Special Agent Puller's brother is the country's most wanted criminal, but his conviction points to a cover-up--and a dangerous enemy bent on burying the truth in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

It's a prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know it's impossible...until now.

John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason. His inexplicable escape from prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller must bring in his brother to face justice.

But Puller quickly discovers that his brother is pursued by others who don't want him to survive. Puller is in turn pushed into an uneasy, fraught partnership with another agent, who may have an agenda of her own.

They dig more deeply into the case together, and Puller finds that not only are her allegiances unclear, but there are troubling details about his brother's conviction...and someone out there doesn't want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Puller's masterful skills as an investigator and strengths as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother--or himself.

Predictable and unbelievable. I have read some of this authors books before and found this one to be not up to par.

Great read in the series, I wish I had someone to drive when listening. Love the John Puller series, like the consistency of the narrator for each book in the series.

David Baldacci continues to impress with third installment of the John Puller series. Although the book was written several years ago, he correctly predicted a real life horrible event that happened overseas this year. Both narrators are awesome at their different voices for each character so that you easily know who is talking, which makes for seamless listening.

Dumbed down and unbelievable. Not a good one from this author. Female narrator is less than appealing.

The narrator talks so very fast that I can't understand all the words. This is a problem even with the volume turned up. I guess you aim to make the recording as short as possible, timewise, but it was not fun trying to decode the narrative. Also it was a little confusing that all the female roles were read by the same woman. They all sounded alike. The same applies to the male roles. I did like the story a lot.

Bravo David Baldacci! Another super spy/mystery with Chief Warrent Officer John Puller. Kept me on the edge of seat right to the very end. Looking forward to the next book.

Narration was very good. The story, even with its twists and turns, was predictable. Baldacci has written better books, but this one is worth listening too if you spend a lot of time on the road.

Very good. The book itself was a good read and the narrator was a pleasure to listen to.

A decent thriller, a bit hard to follow on audio since 2 characters are brothers and have the same last name. A bit implausible after another character survives 2 separate bomb blasts unscathed...really, not even a broken eardrum?
