John Puller is an officer in the army's criminal investigative unit. He went through some rough stuff in the previous book, Zero Day. The Forgtten beglns where Zero Day leaves off.

Though this is the second book in the series. each one stands alone. Though you don't have to read Zero Dayto enjoy The Forgtten, you'll undoubtedly want to read it, too.

Puller had just returned from some R & R with his cat, AWOL, when his brother, Robert, called him from the federral prison where he lives after being convicted of treason. He said that their father had been looking for John for several days. John Puller, Sr. had gotten a letter from his 86-year-old sister saying all was not well in Paradisee, Florida. People were not who they sseemed, and people were disappearing. She wanted John, Jr. to look into the matter.

John drove the car provided for him to Florida. He went to see his aunt, but she didn't answer his knock. Knowing she used a walker, he went around to the back yard to see if she was in the back of the house. He saw her as he rounded the corner, lying face down in a fountain. She was dead and John didn't think it was an aaccident.

This is one you won't want to put down. Puller is human, though he is larger than life. The criminals areto be worthy adversaries. The plot fairly sizzles with action and changes of direction. The solution is not as it seemsed in the beginning. At least, he has help from Army one-star General, Julie Carson.

Listen as readers Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy make The Forgtten unforgettable.
