Overview: The Forgotten

The Forgotten is an action-packed thriller based on a crime that has given a picture of an accident. This mystery fiction novel is a sequel to the Zero Day, the first book of the John Puller series. Written by David Baldacci, the book takes you through an investigation by the protagonist and an Army Special Agent, John Puller.

John Puller is the best investigating agent for the U.S. Army:toughest and complex crimes come his way. He has a new case, and this time it involves his personal life:the death of his aunt in Paradise, Florida. Paradise is a small town on the Florida's Golf coast where most of the wealthy tourists and the retirees come to spend some peaceful time on the gorgeous beaches and enjoy the soothing weather. The town is as beautiful as the name suggests.

Though the death is filed as a tragic and unfortunate accident by the local police, John Puller starts his own investigation, and he finds something that contradicts the report:his aunt's letter to his father.

As John Puller digs deeper, he convinces himself that the death is no accident but a brutal murder, and the town has a dark secret underneath the beauty that it possesses. The inhabitants of the town are not so innocent as they look. John Puller finds out a lot of villainous activities that have remained veiled by the beauty and the peacefulness of the beach and the name. Paradise is not so paradise-like.

     A must read for the action adventure junkies 27 October, 2013 On
    All is not what is seems in Paradise...

    David Baldacci is one of my all time favorite authors. His books are fast paced and give instant adrenaline rush. Book after book Baldacci have delivered edge of the set, non-stop pulsating thrillers that leave the readers breathless and asking for more.

    After the exhilarating “Zero Day" – where John Puller was first introduced, this is the 2nd in a thriller series featuring Puller. John Puller Jr. is an Army Special Agent assigned to the Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID). Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest of tough crimes faced by the nation. But this time it’s personal.

    Its starts where Zero Day ends but you don’t have to read the previous one to follow this book. The Forgotten begins with John on vacation following the action packed adventure in Zero Day. He is contemplating whether to return to work or not when his father receives a mystifying letter from John’s aunt Betsy. The letter warned of people who are not what they appear to be and of suspicious things happening at night in Paradise, Florida. John is asked by his father to follow-up on the letter and to visit his aunt.
    When he arrives, he learns that his aunt has died in drowning in her own backyard. Her death is concluded as an unfortunate accident by the local police. John has no evidence to think otherwise or disapprove the claim, but still decides to investigate the case. Give the mysterious letter, especially the line his aunt wrote about “people were not who they seemed” Puller is convinced everything is not what it seems to be. He also wants to dig deep to see if there is any foul play because he feels he owes it to his aunt. In the quest to unravel mysteries and to get to the bottom of things Puller get involve with the local police investigating the case. From the beginning itself he is not impressed with some of the police and their method of work but is able to work with others. Puller is quick to realize that there is treachery steaming underneath the surface in this seemingly idealistic retirement and vacation community of Florida. In a matter of days, other neighbors of Betsy’s die making him sure his aunt death was a homicide and not an accident. Thus, the investigation widens and the story evolves from there.

    While Puller is investigating the murders, another man Mecho, who is very much of a match to Puller arrives the town. He is a man on mission and his intentions are not made clear-whether he is good or bad. He is carrying on his own investigation of the kidnapping of people from other countries and selling them into slavery in the United States. What starts as a murder mystery soon grows to something much bigger mysterious and dangerous!!!

    The center theme of this book is “Human trafficking”. The starting seem like a murder mystery-suspense kind of thing but David Baldacci twist, turn and intertwine things so well that suddenly it’s a international human trafficking case. The story is fast-paced with many chilling twists and lot of man slaughter. The characters are very interesting and the action is edge of the chair type exhilarating!! Especially during the last parts where Pullers take on the action and vanquishes the bad guys head on is really very exciting.The best thing about this novel is the way Baldacci describe and give insight on the type of planning that are essential to consigning/committing as well as solving crimes.
    Having said that there are many murders in this novel but none of them are gory or turn-off. In fact “The Forgotten” is so engaging that you will forget everything else. Baldacci is rightfully called the king of beginning. He has mastered the art of writing prologues. Here also the prologue is one of the high point. It starts with a bang and set the mysterious mood of the novel.

    The first part is a bit slow paced but still very intriguing. The second part is where all the actions happen. There’s very less unpredictability or suspense, there are several twists, but the lack of suspense is made up by loads and loads of thrill and excitement.
    One of negative thing is the overtly mention of the first John Puller book Zero Day or the previous operation in West Virginia as referred here. I have read the book so it was fine for me, I didn’t even notice it until my sister, who hadn’t read it, told me. Yes, the previous book is mentioned but it’s not related to the case. Which I think will irritate the readers who aren’t familiar with the Zero Day as they won’t understand.

    Another thing I wished the author had worked more on was the emotional or personal angle. IMO the hero was not shown much sympathetic about his aunt’s death. Hopefully in the next Puller book David Baldacci will keep this in his mind

    I love it but there still some scope for improvement so I am going for 4.5 out of 5!!!

    >>>>Recommended Or Not
    I would highly recommend this book to all thriller lovers. I am in love with this John Puller series by David. The Forgotten is as good as its predecessor. I loved it so much that I am already waiting to read other outings and adventure of John Puller. The novel is so addictive and intriguing that it will keep you well glued to the book till the very last. There is not a single boring point. A thrilling page turner with amazing heart stopping action that will leave you asking for more. I am sure readers will have a hard time putting this book down.

    While picking up this book be read to sit wake till the wee hours of the morning because the book will quickly pull you in with its enthralling and spellbinding action.
