John Puller's back, dear readers, and he's in for a real treat! He's a combat vet and the most brilliant detective the military has ever seen. David Baldacci, one of the greatest writers of our time, delivers that "heat" with No Man's Land, so, if you love any of his previous books, you'll most certainly appreciate this one.
John's mom, Jackie, disappeared 3 decades ago from her hometown when he was just a kid. A killer has been rotting in jail for 10 years. But, 2 decades before that, he was in the same place - Fort Monroe. A lifetime ago, the worlds of this man and the young Puller came at each other and collapsed, and the real truth about what happened stayed hidden in the shadows. Well, all secrets eventually come out, and this one is not an exception.
The army investigators get their hands on a very old letter from one of Puller's mom's friends, visit Puller's dad in the hospital and tell him that he's the main suspect in the woman's murder. Obviously, our hero can't let the whole world think that he's the killer of his own mother, so, he asks his bro Rob for help. So, together with Veronica, an intelligence agent, the three hope to find the answers.
John will have to take a trip down the memory lane in order to dig out the secrets of the past he thought was forever gone. The clock is ticking, and the only way for Puller to prove he's innocent is to go back to Fort Monroe and put an end to something that started 3 decades ago. No Man's Land is an action-packed, suspenseful, thought-provoking and simply un-put-down-able mystery thriller from Mr. Baldacci, a true master at what he does.
