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.

"Amazing story, well written fantastic production!"
This book is amazing it's the second in the John Puller series. The Audio is off the charts the gun shots and action scenes whilst the story is being read is the best part, it's like watching a movie :)
David Baldacci is amazing all his books I have listed to are fantastic :)
Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy are very talanted they make the Audio book worth listening to.
"What's with the sound effects?"
Reasonably good Baldacci story ruined by sound effects that seem to come from some 1970s cop show, awful and unnecessary. Didn't like the two narrator thing either, Ron McLarty OKish but Orla Cassidy lacked range in characterisation. If the production is the same for the rest of the series I will revert to old fashioned reading!
"John Puller Book 2"
Set against a background of personal loss and human traffickers, John Puller fights injustice in a sleepy Florida town.
With numerous twists and turns the story keeps a good pace and is an engaging listen.
"Excellent all round"
Fast paced, entertaining story, really well read. I like the occasional incidental music as it makes it more interesting and the two actors are excellent and it's so much better than than one doing all the voices.
david baldacci has produced a great sequel to zero day, looking forward to the third instalment of the puller series
"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!
