The Forgotten

By David Baldacci (Audiobook, 2012)
In Paradise, nothing is what it seems...

THE FORGOTTEN

Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case-but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.

What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident . . . and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.

  • THE FORGOTTEN by David Baldacci

  • "Baldacci's palpable tension keeps the pages turning-and leaves you eager for the next in this new series." (The Star-Ledger on Zero Day).

  • "Readers expect excitement and intrigue in David Baldacci's books, and Zero Day is no exception...As Baldacci's new hero narrowly escapes countless close calls, the pairing of the author's imagination and knowledge create a wild ride for the reader.  Puller is gutsy, brash and likable.  Best of all, he survives to reappear in the next book of this new series." (The Free-Lance Star on Zero Day).

  • "A complex puzzle . . . Baldacci is a master craftsman." (Associated Press on The Sixth Man).

  • "Authentic scenario, mystery piled on misdirection, and more double-crosses than a tic-tac-toe tournament." (Kirkus Reviews on The Sixth Man).

  • "Another winner . . . Skillfully constructed and very difficult to put down. Baldacci keeps peeling back layers of Stone's psyche, revealing him to be a man full of unresolved conflicts and a potentially self-destructive amount of guilt over his past actions." (Booklist on Hell's Corner).

  • "It's his eager, expansive imagination that drives his books . . . Like other thriller writers, Baldacci depends on a mixture of inventive plotting, appealing characters, luck, and consistency. Unlike others, his books rely more on characters' relationships than whiz-bang technology or procedural twists . . . What he offers is in some ways more unusual." (Newsweek on First Family).

  • "A rousing success . . . Baldacci shows once again that he is a sort of thriller Renaissance man: a master of plot, dialogue, and character." (Booklist (starred review) for Divine Justice).

  • "High-stakes action, shadowy government agencies, and [a] neo-Cold War backdrop . . . Baldacci pushes his plot ahead at such a blistering pace." (Washington Post on The Whole Truth).

  • "Gripping, chilling, and full of surprises." (Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold).
