Great book! Grabs your attention from the first word to the last.
Twists and turns
It kept me interested throughout. Great characters, narration and story! Yes, the hero is a bit superman, bigger than life, but a great ride!
probably not - wasn't that interesting. The story line just wasn't believable and the action was predictable and not exciting.
started out as semi-believable went down hill from there.
they do a great job of making the story pop, as they have with other Baldacci's novels. shame the story wasn't better.
won't happen - too many better books out there.
The storyline is just OK, but the nonsensical dialogue and interaction between a Brigadier General and a CWO (that the author repeatedly and erroneously refers to as enlisted, rather than not a commissioned officer, but certainly outranking the enlisted) is so farcical as to make the last half of the book almost unreadable.
Actually, if I didn't have a thing about leaving books unfinished...
Save yourself the time and credit. This author has never served and has no idea of military culture, despite the fact his main character is active Army. What a waste of almost 13 hours.
A good story, but a little far fetched? I did not like the sound effects.
As I said, a little far fetched. Great for those liking a lot of "action".
Having male and female voices was good.
Not for my liking. Two John Puller books are enough. In fairness, I don't care for books that use the same characters over and over.
I am a David Baldacci's fan, so I will continue to get his books even if this one was not one of my favorites.
Zero Day was awesome and this was an outstanding follow on
Puller wiping out six punks looking to kill him
When he looked at watch I knew he knew who the killer was
Puller saves the slaves
Can't wait for another Pullervadventure
There are few things in life better than losing yourself completely in a really exceptional story. I enjoy reading others' reviews.
So, to take your mind off the monotony of this read, keep track of the number of times the author uses the word "problematic". There are 97 chapters in this turkey, and probably an equal number of "problematic"(s) sightings. Seriously though, this was not a fun read for me.
The storyline had a number of unplugged holes in it, the characters were thinly fleshed-out and therefore, I couldn't have cared less what happened to them, and the dialogues between characters were amateurish, silly, and unreal. It seemed to me that the author couldn't decide between writing a script for either a new "action hero" movie or a rough draft of a new video game. The "heroes" were supposed to be human, but they were granted superhuman features, strength, perception, and marksmanship. Just one of dozens of things that kept losing me.

This is more of a literary criticism of modern day illegal aliens. But good story
I am not a fan of all of Baldacci's books but this one is well worth the read. I loved best the fact I did not figure out the end until the very end.
Very much a page turner. A great read to get away from the world for a few hours.
