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.
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.

No Man's Land is the fourth book in the John Puller series by David Baldacci. As with everything written by Baldacci, No Man's Land is a great read.
No Man's Land centers on the story of John Puller's mother Jackie's disappearance from an army base 30 years ago. The mystery had never been solved and Puller had put it out of his mind until new information surfaced. A woman accuses Puller's father of having killed his wife. This accusation reawakens Puller's memories and he won't be happy until he figures out what happened to his mom. His career is in jeopardy the more he digs.
This is a great story. I had trouble putting the book down. I have loved every book in this series. I highly recommend No Man's Land.
