Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.

Possibly in the top 10

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I could see where it was heading but moved slow enough to enjoy and fast enough to keep me interested.

What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Nice use of to narrators helps with the listening of the dialogue.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but no book is!

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.
