John Puller may be the US Army's most tenacious investigator, but he is not equipped to face the truth about his mother's disappearance thirty years ago. New evidence has come to light suggesting that Puller's father -- a highly decorated army veteran -- may have murdered his wife. When Puller's friend, intelligence operative Veronica Knox, arrived on the scene, he realized that there is far more to this case than he first though. He knows that nothing will prevent him from discovering what really happened to his mother -- even proving that his father is a killer. Meanwhile, Paul Rogers has just been paroled after spending ten years in a high-security prison for murder. And with his freedom comes a desire to pay back old debts. Harbouring a dark past that changed him in unimaginable ways, Rogers embarks on a journey across the country, set on a path of revenge against the people who took away his humanity. As both men uncover a trail of deception that stretches back decades, they realize that the truth will bind them together in ways they could never have imagined. --… (mais)

Another solid effort by Baldacci. John Puller Jr. is once again drawn into a family drama when a dying woman accuses his father (Fighting John Puller, a three-star general suffering from dementia) of murdering his mother some thirty years ago. Despite threats from many sources, Puller discovers a serial killer was active in the area, and the investigators were told to stay away. Meanwhile, a killer is released from prison and is seeking retribution against the person who made him into one. Inexorably, the two plots drift together. I found Puller's distrust of his former secret agent friend Knox as well as the complete abandonment of the antagonist by powerful allies hard to believe. Guess that is why it's called fiction. ( )

3.5 stars (rating shown may vary depending on the site).

I have read other books with John Puller Jr. (aka Puller) as the main character. Baldacci is usually one of my "go to"s when I know I want to read a book I'll enjoy (though I did recently choose one of his where that was not the case).

When the book began, I was thinking that prisoner Paul Rogers was on death row awaiting execution--suddenly, he's being freed a day earlier than he thought he would be. (Lucky for him as we find out later.) He heads back to Fort Monroe for personal reasons.

John Puller Sr. has sunk into dementia. I did miss some of the interaction between him and his son John Puller Jr. (the titular Puller of the series) where the father would think his son was his XO. After 30 years, the wife of one of Puller Sr.'s men dictates a letter to her husband which accuses Puller Sr. of killing his wife back when they lived at Fort Monroe.

Jackie Puller left home one night and never returned. Puller starts looking into the matter to try to clear his father. Along the way, he has to confront that his memory of that last day with his mom has gaps.

Is this the end of the Puller series? Maybe. This storyline wraps up what happened to Jackie and gives the family closure on that. Puller Sr. will obviously not be a character involved in future storylines (unless some miracle cure happens in the world of fiction). Though he may, perhaps, show up in other series (he did make an appearance in an Atlee Pine novel) and this novel hints at a relationship between him and Veronica Knox.

I was surprised at the ending between Rogers and Suzanne Davis. So the book did throw a few twists I didn't predict into the mix. ( )
