Publisher's Summary

The third title in the John Puller series to follow Zero Day and The Forgotten. Military CID investigator, John Puller, has returned from his latest case in Florida to learn that his brother, Bobby, on death row at Leavenworth Military Prison for national security crimes, has escaped.

Preliminary investigations show that he may have had help in his breakout. Now he's on the run, and in disguise, and he's the military's number-one target. John Puller has a dilemma. Which comes first, loyalty to his country or to his brother? Bobby has state secrets that certain people will literally kill for. But blood is thicker than water, and the brothers are close although even John does not know for sure what Bobby really did for the government, nor if he's even guilty of his crimes. It becomes swiftly apparent, however, that Bobby's role was powerful and far-reaching. With the help of John's long-time friend and colleague, General Julie Carson, both brothers move closer to the truth from their opposing directions. And this case puts John Puller in a place he thought he'd never be, on the other side of the law, where even his skills as an investigator, and his strength as a fighter, might not be enough to save him. And his brother.

    Story
    "Male narrator difficult listening."

    Enjoyed this but was overall seriously marred by male narrator's voice, it almost sounded as though he was drunk! particularly as the female was crystal clear.
    If the same narrator pops up elsewhere it is unlikely I would purchase the book.

    "Excellent Escapism.."

    The two narrators here really make the story come alive, and the occasional sound effects make it akin to a Radio Broadcast Drama.. Brilliant.

    "Thrilling with great twists and turns"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book has it all, a great story with real characters and enough twists and turns to make you sea sick.


    What other book might you compare The Escape to, and why?

    One of the things I really like about David Balldaci's books is the plot is always different there is no 'it's a Camel Club book, so it must be about.... Or it's. John Puller book so the theme must be about x y or z. This is a fresh,exciting book and stands alone in the series.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    It has to be when the Puller's get to the cottage, and find who the other 'baddie' is!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    And round the next corner is......


    Any additional comments?

    A book that leaves me wanting more of John Puller.

    "Love the occasional sound effects"
    Would you listen to The Escape again? Why?

    Yes, because the narration and sound effects and occasional music overlay makes this an enjoyable listen.
    This is a company upgrading audible books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Puller for obvious reasons to those who have read the previous two books.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Father and sons meeting was so emotional.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I would certainly listen to any further books based on this character.
