Book Review – “The Forgotten”

the-forgotten“Okay, I’ve seen a lot of bad review on this story as people are comparing it to the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child.   This review is coming from someone who has never read any of the Jack Reacher novels.  Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the first in the series “Zero Day.”  It was filled with action, murder, mystery and a bit of comic relief.  Agent John Puller is an Army CID (criminal investigative division) agent on vacation after what happen in the last book.  He get wind that his aunt wants to see him about some strange happening retirement community she lives in down in Paradise, Florida.  But when he get there and finds that she died in an drowning that was deemed accidental, along with the letter he decides to stick around and do some digging into things.  He soon finds out that things are not what the seem to be and that he has no clue who can be trusted in this beautiful and deceitful little city.  As the story unfolds the plot just seems to thicken.  Someone is going to die or get caught or both or none.  I will let you see for yourself.  I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars and will be adding the 3rd installment to my reading list.” – Norman LaVelle



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 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.
