Excerpt from The Forgotten

I am working away on my new series and some other projects. As always, be sure to check out the featured posts to the side or the bottom for special deals.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

If you are a fan of high-octane thrillers by authors like Lee Child and Michael Connelly, you’ll like David Baldacci. I just finished reading The Forgotten, a thriller set around the slave trade. Lots of action and humour, with some good twists along the way:

The swim would be long and exhausting and fraught with peril. He could die at many points along the way. But he had survived much to get to this point. He would simply will himself to live.

David Baldacci, The Forgotten

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.

What Puller finds convinces him that 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.

  1. I haven’t read Baldacci in a while…it’s been too long! Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THINGS WE DIDN’T SAY”

  2. Baldacci is always worth the read.

  3. Kathy Martin says:

    Sounds intriguing. I’ve never read Baldacci. My teaser this week is from House Rules by Jodi Picoult. Happy reading!

  4. Florida is a great state for murder, easy disposal of bodies. LOL
