The Escape by David Baldacci Book Summary

Special Agent Puller's brother is the country's most wanted criminal, but his conviction points to a cover-up--and a dangerous enemy bent on burying the truth in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

It's a prison unlike any other. Military discipline rules. Its security systems are unmatched. None of its prisoners dream of escaping. They know it's impossible...until now.

John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason. 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 must bring in his brother to face justice.

But Puller quickly discovers that his brother is pursued by others who don't want him to survive. 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 there are troubling details about his brother's conviction...and someone out there doesn't want the truth to ever come to light. As the nationwide manhunt for Robert grows more urgent, Puller's masterful skills as an investigator and strengths as a fighter may not be enough to save his brother--or himself.

The escapeI loved this book!! David Baldacci is one of my favorites, he never disappoints with his always intriguing suspenseful challenges to your thought!! And this one was top notch.Score: 5/5

Best Puller yet!This is the best Puller novel yet – and the other two were excellent! For those of us who served in the military it is necessary to overlook certain attitudes, simplified scenarios, and the need for the characters to cut through, what would realistically be an incredible amount of red tape, policy, structured bureaucracy and a world of overt institutionalization, to forward the story. However, the story lolls the reader into a forgiving acquiescence that allows the suspension of disbelief that is so necessary to keep a fan desperately reading, ever reluctant to have to put the book down. The progression of the story keeps the reader guessing and reassessing those guesses time and again as information is divested and characters are elucidated. I can’t wait for the next one. However, I was disappointed General Julie Carson didn’t find a way to be more substantial either militarily or personally – seems she could have been used to do a lot more of the behind the scenes snooping at the top levels of power… but who knows? Maybe including general officer so far down the rank and file was a regrettable mistake in the first place and now corrected? I liked her though – don’t we all wish we had leaders who walked the walk and demonstrated loyalty downward?.Score: 5/5

Back to the good lifeGlad mr. Baldacchi is back to what he does better than anyone. Writing spy novels about national security. Please don't ever stop, because I can't get enough of his writing..Score: 5/5

Ghost Writer?First two books were great! Although this one is a page turner as well I feel as though someone else wrote it, the level of detail regarding John Puller’s character is different. There are also contradictory statements in the prose regarding his brother’s trial..Score: 3/5

The escapeTotally predictable. Spends an incredible amount of time on government acronyms.Score: 2/5

Always entertaining...But some of the action, as is too often the case, is a bit hard to believe..Score: 4/5

The EscapeVery good Book! Love the characters, very humanized. Love the Puller Brothers series..Score: 5/5

His worstI've read a few of Baldacci's stories and I've always truly enjoyed them - until now. I found these characters difficult to relate to and the entire story hard to follow and silly. I also found myself disgusted by his almost continuous use of the word "sucker". I'm no prude, I hear and have used words that are worse. But he used this word over and over and I found it totally inappropriate. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone..Score: 1/5

The EscapeA great read! The best of the John Puller series. Well done and highly recommended!.Score: 5/5

The EscapeGood but not as gripping as usual..Score: 4/5

Lots of Spies and surprisesThis book was an exciting look at the Army's biggest prison as well as the Puller family's test of faith. Several twists were refreshing and kept this from being just another military spy gone bad story. All of the characters were challenged and they had to work hard together to stay alive. Good follow up to books 1 and 2..Score: 4/5

EscapeA wonderful journey into the world of espionage. Each time you think you have a handle on just what is going on you reach another turn in the way things are really happening. Even at the conclusion of the book you are keep guessing at further events! Will eagerly await reading the author 's next book!.Score: 5/5

The escapeOne of the best convoluted stories by Baldacci it was sooo hard to put down....Wonderful!! Lmlisle.Score: 5/5

Terrific thrillerThe Escape will keep your heart rate up to the very end. Starts as a "what's going on here," continues as a "whodunit," and ends as a "so many good guys have been killed – who will survive?".Score: 5/5

The EscapeAnother great six star page turner from this author. Very complex plots and intrigues, but well worth the read if you are patient enough to follow along..Score: 5/5

Annoying female leadNot as bad as the first book in this series but not as good as the second. Did not like the lead female, so not necessary to the story. Will read the last in the series but not looking forward to the lead lady again. It is like the author cannot write for a female. This book was also to long, boring in spots..Score: 3/5

Baldacci's Best!I have read many of Baldacci's books and thoroughly enjoy them. Sometimes there is a slight degree of predictability. "The Escape" had a very complex plot with multiple twists & turns. The John Puller character is further strengthened in this third outing. I can hardly wait for the next episode..Score: 5/5

The Escape…escape from this readI really enjoy D. Baldacci’s books. I have read through almost every series. This book was frustrating. I could not get over my how annoying Knox’s character was throughout the whole book. Puller’s reactions and their back and forth was dumb and boring. And then she’s his person - like really?? Ugh! It makes me not want to read the next book, but I like to tie knots and finish series, so I will…but this was a big disappointment..Score: 2/5

The EscapeCould not put this book down, every chapter got better and better, great writer!.Score: 5/5

The EscapeRidiculously improbable "action," stiff and unrealistic characters spouting robotic dialogue, detailed recounting of downright impossible computer investigatory feats, and denouement depends entirely on a series of silly coincidences. Total waste of time (and I skimmed the last half) and $$ and my last Baldacci book..Score: 1/5

Good twists and turnsEnjoyed it very much..Score: 4/5

PULLER BROTHERSI was thrilled to see both brothers in action. John's brother's bit in both of the previous books is what stood out to me the most. Learning everything and seeing them both out in the field was exactly what I wanted from this book. The action was A+. This book didn't have as many twists as some of the author's other books. Overall I definitely enjoyed it..Score: 4/5
