    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.

  • The World of Downton Abbey

    Downton Abbey portrays a world of elegance and decadence, a world of duty and obedience, and a world of romance and rivalry. This companion book, full of rich historical detail, takes fans deeper into that period than ever before. Experience the inner workings of the downstairs life and be dazzled by the glamour of upstairs life with profiles of all the major characters, interviews with the actors, and behind the scenes insights.

    Teddy says: "Fun look at the backstory to Downton Abbey"
    "Midly interesting. Eliz McGovern better actress"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Having someone British narrate this would have made it better.


    Would you recommend The World of Downton Abbey to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not, I think.


    How could the performance have been better?

    As I said, she is a better actress than narrator. She sounds boring.


    Do you think The World of Downton Abbey needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    As the series progresses, one would probably be interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Maggie Smith would have made an interesting narrator

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Amazon Customer says: "A great book"
