Publisher's Summary

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.

    "thoroughly enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to The Forgotten the most enjoyable?

    narration always plays a big part.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    pretty edgy...had a few unexpected surprises


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I can't remember.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no extreme reaction...laughing or crying was not applicable to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Always like a Baldacci read, oops - listen

    Story
    "Let us not be "Forgotten""
    Where does The Forgotten rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Baldacci has another great book on his hands... it is a great pleasure reading an action packed book without being filled with foul language and sexual exploits! Only a talented writer can accomplish that and they are fewer and fewer of these types of writers.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Puller was my favorite character because he didn't go with the flow, and he respected his elders.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Character!


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

    It was... but because of a busy lifestyle I was not able to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the listen!

    Story
    "not one of Baldacci's best but an OK read."
    Would you listen to The Forgotten again? Why?

    probably not - wasn't that interesting. The story line just wasn't believable and the action was predictable and not exciting.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    started out as semi-believable went down hill from there.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    they do a great job of making the story pop, as they have with other Baldacci's novels. shame the story wasn't better.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    won't happen - too many better books out there.
