I am not a great fan of Baldacci's formulaic writing style, but I did enjoy Zero Day - the first book featuring Special Agent Jack Puller. It read like a shameless Lee Child rip off, but was no less enjoyable for that. Puller reappeared in The Forgotten, this time investigating the death of his aunt. Again, the writing was taut, the su ...more
I liked the 1st book, Zero Day https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... and liked the 2nd even more https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... and was very happy to get into book #3.
John Puller faces the most difficult and personal assignment, when he’s given the task of finding and arresting his older brother, Robert, a former m ...more
I am so sorry Mr. Baldacci. Forgive me Chief Puller.
This series is head and shoulders better than any of Mr. Child's excellent Jack Reac ...more

David Baldacci has for quite a few years been one of my favourites, especially with his two great characters, Will Robie and also John Puller the star of this great book.
Puller's equally virile and handsome older brother, Robert, an Air Force major, is serving time in the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, following his conviction on char ...more
This one, though, has a major twist; Puller's genius older brother, Rob ...more

The best thing about his stories is the depth. He takes his time to set the stage without rushing or using shortcuts. He also sets a fast pace and has plenty of action. I was pulled into this book from the very beginning. There were creative twists that kept me interested. I also liked the introduction to the ...more

Apparently this is book 3 in the John Puller series, but it was perfect as a standalone. Sometimes when you jump into the middle of a series, you feel like an outsider, or like you're missing something. I was never lost and felt connected and invested in the characters. This book also had the right amount of action for me. Nothing got too graphic, but nothing too dark or tortu ...more
Enjoy and Be Blessed.
I recently read the second installment in this series and I really enjoyed it - it has been one of my favorite reads this year. I was thus in a hurry to read Escape and the blurb sounded extremely promising. John Puller's brother has been mentioned many times in the two previous books and I was curious to finally find out more about him and his situation.
While Baldacci's books are usually extremely fast-paced, this one started out a little bit slower. There was of course a lot of action ...more
If you want a nice three book action thriller set John Puller wont disappoint i do recommend reading them from the start although The escape is a very good stand alone read
I love the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child. One reviewer said John Puller is a Jack Reacher wannabe. Puller is a 6'4" military police investigator in the army. He’s good at hand to hand fighting plus sniper shooting. His character definition is the same as Reacher but the reading experience is not as fun. I found this to be a typical police procedural. Lots of investigating and talking to people, learning t ...more
Just kidding, at least about the "end of review" part.
In the third installment of the Puller series, John Puller’s older brother escapes from the maximum security wing of Fort Leavenworth's military prison. Robert Puller, once a rising star in the Department of Defense and the intelligence community, had been convicted of treason and national security crimes. The break-out makes him the most wanted man in the country.
In an unusual move, shadowy figures within the g ...more
It was better than Zero Day which is the 1st book in the John Puller series. For me the plots were generally (1) How Robert Puller escaped and (2) Proving the innocence of Robert Puller.
The first plot started out interestingly enough, but after too much dead bodies it started to become somewhat boring. It was only when plot (1) merged into (2) that the pace started to pick up again. Though I do have to admit the "cunningness" of the villain was really frustrat ...more
Too many acronyms; really detracted from the story, unless that's what he was attempting to highlight.
I enjoy a lot of Baldacci's books, some are really good, some OK and some are pretty ordinary. He is such a prolific writer I excuse him for writing books I DNF'd because there are so many I thought were worth four stars and subject to check, I may have given him a couple of hard-to-earn fives!
