    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.

    What did you like best about The Forgotten? What did you like least?

    I expected a little more from Baldacci. The story is a good one, but Balcacci's writing left something to be desired. Some of the dialog is a bit laborious, and not up to what I think is Balcacci's standards. It is nice to have a supper hero like the main character, but you have to retreat to your "engage disbelief" mode to keep it going. John Puller and interloper Mekko are just a bit too perfect. I guess that's how Balcacci does his stories, but I think he could have done better.


    Would you recommend The Forgotten to your friends? Why or why not?

    I do not recommend books to friends, anyway. Their tastes are usually different from mine.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    Plummer was the main, and favorite character even though he was a little too perfect.


    Was The Forgotten worth the listening time?

    To me the book was worth the time spent because I could listen to it in bed to help me sleep.

    A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming...a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Columbia...a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war...NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control.

    "Not A Best Effort"
    Overall

    I have never been a big Cussler fan, but I enjoy his work, occasionally. He is a formula writer, and in the case of Arctic Drift has drifted into pseudo-science territory. If you like the same-old kind of stuff, and are willing to suspend mis-belief, you might like this book. If you get tired of authors recycling plots, this book is not for you. Looking back, I think the reason I bought this book is because Audible put it on sale.

    When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the solar system, the world reacted with awe, hope and fear. But the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, were peaceful traders and the world breathed a sigh of relief.

    Overall

    I really loved this book. It is great entertainment, and the hero is really cool. From packaging groceries to the richest man in the world, Tyler sounds just like anyone, even you and me. Good story, great characters, and good science. Where is book two?
