Murder in paradise: Military criminal investigator John Puller is drawn closer to home when his aunt is found dead in her house in Paradise, Florida. The local police have ruled the death as an accident, but Puller finds evidence to suggest that she may well have been murdered. On the surface the town lives up to its name, but as Puller digs deeper he realises that this town and its inhabitants are more akin to Hell than Paradise. His belief is confirmed as evidence of strange and inexplicable events come to light. And when Puller learns the truth about what is happening in this once sleepy town, he knows that his discoveries will impact far wider than Paradise.

"Best book I have read"
Great story could not put it down.
Don't take any notice of the reviewer who said sound effects where annoying.
There are a few but ok.
If you are a Reacher fan , you will love this and even rate it better.
Put this title top of your wish list.
"In good Baldacci style"
What a story thrilling from beginning to end. Highlighting a real issue in our society in a captivating way. We should all wake up to the realities of greed
"Getting better with each book is JP jnr"
Good listen with a good story line.
The additional music adds to the experience for me but some might not like it.
Sure it's similar to Reacher but I think there is room for them both.
Hope you enjoy as much as me.
I've got to quite like John Puller, he's an engaging and heroic character, but not quite the man Jack Reacher is. But what really diminishes him in this book is the rake of really cheesy sound effects. What were the producers thinking? If I was Baldaci, I'd be a little insulted, as if the writing can't adequately convey the drama. I'll listen to the next in the series but mainly while I wait for the new Reacher book to be released in September
"This time it's personal!"
Possibly in the top 10
I could see where it was heading but moved slow enough to enjoy and fast enough to keep me interested.
Nice use of to narrators helps with the listening of the dialogue.
No, but no book is!
Great book. Well worth a listen!
Great story, well written and read. I will continue reading the John Puller series. Cant understand the minimum number of words in the review!
"John Puller does it again!"
Another great story from David Baldacci. Fast paced, convincing narration & I enjoyed the twist at the end. John Puller is fast becoming my new favorite hero.
"A great John Puller story.."
The story is as "on the edge" as you can get in fiction book.... great fun
James bond 007 because he can do the impossible, that might just be possible..
Ron has a strong convincing tone to his voice, Orlagh, has a great supporting role.
It kept me awake, wanting to hear what happens next
Looking forward to hearing what happens with John Puller again in the next story.
"Very good performance on a good to average book"
Good popcorn book, whilst not one of the authors better story it is definitely worth a listen when you want to be taken out of the humdrum, but do not want to engage your brain or emotions to any great extent - you will like it, but if you have any pretensions you'll probably hate yourself for doing so
As others have mentioned very similar in tone and texture to both vince Flynn and Lee Childs, not a bad thing in itself
Characters can appear slightly one dimensional at times but the action is present, well thought out and scripted as with these other two authors
The Undeafeatable hero, the nod to legality and the justice system, and then the complete disregard for both of the above, and then victory supplied at the end
Initially the performance did seem slightly dry, but as the book progressed the use of the two person performance and the nature of the written word came together in an effective way which did help to raise the audiobook above what it could/should have been
Not a book to be listened to for an emotional journey, a book to be heard when brain is turned off and you just want to be entertained
Worth a listen, and the author is definitely worth investigating esecially his earlier works, which to me are an improvemnt on his later stuff
"A worthy successor"
I enjoyed book 1 in the John Puller series and this one did not disappoint. You don't have to read them in order but it does help you understand the characters. David Baldacci writes a cracking thriller. The narration is excellent and I like the use of a female to voice the female characters
