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.

Very go

Very good story. This book kept my attention all the way through. I like a story that doesn't have so many characters that you can't remember who they are. I also appreciated the lack of foul language.

Baldacci and Puller are a good team.

Typical Baldacci quality. Thrilling story about a subject that is unsettling and necessary to tell. Worth the time to listen.

Enjoyable

I also enjoy books by this author. I have no clue how he comes up with what he does. The audio version was good but I could do without the gunshots and hits along with the music. Just give me the book without the hoopla. As we know the slave trade is still going strong and this book plays on that. I thought the story was quite believable and well written. John Puller is a man I would want on my side if I was in trouble. If you like any of this authors books than you will like this one.
