Will I continue to read the Puller series? Yes I will, but mainly because I only have two more Reacher books to read (19 and 20). If you like crime thrillers where the hero is a man's man then you will probably enjoy John Puller. However, after the first read for me there are still better characters of this type out there (Reacher, obviously but also Stephen Leathers' Spider Shepherd) so let's see how Puller develops in book two!
Also, no offense but this has been done before. Too many times before. The main character is Puller who is a highly decorated and obviously has issues regarding PTSD. He saves a lot of people but remembers the one's he couldn't save.
Puller is a good guy. The bad guys in this book are evil. When Puller go's on an investigation the guy has this bottomless pit rucksack that seems to hold everything he needs. Think Reacher. I saw Tom Cruise everywhere.
The story isn't too bad. But I like Baldacci when he keeps you guessing. This was kind of obvious. It's a good action novel just kind off predictable. Enjoy!

John Puller, a Criminal Investigative Division, or CID, special agent is sent to investigate the murder of Colonel Matthew Reynolds a member of the DIA, Pentagon, His wife and two children were also murdered in the home of his wife’s parents in the coal mining town of Drake, West Virginia.
Sam (Samantha) Cole is the police officer in Drake who helps John Puller sort out what actually happened and what information Colonel Matthew Reynolds had got hold of that led to his and his family’s death and also their neighbours.
I’d forgotten how much I love David Baldacci books until I stumbled over this one. It’s clever, has a conspiracy theory, a love interest and is full of all sorts of interesting information. The town of Drake must make coalmine owners shudder because of the bad publicity he gives it, but that’s good, he’s making a stand on bad mining practices, which we all know carry on regardless.
There is a second John Puller book, which I’m definitely going to read.
It's not technically as well written as the Child books either. The body leaned into his strong arms, indeed. And some of the punctuation is annoying. Still, make your own mind up.
