    1 thought on “No Man's Land

    1. This book feels dated. Worse than that, it's been done so many times and by other writers of the Thriller/Crime genre.Furthermore, the story was contrived. No matter how much we go on about the six degrees of separation: to have all the players of a story conveniently placed (for the first time in 30 years) within mere miles from each other was unimaginative and reeked of writer manipulation. Mr. Baldacci has written some of my favorite books (Saving Faith; Absolute Power) but No Man's Land is m [...]

    2. Baldacci proves why he is the master of his genre with another exciting novel in his John Puller series. After returning from his latest military assignment, John Puller is visited by two military officials with potential news of a cold case from thirty years before. Jacqueline "Jackie" Puller left the family home one evening after supper, leaving her sons, John Jr. and Robert, with a babysitter. When she did not return, her disappearance was investigated, but no changes were ever laid. Accompan [...]

    3. This has to be one of the most deserving, strong choice for 5 stars. Two for Puller, two for Robert Puller, and one for Puller Senior. The book has a military root, from which Baldacci grows his plot, and making all the threads bloom in unison.I had always though that the smaller the chapters, and the greater the chapter numbers, the more addictive I'll find the book. But, in this case, The fair-length chapters are readable because of the content, not the format.The story is one of good vs evil. [...]

    4. Sometimes, I want to kick back and read a book or two just for the pure pleasure of it. Such is the case now, when the notion of cooking Thanksgiving dinner for two groups of relatives on two different days has had me stressed out for a month. So, I put my ever-growing stack of free-for-review books aside and turned to new entries by a few of my favorite authors.And oh, what a relief it is! This is the fourth in the John Puller series, and I've been looking forward to reading it ever since I lea [...]

    5. No Man's Land is David Baldacci's fourth instalment of the great character John Puller.At the heart of this story is a tragedy that has clawed at John Puller heart for more than three decades. As a boy, Puller’s mother went missing. The ensuing investigations and searches into her disappearance went nowhere, and she was never heard from again. Now, for the first time in thirty years, new evidence has surfaced.Puller’s father, John Sr who is now fighting dementia in a VA hospital, had always [...]

    6. Once again have I read the latest book in a series without having read the previous books. That's my special power. Well, it's probably just that I keep on discovering series when a couple of books have been released. I always see that as a good thing, when the book is really good because now I know that I have several books to read. And, No Man's Land was good, pretty awesome actually. I found myself really enjoying the story and its characters.I always love when a story deals with old cases, a [...]

    7. Tediously predictable mystery about the Puller family while the General's health deteriorates. Very disappointing!

    8. Another solid effort by Baldacci. John Puller Jr. is once again drawn into a family drama when a dying woman accuses his father (Fighting John Puller, a three-star general suffering from dementia) of murdering his mother some thirty years ago. Despite threats from many sources, Puller discovers a serial killer was active in the area, and the investigators were told to stay away. Meanwhile, a killer is released from prison and is seeking retribution against the person who made him into one. Inexo [...]

    9. I was soooo excited to read this book! All of his other John Puller books have rated four and five stars with me and I think in my head I had moved them all to a five star rating, because I couldn't wait to get my hands on this oned I am so disappointed. This book was so so stupid, in my opinion. I just kept wanting it to end. My favorite person was Paul and I am not happy that I found Puller so unlikable in this book. As it is a series and not a one off I want the main character to be my favori [...]

    10. After an irritatingly slow start with one interesting character, this story finally takes off like a rocket in the second half. While the first half could have been better written, Mr. Baldacci makes amends in the end. 8 of 10 stars

    11. As I've said before I'm not overall a David Baldacci fan. I find there are books of his I like and books I thoroughly dislike. This series so far has been firmly in the like category. While at times the character's points of view may annoy they don't run over the books story nor distort the characters themselves.This is the 4th in the John Puller series and our hero with the Army's CID (Criminal Investigation Division) again goes of the reservation in an investigation he's been ordered "off of" [...]

    12. TITLE: No Man's Land SERIES: John Puller (Army CID/Investigation) - #4AUTHOR: #4David BaldacciRELEASED: New release, (November or DecemberI'll add this later), 2016KEYWORDS/GENRE: Mystery, fiction, new fiction, thriller, military, investigation, murder, Army, government, male lead/main character, unsolved crime(s), Army CID, federal law, law enforcement RATING (0-5 star scale): 4.5 "Fighting John Puller" stars THOUGHTS (purely an expression of my OPINIONS):Truly excellent story in a favorite se [...]

    13. In The Escape it was personal for John Puller as his older brother Robert had supposedly escaped from jail. #Spoileralert – he was innocent of all charges and is back in the army where he’s seemingly doing exciting and important things.John’s back in CID and continues to be held in high esteem as a military investigator, but he’s again caught up in a case that’s personal… and one that’s not officially his.There’s a concurrent plot running through this novel and it centres around [...]

    14. Well this one definitely kept my interest and didn't seem like the 417 pages it was. My only beef, and the reason it didn't get another star, is I just found some of this story so far-fetched and unbelievable. I don't want to go into details and possible spoilers, so I'll just leave it at that.Regardless, Baldacci always delivers an engrossing story.

    15. John Puller (main character) is a Army CID (Criminal Investigation Division) officer. He investigates his mom, Jackie, disappearance while his family lived 30 years ago in Fort Monroe, Virginia - he wants the truth! John Puller Sr. (Dad) was a 3-star Army general, now in VA care center with Dementia (memory disease). Was expected of murder when she disappeared? Or did she run away?Veronica Knox of NSA (National Security Agency) helps Puller solve the case. Maj. Bobby Puller (brother - Air Force) [...]

    16. I'm never disappointed by Baldacci. This is a great series. John Puller is a CID officer in the U.S. Army (Criminal Investigation). #4 in this series brings us again to the opening scene of John sitting in the rest home with his aging father, a former General revered by many, but now in the late stages of Alzheimer's. As he is visiting his father two officers come in to give him the news that some information has come to light with discrepancies in a 30-year old case involving the disappearance [...]

    17. The Puller brothers are at it again. When they said “Army Strong” they weren’t kidding and it shows in this #4 of a sequel. John Puller was just a little boy when his mother mysteriously went missing 30 years ago. Puller’s father thinks she just up and left them. The Army gets a letter and all hell breaks loose. Puller Sr who is now in a home with Alzheimer's, is accused of killing his wife and the Puller brothers decide to aggressively pursue the case. Taken place in Fort Monroe, VA, on [...]

    18. Better than the last John Puller story, but I still don't find this character all that interesting. I still read everything Baldacci writes. His bad stuff is still always pretty good.

    19. Another great Baldacci flick! No Man's Land is the 4th outing of CID Officer John Puller! This time Puller is on another personal case, he has received a letter saying that his father (who has dementia that has progressively gotten worse since the last book) has something to do with the mysterious disappearance of Puller's mother 30 years ago. The authorizes have ordered Puller to stay away from the case but he refuses, and tries to put the pieces together about his past and discover the truth. [...]

    20. Every time I read a book from the Amos Decker series I think that is David Baldacci's best series going. Every time I read a book from the Will Robie series I think that is his best. So accordingly, each John Puller entry causes me to consider that this may be his best series! They are all interesting, entertaining, and fun to read! I'm not an expert literary critic but I do definitely enjoy reading each of these series of books.

    21. (I'm going to try and use GIFS for the first time in my review so bear with me haha my internet at home sucks cause so many people in the family are on it so I hope they show up)4 1/2 starsSo this had such a strong beginning especially when Baldacci introduces a new main character Paul Rogers. You're first reaction when you hear he had injured like break bones injure with his bare hands in prisonoh and he even killed someone with his bare hands as well it gets you thinkingand then BAM! He kills [...]

    22. This is one of my favorite authors and I always enjoy his books. Another book where I could not put it down, just kept reading until I finished. Love the mystery and intrigue. Two characters who you know will become intertwined and they do, one an Army man and one a "bionic man". Never read a bad book by this author. Definitely recommend if you like mystery and suspense.

    23. Audio Book - 11 hours 40 minutes - 4 out of five stars.David Baldacci is a remarkable author. His output is prolific, with over forty books published since 1996. I have read many of them and yes, there are a few duds as far as I am concerned, the Camel Club series for example, but he remains one of my very favourite writers of adventure/thriller novels. The Will Robie, John Puller and King & Maxwell series plus eight or nine stand alone novels have been enjoyable over the years, and "No Man' [...]

    24. John Puller is a top Army investigator but he is not equipped to face the truth about his mother's disappearance 30 years ago. New evidence has come to light suggesting that his father a highly decorated retired General may have murdered his wife. When Puller's friendintelligence operative Veronica Knox arrives on the scene he realizes that there is more tothis case than he thought. Now nothing will prevent him from discovering what really happened to his mother even if it means proving that his [...]

    25. This fourth novel in the John Puller series is excellent in my opinion. It has a lot of mystery, well developed characters and I thought it was one thrill ride of a novel. (It would make a great movie). John Puller has been visiting his father, the decorated general, in the care home where he resides due to dementia, when he receives a letter from an old friend of his mother's from thirty years ago, when John and Robert's mother had vanished, seemingly into thin air. The friend claims that she b [...]

    26. Funny. I lost a month of reading due to an audiobook rental's sudden expiration. When I picked back up it was like there was no gap in time at all. I believe that to be based on the strength of plot, character development, pace and setting. Baldacci went borderline sci-fi here and that's perfectly okay. I'd actually like to read another with the superhuman Paul Rogers

    27. I wish we could rate in half stars, as I'd have given this one a 2.5 instead of a 3. I can't really pinpoint why I didn't like it quite as much as the previous books, but I suspect it had more to do with politics than with the actual writing, since the rah-rah politics of the Vietnam war seemed to take up more space in this book.
