Once again David Baldacci has you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see how John Puller will pull it off and survive the latest escapade. Puller constantly finds himself in the middle of a mystery which ends up in a dangerous situation.
The author does a great job of developing the characters and setting up the intrigue. There is the usual sexual tension, but not overt extra descriptive details. Puller is a class act…caring about his father but walking that fine line to respect his history with the military and his mental acuity issues. He has a great way of looking at things and figuring out how to solve the mystery. And he’s just a tough bird…physically able to take on the bad guys, smart enough to work through the clues, and do caring things for the lost and downtrodden.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
