No Man’s Land

(John Puller #4)


David Baldacci


No Man’s Land is the fourth in the John Puller series by David Baldacci.  John and Robert Puller’s mother disappeared without trace thirty years prior.  The boys’ three star general father is now suffering from advanced stages of dementia.  The Puller family receive a letter from a former acquaintance accusing the retired General Puller of murdering his wife all those thirty years ago.

It is up to the Puller brothers, accompanied by a female colleague to solve this mystery.  And solve it they do.

Entwined in this plot is a super strong criminal created by a clandestine research program, which operated all those years ago and is still operating.  An espionage ring selling government secrets to commercial enterprises also adds some intrigue to the plot.

Everyone who knew Jackie Puller when she was alive has nothing but praise for her.  So why did she disappear.  Was it marital problems or an extramarital affair?

I should also add that No Man’s Land was narrated by Kyf Brewer with Orlagh Cassidy providing the female character voices.  Both narrators provided excellent character voices for this book, which as I have repeatedly written, makes or breaks an audiobook.

I don’t think I have read a David Baldacci book that I have not enjoyed so my review may be biased.

However my four star rating is still below the Goodreads average from over 18,000 ratings.
