In Paradise, nothing is what it seems....
Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.
A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.
What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident… and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.

I am always looking for a good series. I love Lee Child, John Sandford, & Michael Conelly; so i am always nervous to start a new one because I compare it to those. After the second book I am liking the character more and more.
I loved listening to this book. The author does a great job of painting a picture of the scene and people and allows your mind to fill in the gaps. Don't get me wrong it's not Shakespeare and it's not meant to be, but it is entertaining. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
A letter from an aunt spurs an investigation that leads from murder to international slave traders.
Then there is the question of who do you trust!
A great read!
I read the book and thought I would listen to the audio. I always enjoy the sound effects of these books. Its kind of like watching a movie but no parts are taken out. Any body with an imagination who also loves these kind of book - this is a must listen. Keep up the excellent work.
Unlike most audios, having the guy/girl voice really brings the book to life. Love it, Love it Love it.
