"FBI Agent Atlee Pine's search for her sister Mercy clashes with military investigator John Puller's high-stakes case, leading them both deep into a global conspiracy--from which neither of them will escape unscathed. For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end her investigation into Mercy's disappearance, she finally gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her sister's kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo. With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum race to Vincenzo's last known location in Trenton, New Jersey--and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller's case, blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving a military installation. Stunningly, Pine and Puller's joint investigation uncovers a connection between Vincenzo's family and a breathtaking scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy. Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy. And that truth will shock Pine to her very core."--Amazon.

David Baldacci's DAYLIGHT is a another great read. This is the 3rd book in his Atlee Pine series. As with the other two, the story is something of a double helix. FBI duties related to her job as an agent, entwined with her never ending search for her twin sister who was kidnapped when they were young girls. This novel has an added attraction in that her search for her sister crosses paths with an Army CID investigation of drug dealing on an Army base - which turns out to be a much bigger investigation into things way beyond drugs on one base. So she teams up once again with Army CWO John Puller (4 Baldacci books in that series) and they help each other out with their separate investigations. No other spoilers from me other than Pine makes some strategic leaps forward in finding her sister - that at the end of this book, she has once again hit a brick wall.

I couldn't get into this book at all. in the beginning all I could think was, Enough already. Just give up and move on. Also I thought it was unrealistic that the FBI was giving Attlee so much time to conduct the search for Mercy. The only redeeming feature was that John Puller was in the book too. However, as the book progressed, it got better and the ending though not plausible is indeed possible and paves the way for yet another book in this series.

This is an excellent read. I loved the combining of the Atlee Pine and John Puller protagonists. The twists and turns will keep one moving along. Great book.

Really enjoy the combination of Atlee Pine and Puller (characters from two different series). They work well together and make for a intriguing storyline. Throw in 2 apparently different storylines and find a way to meld them together makes for one interesting drama. It constantly kept me guessing. Just when Pine and Puller seemed to get somewhere, the rug gets pulled from under them. I liked the way they found a way to "win". When the 2 storylines were pulled apart at the very end, it was kind of a let down but a great read.

I would echo bgibson's comments. The first two Atlee Pine books were good. This third one, still on the search for twin Mercy, is cluttered with a unbelievable plot. The search for Mercy seems to have gotten lost in the process.
Recommend "cheating" and going to near the end of the book where it goes back to the search for Mercy and provides a pretty good summary.
I found this third book not worth the trouble to read and a big disappointment.

Ugh. The core storyline of Pine searching for her sister holds together well, and I've enjoyed the earlier Puller series. However, the story that brings Pine and Puller together is too far a stretch for me. That aspects just falls into the category of grand conspiracy where the conspirators aren't terribly bright and it's a wonder they pulled it off at all.

This is by far my favorite novel in this series, and one of the best of David Baldacci's novels. The author ties multiple stories of chasing drug dealers doing business out of Fort Dix, an Army base, high level corruption in the federal government, blackmail, multiple murders, and FBI agent Atlee Pine still trying to track down information that will lead her to her twin sister, Mercy, and possibly her mother. Throw in military investigator John Puller and his brother and you end up with a book that is really hard to put down. I thought the interaction between Atlee Pine and John Puller - leads of different series of Baldacci books was much better done than his previous book where he tried to create interaction between John Puller and Amos Decker, which just simply didn't work. In this book, both characters are very driven to "get their man" and can definitely "kick ass and take names." The case links between the two seemed a little bit gray but I still thought the overall story was well done.
