Maybe it's time to quit reading Baldacci's books..... I'm a long time fan of David Baldacci's books, but I would not recommend this one at all. The first 300 pages could have been condensed into perhaps 20 and the last into 5. Bottom line, lots of wasted pages and words. Perhaps it's the John Puller character that leaves me cold. In reading over the initial reviews, my pulse was supposed to pound, etc. All I kept thinking as I read this book was---seriously? All this is going on and no one is paying attention outside a lone military man who just happened to be in town? The topic is timely and could have been better approached than simply killing everyone and blowing up cars. I think Baldacci's books have turned into a contest with a few other writers to see how many kills can be registered. I'd like to see Baldacci return to true investigative type writing or even books like "One Summer".

I've always lookd forward to reading Baldacci since the Camel Club series (by far the best series he has written). This book is good, but is more like an action movie with unbelievable escapes. I think The Innocent us by far the better book, but the Puller character jumps from the page if you really crave action.

Great story but by page 175 Ive experienced 3 areas where pages/dialog is missing very frustrating

Tried too hard for sexual equality in the military. There is no way a one star female general working in the pentagon is as tough as a battle hardened 6'4 280 pound army ranger. This was a silly theme throughout the entire book.

I enjoyed the book, finished it tonight. Would not give a spoiler alert, but was glad the way it ended.

Very soft and predictable plot. Not up to previous work.

Started off very interested and then when Puller and other's got injured in the action scenes, they became physically invincible - difficult to believe they could keep fighting.  I enjoyed the Camel Club story line better.  However, Puller is an interesting character that deserves  a better story line.

This book gives you more to look forward to by just reading the back cover.

Loved it! John Puller isn't at all like Jack Reacher but if he is in some ways, that is a GOOD thing. Great story, great characters. David Baldacci is a terrific author. Highly recommend.

Really great - the plot had me from the 1st chapter; can't wait for the next book.

Baldacci did his usual outstanding visual journey into crime thriller with "The Forgotten." I thoroughly enjoyed his character building and story line. Baldacci's novels are always a good read, leaving the reader eagerly awaiting the character's next mystery. From the Camel Club series, to King and Maxwell, and carried on with Will Robie, all his story lines are exciting from page one through the last page. I highly recommend his works to any reader interested in crime mysteries.

For some unknown reason, I'm very drawn to the David Baldacci novels. His novels aren't so very predictable. Instead of falling asleep reading, as I do with many other books, it kept me up into the wee hours reading and losing sleep. I didn't want it to end.

The Puller novels may stretch believability, but they're fun and action-packed, with the usual Baldacci twists and turns. A great beach read. Also recommend Zero Day, the first Puller book.

Really enjoyed this book and with the happenings in DC right now, not that far-fetched. Always like a good tale from DB.

I was extremely happy with this book. I couldn't put down the book and it is one of my favorites. If you like the character, Jack Reacher, written by Lee Child, then you'll love this one too. Grady

Living here in Florida I found the book very, very interesting and exciting. Love to have this guy as a protector, my goodness he's a stud.

Entertaining read, page turner. However, being a wife of a retired Army member and having worked as a civilian for the Army for 15 years, I question/doubt the validity of the main character being able to perform the actions in the story. I think David Baldacci needs to take time off from writing and perform more in-depth research.
