No Man's Land by David Baldacci is an exciting thriller featuring special investigator John Puller, who is pursuing a case that will send him deep into his own troubled past.
One man demands justice....
John Puller is the US Army's most tenacious investigator, but he is not equipped to face the truth about his mother's disappearance 30 years ago. New evidence has come to light suggesting that Puller's father - a highly decorated army veteran - may have murdered his wife.
When Puller's friend, intelligence operative Veronica Knox, arrives on the scene, he realizes that there is far more to this case than he first thought. He knows that nothing will prevent him from discovering what really happened to his mother - even if it means proving that his father is a killer.
...the other seeks revenge.
Paul Rogers has just been paroled after spending 10 years in a high-security prison for murder. And with his freedom comes a desire to pay back old debts. Harbouring a dark past that changed him in unimaginable ways, Rogers embarks on a journey across the country, set on a path of revenge against the people who took away his humanity.
As both men uncover a trail of deception that stretches back decades, they soon realise that the truth will bind them together in ways they could never have imagined.

"Look out Jack Reacher!"
I really, really enjoyed this novel. I have followed John Puller since the very first novel and have likened him to a less aggressive Reacher. But that's probably because he's still in the army!!! Because he's not always by the book when it comes to matters affecting his family.
This story involves another family member - his mother - especially as it relates to his father and her death! However, the real star of the show in this, is Paul Rodgers. I'd LOVE it if Baldacci wrote a series around this guy! He would DEFINITELY be Reacher material, and the adventures that he would have!!!
This was released about the same time as Lee Child's Jack Reacher novel, Night School. I have now read them both and, to be honest, even though I enjoyed them both, this was head and shoulders above Night School. All I can say is, "Look out Jack Reacher! John Puller is after your crown!"
John puller at his best very well read and keeps you guessing right to the very end
"Off the charts amazing from start to finish :)"
David Baldacci is an amazing author, this is the 4th book in the John Puller series, it's fantastic from start to finish, I could not stop listening.
It's read by Orlagh Cassidy and Kyf Brewer who are both very talented and make listening to the book wonderful :)
Cannot wait for the next Baldacci Book
"On chapter 3 but getting irritated by narration."
Kyf Brewer is driving me nuts. The man can narrate. His voice is good but WHY does he change his voice to a vacuous surf dude when reading the lines for Puller?
This is ruining the book for me.
"Bring back Ron McLarty"
I couldn't believe they would change the voice of John Puller in the 4 th book. Why? I had listened all previous 3 john Puller books over the last couple of weeks, so he was set in my mind. This version with a husky voice and brusque personality wasn't anything like the other three portrayals. The story was much less detailed and intricate as books 2 and 3. , but I very much like the ongoing development of the family story line.
I like John Puller much more than Jack Reacher, and I hope there are more. I feel there is so much more character development possibilities here. However I think Baldacci was having a bad day with this book ax for me it didn't have the usual amount of twists and turns I have come to expect.
If this is your first book in this series don't give up on them just on the basis of what I've written here or this book I still would've wanted to listen to it because I wanted to see how a the family storyline played out and
I do definitely want more John Puller and Agent Veronica Knox.
"Another enjoyable Puller story involving family."
Not quite as exciting as the previous three books but kept me interested. Was disappointed to see Ron McClarty was not narrating but Kyf Brewer turned out to be great as well.
"This is a great read"
I would and have recommended not only this book but the others in the Puller Series. The characters and plots are interesting and keep the reader engaged all the time.
It is hard to pick out just one moment they are so many, the description of Puller's mother's murder. The scene when Puller Senior hears his dead wife's voice and so much, much more.
Well, there is a soothing quality to their voices. The range of emotions both manage to convey using only the tone of voice amazes me. I particularly enjoy having someone read to me, so audio books are perfect for me.
The hardest case Puller has tackled yet grabs him and turns his whole world upside down.
An excellent series with interesting characters and plots. I would recommend them to anyone who enjoys Lee Child's Reacher series.
"Yet another epic from my favourite author"
David Baldacci always keeps you in suspense. His writing style is brilliant and the story even more so.
"John Puller number 4"
Like other reviewers I find the change of narrator to Kyf Brewer irritating.
However, yet another good story from David Baldacci in this series.
Each book is complete in itself but knowing the back stories has added another dimension.
I love the character of John Puller; a lonely, confused, dedicated member of the armed forces police who has unbelievable tasks to solve.
This book revolves around finding the serial murder of women thirty years after the fact. It also has a family connection.
"Good addition to the John Puller series"
This book follows on well from the previous excellent stories in the series. It is not vital to read the previous ones. This story has an interesting premise that gradually unfolds as the story progesses. Excellent narration by the pair, however, odd musical interludes are annoying. Fortunately they are few and you can ignore them!
