In Paradise, nothing is what it seems.

Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the US 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 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Baldacci is a master when it comes to writing about small-town conspiracies and a lone hero who fights against all odds to clean up corruption. The narrative moves slowly, so the reader has a chance to solve the case along with Puller. It might seem straightforward, but the final reveal will surprise even hardcore thriller junkies.”

    Associated Press

  • The Forgotten is a prime example of Baldacci at his action adventure best.”

    Huffington Post

  • “A fast-moving thriller…The majority of the narration is performed by Ron McLarty, with Orlagh Cassidy handling the female characters…Overall both performers are strong and appropriate.”

    Library Journal (audio review)

  • “Ron McLarty is masterful in his narration, using his rich voice and deliberate delivery to portray Puller, a humble but kick-ass soldier-hero. McLarty’s portrayals of the other male characters, especially Puller’s father, are also spot-on, with each being given a distinct voice and accent. Orlagh Cassidy’s portrayal of the various female characters is icing on the cake.”

    AudioFile
