Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

David Baldacci is one of the world's most popular, widely read storytellers. In his blockbuster thrillers Zero Day and The Forgotten , he enthralled readers with John Puller. A combat veteran and special agent with the U.S. Army, Puller is the man they call to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. But all his training, all his experience, all his skills will not prepare him for his newest case, one that will force him to hunt down the most formidable and brilliant prey he has ever tracked: his own brother.<br> THE ESCAPE<br> 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.<br> John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason and national security crimes. 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.<br> 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.<br> 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.

"When John Puller's older brother Robert inexplicably escapes from the military's most secure prison, where he's being held for national security crimes, Puller finds himself part of an investigation to hunt down his own brother. As he digs more deeply into the case, Puller discovers troubling details about his brother's conviction and that someone is out there who doesn't want the truth to ever come out." --

Library Journal Review

Military investigator John Puller returns in his third compelling thriller (after Zero Day and The Forgotten), but this time the circumstances are personal. Puller's brother, Robert, rots away in an impregnable military prison after committing treason. A power outage inside the compound enables Robert to escape, a first in the facility's history. John, against all protocol, is tasked with finding out how his brother broke out without being seen and recapturing him. Teamed with another agent he cannot trust, Puller soon uncovers a vast conspiracy that leads to Robert's possible innocence. Can John stay alive long enough to prove it? Verdict Baldacci has written another amazing tale that will captivate his fans along with readers who just love great suspense. The surprises are frequent and the family dynamics compelling. This is the best one in the Puller series, and one of Baldacci's better novels, period. [See Prepub Alert, 5/12/14.]-Jeff Ayers, Seattle P.L. (c) Copyright 2014.
