David baldacci the escape review
The Escape (John Puller, #3) by David BaldacciIts a prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know its impossible.
John Pullers older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason and national security crimes. His inexplicable escape from prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller takes on the burden of bringing his brother in to face justice.
But Puller quickly discovers that there are others pursuing his brother, who only see Robert as a traitor and are unconcerned if he survives. Puller is in turn pushed into an uneasy, fraught partnership with another agent, who may have an agenda of her own.
They dig more deeply into the case together, and Puller finds that not only are her allegiances unclear, but that there are troubling details about his brothers conviction....and that someone is out there who doesnt want the truth to ever come to light. As the nation-wide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Pullers masterful skills as an investigator and strength as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother-or himself.

Thank you! Puller's equally virile and handsome brother, Robert, an Air Force major, is serving time in the U. Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, following his conviction on charges of treason. As the book opens, he performs a seemingly impossible escape from his cell. Standing in his way is the mysterious fact that an unidentified dead body has been found in his recently vacated cell.
He is good looking, patriotic, strong, smart--and a member of an illustrious military family. He is a loner who becomes involved with a woman now and then, but his main companion throughout the series is his cat AWOL. His father, also John Puller, was a legendary general. Now he resides in a VA hospital with dementia. His brilliant older brother, Air Force Major Robert Puller, once an expert in nuclear weapons and cyber security, is in a maximum-security prison--the United States Disciplinary Barracks, or DB for short - having been court-martialed and convicted of treason.
