Robert, fratello maggiore dell'agente speciale John Puller, è stato condannato per alto tradimento e crimini contro la sicurezza nazionale. La sua inspiegabile evasione da un famoso penitenziario militare degli Stati Uniti lo rende il ricercato numero uno del Paese. Alcuni esponenti del governo sono convinti che l'agente speciale rappresenti la loro migliore occasione per catturare Robert vivo, ma il quadro emerso dalle indagini di Puller, in collaborazione con l'agente della NSA Veronica Knox, si mostra da subito più complesso del previsto. Ci sono altre persone sulle tracce di Robert e il loro obiettivo è ucciderlo. Come se non bastasse, procedendo nelle ricerche, Puller non solo scopre che la lealtà della sua collega è in dubbio, ma apprende anche dettagli preoccupanti riguardanti la condanna del fratello e l'esistenza di qualcuno interessato a non far emergere la verità. Mentre la caccia all'uomo si fa sempre più serrata, le sue eccellenti abilità come investigatore e combattente potrebbero non bastare a Puller, stavolta, per salvare Robert e nemmeno sé stesso. Nel terzo episodio della serie di John Puller, un'indagine al cardiopalma, un inquietante viaggio nei meccanismi dell'intelligence statunitense e un'acuta riflessione, nell'era della sorveglianza globale, sul diritto alla privacy.

John Puller is getting close to displacing Oliver Stone as my favorite character in David Baldacci' s books. Like fine wine,he is getting better with age! If you haven't read the previous 2 books,I feel you can still read this first. Do yourself a favor and start reading about the exploits of John P Leggi tutto
There are times in my reading life when I wish I had a time travel machine. If I did, I would go back four days in time and never start reading this idiotic book. I am not a great fan of Baldacci's formulaic writing style, but I did enjoy Zero Day - the first book featuring Special Agent Jack Puller Leggi tutto
The 3rd book in David Baldacci’s John Puller Series, about former war hero and now one of the best military investigators in the US Army's Criminal Investigative Division. I liked the 1st book, Zero Day https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... and liked the 2nd even more https://www.goodreads.com/boo Leggi tutto
I felt I would never finish this book. It was very thick and although David Baldacci is one of my most favorite authors this one was a little hard for me. So many things going on in this story, a main character and his brother and a big problem I had with the book, too many Acronyms! But, it was a g Leggi tutto
David Baldacci has done it again. The Escape is a fabulous book, just like the other books I've read in this series and just like every other book I've read by Baldacci so far. I've wanted to learn more about Robert Puller and the crime he's said to have done and now I finally got to know why he was Leggi tutto
Of all the series Baldacci has written, I think the John Puller series is so far my favorite series by him, the series just gets better and better! At the end it left me wanting more, and I have a feeling it's due for a sequel. Filled with many twist and turns throughout, and awesome character devel Leggi tutto
Again so good to read my favourite type of book, and one of my favourite authors. Although my list of favourite authors is always going up! David Baldacci has for quite a few years been one of my favourites, especially with his two great characters, Will Robie and also John Puller the star of this gr Leggi tutto
It's impossible to describe what a treat it is to read a well-written action thriller that kept me turning pages even when I should have been doing other things and kept me wondering how it would turn out until close to the end. Of course, it shouldn't have come as a big surprise; this is the third
The Escape continues the upward movement of the John Puller series on the enjoyment curve. The reason is that Baldacci finally gets his act together and the book shows it. The story is good, the characters great, the action awesome and the finale fantastic (sorry, got carried away with the atrocious Leggi tutto
So exciting and so many twists. I love the Puller brothers. It was fun to get to know Robert. But that ending....so bittersweet. Knox!! Why?? And that’s all I’m going to say. Suffice it to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
