When he arrives and starts digging he partners up with  Sam  who is the homicide  detective. As Puller and Sam investigate. The clues  reveal that one of them  are linked  to the crime.I gave this book 5 stars.  It's a page turner filled with surprises. I loved the suspense,  the characters  and the story line.

The Forgotten has a hint of mystery  to it.  When Puller arrives to Paradise  he learns that his Aunt died. although his aunt  was elderly. Puller belies that she was murdered.  Because of an letter that his aunt written. While Puller digs into his aunt's death. He learns that  there is more trouble in Paradise. I enjoyed this  book the most  because it has a urban touch. plus it reveals  an under world  that  I'm not familiar with but it is relevant  to the times. I like the charactersand their situations. This book  has a dash of everything suspense,  thrills,  action, and romance. although this is the second book in the series It can be read as a  stand alone.  I'm looking forward to reading  The Escape . Which is book 3 in the series.
