    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

  • Into the Wilderness: Wilderness Saga, Book 1

    Weaving a vibrant tapestry of fact and fiction, Into the Wilderness sweeps us into another time and place...and into the heart of a forbidden, incandescent affair between a spinster Englishwoman and an American frontiersman. Here is an epic of romance and history that will captivate readers from the very first page.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I purchased this book because of the reviewers who said it reminded them of the Outlander Series. I disagree. It is a historical novel and there is a love affair, but that's as close as it gets. I don't know how to explain it - other than, i could listen to the Outlander series over and over. I don't want to listen to this book again. The characters did not come alive for me. Perhaps if I hadn't read the Outlander series first or didn't go into this book - thinking it was a Outlander want-a-be, I might feel differently.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Would have preferred a different ending.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gillian Flynn? Why or why not?

    Maybe - but only if the reviews indicated that the ending was believable.

She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    What would have made The Distant Hours better?

    If it was shorter - and the ending was better


    Has The Distant Hours turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I had read Secret Keeper by the same author, which I really enjoyed. I thought this book would have been similar, but it wasn't. I was restless and didn't find the mystery believable. I would not recommend the book. Sad characters also.
