Power. Readers who like thrillers featuring the heroic competence of a righteous protagonist are those most likely to enjoy David Baldacci’s The Forgotten. John Puller is an Army special investigator and the son of a retired and ailing general. The thrill is what happens when Puller goes to Florida at his father’s assignment on a personal mission: to see what is troubling the general’s sister. Puller finds his aunt dead, and uses all his skills and talents to solve the crime. Baldacci keeps the action moving quickly, develops allies and villains with dispatch, and allows Puller to do that he does best. Baldacci kept me interested in this story from beginning to end.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
