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 have bought every Baldacci book just based on his name and I usually enjoy his books, but this one, ugh. It is actually hard to get through. The dialog is awful and the plot weak. I do like when there are two readers, but they added "sound effects" that are just distracting. I have gotten to the big fight scene and still may not choose to finish it. I'm tempted to return it, but .....
Just bad, and disappointed in Baldacci.
I am a retired Child Psychologist who delights in her three grandchildren to whom I passed on the love of reading. They read vociferously.
The story line and its narrator.
That the bad guy got his just desserts, although I don't believe in cruelty as such, I would have preferred that he be taken care of in a more humane way. He was a cruel, despicable, evil, man, but we don't have to act in kind.
Near reality, because of their voices and intonation at appropriate times.
Yes, but I could not.
No, it was a very satisfying read.
I have listened to 100 audiobooks and this was my favorite
I liked it better than his first Puller book
I kept trying to make my dog walks longer so I could keep listening.
Introducing the numerous characters in the audio edition a real plus.
The last chapters as the questions are answered.
Ron's voice at times was hard to listen to.
Easy listening engaging
Very actualized with the day to day life seem very realistic I liked from the beginning to the end fantastic drama!!
Both are good they give life to characters!!
Keep me awake my heart beating fast for the next action
This is the second book I have listened to by David Balacci. I find my self "making time" to listen to this book. Finished way to fast this way. But, loved it!
