Fast-Rope Reading – What’s Ronie Reading
A few years ago, I was lured into David Baldacci’s writing and story worlds by his incredible gift of writing stories that make me want to know, “How are you [David] going to fix/solve/stop that?” Every time I start one of his books, I swear I unleash a demon called CONTROL because that’s what his books do–they control my life, forcing me to abandon everything else until the last word is read. At which point, I get angry. Cuz it’s over. And dude. There are MONTHS before he releases another (and it’s an Amos Decker novel!!).
Two men. Thirty years.
John Puller’s mother, Jackie, vanished thirty years ago from Fort Monroe, Virginia, when Puller was just a boy. Paul Rogers has been in prison for ten years. But twenty years before that, he was at Fort Monroe. One night three decades ago, Puller’s and Rogers’ worlds collided with devastating results, and the truth has been buried ever since.
Military investigators, armed with a letter from a friend of Jackie’s, arrive in the hospital room of Puller’s father–a legendary three-star now sinking into dementia–and reveal that Puller Sr. has been accused of murdering Jackie.
Aided by his brother Robert Puller, an Air Force major, and Veronica Knox, who works for a shadowy U.S. intelligence organization, Puller begins a journey that will take him into his own past, to find the truth about his mother.
Paul Rogers’ time is running out. With the clock ticking, he begins his own journey, one that will take him across the country to the place where all his troubles began: a mysterious building on the grounds of Fort Monroe. There, thirty years ago, the man Rogers had once been vanished too, and was replaced with a monster. And now the monster wants revenge. And the only person standing in his way is John Puller.
