    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.

    Story

    I loved this book from the first minute. The sound effects on this one is like a regular production. There are gunshots, bomb blasts and music that make the suspense even more intense. Mr. McLarty and Ms. Cassidy do a fantastic job in my opinion for the characters in the book.

    John Puller does remind me a lot of Jack Reacher that was created by Lee Child. I am hoping that this is just the first in a series because I didn't see an end on this one. I mean I saw an end to this story, but could see others that could be found. John could be given another assignment and be off on another job in the near future and I am sure I will be getting that one as fast as I can.

    Mr. Baldacci never disappoints me in his writing. I think I have read everything by this author and I give him 4 or 5 stars all the time. This one is definitely a 5 out of 5 star book. Especially if you like action and detecting. A couple of explosions and some real serious mayhem.

    The president's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes....

    Story

    I usually love the narration of these books, but this time Andrew Braugher seemed to have a cold and I felt he was rushing to get the words in. Zach Grenier did a marvelous job though especially with the different nationalities that were portrayed in this book. The book didn't seem to be long enough and I don't believe we received the usual psychological make-up of the individuals. The whole book seemed to be rushed to me.

    I do like Mr Braugher as the voice of Alex Cross and perhaps if he had been feeling better, my experience would have been a better one. There is quite a bit of action as in all Alex Cross books, but I felt even that was down played a bit. This book definitely is produced with a lot of music and side effects, but even those didn't seem to be as good as past books.

    I can only give this 3.5 out of 5 stars as I have read and listened to much better books by James Patterson. This is not one that I would rush out and buy at full price like I have in the past.
