reacher!
I usually enjoy Baldacci books, and this one was a good story, a good concept. Yet too many times the story seemed to be going all over the place unnecessarily. I enjoyed the concept of the story line and I thought the narration was really great. I would recommend it if your into Baldacci, but skip it if you have other options and possibly come back to it.
Just my opinion :O)
It was one of my favorites that I have read by David baldcacci
It had the perfect characters , JOHN PULLER , he is a great man , strong , smart , TOUGH ,and calm under pressure .. He had a female officer to help him and she was just perfect for him , smart , not to tough , and didn't overpower John . They worked together and she was just cocky enough to be interesting
They bring life to the story
Yes this is the only book that I shed a little tear , when the lady Cop was killed
I liked this book very much with just the right characters
People that like bad popcorn burner movies, nonsense plotline twists and the same old antagonist's that reinforce there stereotypes.
No, just David Balldacci
The narration was OK, did not not help the story though. Ms Cassidy did a terrible job, her voice was flat and uninterested.
I'd have told them to not publish this garbage,It was all God Awful, really.
Worked in radio stations all over California from A to Z; KABC, Los Angeles and KZAP, Sacramento plus many more in between. I was a voice talent, copy writer and production director; I'm retired now but still do voice overs.
Quality writing, superior characters and one hell of a read. Nice thing about David is he doesn't write bad books.
The take-down of DHS head at the end
Yes I listened to part 2 of this book and it was done just as well.
No but it did hold my interest the whole way through
Long haul commuter. Audiobooks keep me from causing serious physical harm to my fellow commuters. Bless you, Audible!
After reading the reviews, I approached this title with some healthy skepticism.
The character is unique, I'll start with that, John Puller is an Army investigator, Still in the Army. He carries a lot of cool equipment with him. He is not someone to trifle with.
I found the story engaging and the characters beleivable. There was even one character with a name so close to mine I nearly swerved into another lane when he was introduced.
To me, this character is still being formed in the authors mind, but has amazing potential for great adventures. I also got the feeling that the author did not want the story to end where it did. I'm glad to see there is a second book and that will be my next purchase.
This is a great book to introduce you to a new character in a new series. People have mentioned that it is a copy of the Jack Reacher series but I don't see this. I have listened to all 17 books in the Jack Reacher series and I can say without a doubt that this is a completely different character. I admit that Both characters are big and tall as well as being army investigators means that there will be some similarities but otherwise John Puller is a separate character. This is a very good start to the John Puller series and I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the Jack Reacher Series.
The narration was well done and fun to listen to
Not really, Pretty predictable
I cried near the end
