I just met Special Agent John Puller Jr, Army CID, for the first time. He is the lead character in David Baldacci's new novel, THE FORGOTTEN (ISBN 978-0446573054, $27.95, hardcover) due for national release on November 20. 2012. Don't expect to find this book in libraries or bookstores until that date. Mark your calendars.

I have read a few of the author's previous books and it appears this book may be part of a series unrelated to Baldacci's Camel Club books. Further investigation on my part is warranted. If nothing else, the author is a great story teller who produces fast paced action adventures for his protagonists.

The story begins with Agent Puller's Aunt Betsy sending a letter to her brother, Lt. General John Puller (retired commander of the 101st Airborne Division) who is an Alzheimer patient in a VA hospital in Virginia. That letter sets in motion an eventful trip to Paradise (Florida that is) for Agent Puller. When he gets there, Puller discovers Aunt Betsy has died but was it an accident or murder? Several others die shortly after Puller's arrival and they all knew Aunt Betsy. Coincidence? You know what most investigator's say in mystery fiction, "I don't believe in coincidence!".

During his investigation of Aunt Betsy's death, Puller meets Mecho, a six foot six inch
un-gentle giant, beds Brig. General Julie Carson and uncovers a criminal empire trafficking in human beings. The bad guys are really bad, the good guys are not what always appear to be and the atmosphere is hot & humid.

Go. Buy. Read.

Jim Harris.....the first John Puller was Zero Day and most readers thought
since it was published a few months after Lee Child's THE AFFAIR...that ZERO was a copy-cat.
Well, we did have two heroes with similar military backgrounds!
I, for one, was very happy that Baldacci had "killed off" the Camel Club books....and thought
John Puller would make a nice protag for a new series.
Then I read The Forgotten. Although set in Florida (my neck of the woods), it
was a disappointment. Too bad, so sad. Be careful what you wish for!
