    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

    Pretty good story. I can see Baldacci writing several Puller books. Puller seems to be inspired somewhat by Reacher, but is not exactly the same.

    There is a few times when "Puller said nothing" and he does head butt a guy which is one of Reacher's favourite moves. Patricia pointed out some other parallels.

    To Carolyn : Orlagh Cassidy has done the female voices for several Baldacci books now. She was Michelle Maxwell in The Sixth Man. I thought she did Annabelle Conroy in one of the Camel Clubs.

    Anyway, I had trouble getting into The Magicians and Damned. Baldacci has a knack of getting you right into the story pretty quick. If you are a fan of this genre (Sean King, Oliver Stone, John Corey, Reacher, Pendergast, etc) you will like this book.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Don't pass this book by because of the narrator!"
    Overall

    You can hear the narrator breathing quite frequently. Keep in mind, however ... 1) The book is told in first person. The narrator becomes Harry Dresdren. When you hear breathing and sighing you have the sense it is Harry doing it not the narrator. 2) This is the first book of a great series. There are 14 all together. The narrator gets better and better. 3) Pretty much everyone who doesn't have a problem with the narrator loves these books. They are great fun! Don't miss out.
