Publisher's Summary

The third title in the John Puller series to follow Zero Day and The Forgotten. Military CID investigator, John Puller, has returned from his latest case in Florida to learn that his brother, Bobby, on death row at Leavenworth Military Prison for national security crimes, has escaped.
Preliminary investigations show that he may have had help in his breakout. Now he's on the run, and in disguise, and he's the military's number-one target. John Puller has a dilemma. Which comes first, loyalty to his country or to his brother? Bobby has state secrets that certain people will literally kill for. But blood is thicker than water, and the brothers are close although even John does not know for sure what Bobby really did for the government, nor if he's even guilty of his crimes. It becomes swiftly apparent, however, that Bobby's role was powerful and far-reaching. With the help of John's long-time friend and colleague, General Julie Carson, both brothers move closer to the truth from their opposing directions. And this case puts John Puller in a place he thought he'd never be, on the other side of the law, where even his skills as an investigator, and his strength as a fighter, might not be enough to save him. And his brother.

Gets better with each book

Not a genre I ever thought I would enjoy American military but his heroes are well written and extremely likeable. Good plots several twists and turns and inevitable red herrings. Can't wait have the next one ready to start.

Male narrator difficult listening.

Enjoyed this but was overall seriously marred by male narrator's voice, it almost sounded as though he was drunk! particularly as the female was crystal clear.
If the same narrator pops up elsewhere it is unlikely I would purchase the book.

Not bad, but not as good as it's predecessors.

Previous books were a big story on a small stage, this one had the world at the brink and everyone running around taking orders from a super hero Warrant Officer, too much of a stretch. Puller is a good character and Baldacci can spin a tale but I preferred it when the story was bigger than the stakes.

Keeps you interested

Would you listen to The Escape again? Why?

Yes, I liked how everything tied together

Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favourite?

Puller is a complex character, but straight up and no nonsense.
