Book review: No Man’s Land by David Baldacci

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 Permalink

I’ve mentioned before that David Baldacci is one of my go-to authors. I haven’t loved ‘all’ of his series, but have enjoyed most and his John Puller series is no different.

I reviewed The Escape – the third book in the series two years ago (and my Goodreads account tells me I read #1 but missed #2). It’s the sort of series that doesn’t really matter if you come upon them part-way through as Baldacci is well-versed in getting readers up to speed without laborious amounts of detail.

Book review: The Last Mile by David Baldacci

I’d like to pretend that I scheduled my review of The Last Mile by David Baldacci today on purpose. But alas, it’s mostly coincidence that (according to Facebook) – it’s a year ago on this very day – I posted my review of Memory Man, the first book in Baldacci’s new series featuring the quirky Amos Decker.

I adored that book and fell a little in love with Amos Decker. And neither he (nor Baldacci) have done anything in this second outing to diminish my affection.

Book review: The Guilty by David Baldacci

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 Permalink

In all honesty I have no idea at all if I’ve read any of the Will Robie series by David Baldacci. In fact, I didn’t know it was a series until I discovered my latest arrival, The Guilty, was number four.

I inwardly groaned and hoped I didn’t struggle with the book given my lack of backstory…. or get bored to tears with too much provided.

However, I could rest easy as Baldacci popped in a little backstory but also wrote to me… ahem… us, explaining that he was taking his character off-course to deal with some unresolved family issues.

So.. The only thing you really need to know about this book is that I LOVE AMOS DECKER!

What a fabulous new lead character David Baldacci has given us. I’ve read most of Baldacci’s previous books and series and—without a doubt—Decker is my fave protagonist. And I say this after only spending one night with him. So let’s just say…. I’m hoping for many more. *Inappropriate sexual entendre intended* 😉

Book review: The Escape by David Baldacci

Saturday, November 8, 2014 Permalink

Robert Puller’s escape from the *unescapable* fortress of the US Disciplinary Barracks in Leavenworth during a power outage comes as a surprise to everyone. Especially his younger brother and military (CID) investigator John Puller who – until that point – had believed Robert to be innocent of the treason charge which led to his incarceration over two years earlier. John’s doubts about his brother’s innocence are further challenged when he learns a man was killed during the escape.
