Special Agent John Puller, combat veteran and the army's most tenacious investigator, is back in this action-packed thriller from worldwide #1 bestselling author David Baldacci.

NO MAN'S LAND

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.

Until now.

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.

You will root for the bad guy since the government techies are so unlikeable. Baldacci has never been in the military or he would know no service would ever go after a hero general for any reason, especially one retired with dementia..

David Baldacci is known for his ingenuity and No Man's Land did not disappoint. Fascinating and scary science.It would make an excellent movie.

Very different Baldacci book. I thoroughly enjoyed the change of pace. Even the bad guy (made bad) got a chance at life again. Good read.

All of Baldacci's novels with John Puller are interesting. This novel is a bit more sci-fi. It would make a good movie.

The story alternates chapters with two different storylines until these converge. I usually dislike this writing model as the story line changes just when I am getting interested in one of them. In this novel, the author has melded the superhero characteristics of Superman, Spiderman, the Hulk and a robot into Paul Rogers - a killing machine – who is the end result of a military engineering research project to make the perfect soldier. I loved the concept – a soldier who when wounded has a body that self-heals. Unfortunately for Roger’s creators, a throwback to the Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Frankenstein, Rogers seeks revenge. All the while, the Puller boys, sons of a well respected general, try to solve the missing disappearance of their mom from 30 years ago. I enjoyed the story, maybe because of the boy's sudden concern for their missing mom.

Another excellent book by this author. He gives the reader what they want: action, suspense and the need to keep turning the pages.
