Why did I read this?  I had read some Baldacci books in the past and I picked up one while we were on vacation.  I need something to balance some of the heavy non fiction I read, so I am going to use the prolific David Baldacci for that purpose. This will finish all the books in the John Puller series and I will move on to another one of Baldacci’s series.

John Puller, Army CID investigator extraordinaire, gets pulled into an investigation that he shouldn’t be anywhere near.  His brother, Robert, an Air Force officer has been languishing in a maximum security military prison for the last two years after being convicted of treason and espionage.  One dark and stormy night all the power goes out at the prison and after some confusion it turns out there has been an escape.  Robert Puller has escaped and in the process of escaping killed someone.  A large, believable conspiracy is uncovered by John with the help of his brother and an attractive intelligence operative and Robert is cleared of all charges.
