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.

"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.
"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
This was a scary plot in that human trafficking is so easily done. Puller goes to the coast to see what happened to an elderly aunt and is unwittingly caught up in the violence.
"Kept me listening"
Up there near the top
Any Lee Child book but not quite as good
Thought the narration was too American ..okay if you are American of course but a bit heavy for me...also not keen on the music effects that kept coming in
Overall quite exciting, and I wanted to know how it ended. Glad I had listened to the first Puller book as it kept referring to things that happened in it
