We were introduced to John Puller in “Zero Day”. “The Forgotten” picks up where the former left off. Army Special Investigator John Puller had been off work recuperating from all that happened in West Virginia. When his father received a letter from Aunt Betsy informing that something strange was taking place in Paradise, Florida, he ordered Puller to go to Paradise to investigate. When John arrived in Paradise he discovered that his aunt was dead. Although the drowning was dismissed as accidental Puller suspected foul play. He began his own investigation and discovered other deaths. Sometimes enemies look like friends and friends look like an enemy. The bad guys were trafficking in human slavery.
“The Forgotten” is an action packed thriller. In this book we see the emotional side of Puller as he remembers the relationship he had with his aunt when he was younger and as he deals with her father who has dementia. This book is full of action, gun fights, violence, and a touch of romance. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader eagerly turning pages. Though this book stands well alone I recommend reading the first book in this series also. I did find a few mistakes in this book such as the comment that tennis balls on the feet of the walker were for stability; they are to help the walker slide easily. However, the discrepancies did not distract from my pleasure of reading this tale. David Baldacci is a talented author. I like this new series. I think it may be his best.
