Publisher's Summary

No Man's Land by David Baldacci is an exciting thriller featuring special investigator John Puller, who is pursuing a case that will send him deep into his own troubled past.

One man demands justice....

John Puller is the US Army's most tenacious investigator, but he is not equipped to face the truth about his mother's disappearance 30 years ago. New evidence has come to light suggesting that Puller's father - a highly decorated army veteran - may have murdered his wife.

When Puller's friend, intelligence operative Veronica Knox, arrives on the scene, he realizes that there is far more to this case than he first thought. He knows that nothing will prevent him from discovering what really happened to his mother - even if it means proving that his father is a killer.

...the other seeks revenge.

Paul Rogers has just been paroled after spending 10 years in a high-security prison for murder. And with his freedom comes a desire to pay back old debts. Harbouring a dark past that changed him in unimaginable ways, Rogers embarks on a journey across the country, set on a path of revenge against the people who took away his humanity.

As both men uncover a trail of deception that stretches back decades, they soon realise that the truth will bind them together in ways they could never have imagined.

Twists and turns..above average

I am a baldacci fan and have read them all. No man's land is full of typical twists and turns...starts well with a whole lot of suspense but becomes a bit tortuous and boring in the middle...I felt it could have been shorter..too much action is better visualized in a movie than in a book..
The performance was good...

Look out Jack Reacher!

I really, really enjoyed this novel. I have followed John Puller since the very first novel and have likened him to a less aggressive Reacher. But that's probably because he's still in the army!!! Because he's not always by the book when it comes to matters affecting his family.

This story involves another family member - his mother - especially as it relates to his father and her death! However, the real star of the show in this, is Paul Rodgers. I'd LOVE it if Baldacci wrote a series around this guy! He would DEFINITELY be Reacher material, and the adventures that he would have!!!

This was released about the same time as Lee Child's Jack Reacher novel, Night School. I have now read them both and, to be honest, even though I enjoyed them both, this was head and shoulders above Night School. All I can say is, "Look out Jack Reacher! John Puller is after your crown!"

Another enjoyable Puller story involving family.

Not quite as exciting as the previous three books but kept me interested. Was disappointed to see Ron McClarty was not narrating but Kyf Brewer turned out to be great as well.

Off the charts amazing from start to finish :)

David Baldacci is an amazing author, this is the 4th book in the John Puller series, it's fantastic from start to finish, I could not stop listening.

It's read by Orlagh Cassidy and Kyf Brewer who are both very talented and make listening to the book wonderful :)

Cannot wait for the next Baldacci Book

On chapter 3 but getting irritated by narration.

What did you like best about No Man's Land? What did you like least?

Kyf Brewer is driving me nuts. The man can narrate. His voice is good but WHY does he change his voice to a vacuous surf dude when reading the lines for Puller?
This is ruining the book for me.

Bring back Ron McLarty

I couldn't believe they would change the voice of John Puller in the 4 th book. Why? I had listened all previous 3 john Puller books over the last couple of weeks, so he was set in my mind. This version with a husky voice and brusque personality wasn't anything like the other three portrayals. The story was much less detailed and intricate as books 2 and 3. , but I very much like the ongoing development of the family story line.
I like John Puller much more than Jack Reacher, and I hope there are more. I feel there is so much more character development possibilities here. However I think Baldacci was having a bad day with this book ax for me it didn't have the usual amount of twists and turns I have come to expect.
If this is your first book in this series don't give up on them just on the basis of what I've written here or this book I still would've wanted to listen to it because I wanted to see how a the family storyline played out and
I do definitely want more John Puller and Agent Veronica Knox.

Typical Baldacci!

First off there are some elements in the story that feel a bit wierd. The intrigue is good and the performance of the narrators is fantastic! See, no spoilers!

Good listen

Any new book from david baldacci is worth a listen, i have listened to every book in this series and enjoyed them all. There is always a good story line and some good action. I love the way this is narrated by both a mail and a female narrator, it really brings the story to life. If you like lee child, brad thor and vince flynn or just a really good listen then give this a try.

3am, I need to sleep, just one more chapter

Would you consider the audio edition of No Man's Land to be better than the print version?

No, I lose myself in a book, audible or print, I am there! I smile, I jump I cry, I get angry. The best advantage of the audible is I can do others things, I can garden, do my housework etc. ( and sneak it under the covers when insomnia strikes)

What other book might you compare No Man's Land to, and why?

I doubt I would have finished it if it reminded me of another book. This is the fourth in the series and all are different, fresh and exciting.

Have you listened to any of Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes very professional. It was like welcoming home old friends.

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

Unfortunately yes. I kept promising myself, just one more chapter, but, with so much going on I needed to do just one more. Gave up at 4 am. Insomnia has it's advantages

Any additional comments?

One on the characteristics of a good writer is to make an outrageous situation believable. Here is Paul " made" to be a cross between the Incredible Hulk and the bionic man. Not only did I believe it, but was "rootin" for him. Hoping he and Puller would meet up and work together. Did they? Listen and learn

Another great Agent Puller tale

I enjoyed the story as much as the previous John Puller books but was disappointed with the narrators. I enjoyed the narrators for the previous books much more.

Not new premise, but told with intrigue

I felt like I had read the basic storyline or seen it in a movie many times over... but Baldacci has you invested in the characters as usual, and guessing at the many twists and turns.

Tone of voice wrong for John P

Kyf voice and reading are very professional.
However the tone chosen for the main character is somewhat whiny and just jars with previous performances. His voicing for Paul was great.

Chapters not correctly synced

Great story as always. Didn't really like the new male narrator. Chapters out of sync with the chapter of the book, which I find really annoying and a bit lazy on the part of the people who produce the audio books.

This story got me looking at google maps!

Would you listen to No Man's Land again? Why?

Continuing on with Pullers' story, this is a great 4th book to tie off some old threads.

What did you like best about this story?

it's not as predictable as you might think.

More formulated dribble and implausible nonsense

Now I know these types of thrillers demand a reasonable capacity to suspend reality and just go with the flow. However if you are grounded in reality with a healthy sense of critical thinking ability, you will find it hard to accept the absurdity of this book. If you are into jingoistic heroes and politically correct assignment of characters it might be your cup of tea but for me I will put it down to a learning experience and avoid reading further John Puller stories.
