  • I read this as my introduction to Nelson DeMille years ago As a veteran, his take on the Army is quite accurate I like the balance of the mystery and the humor of the protagonist.As a West Point graduate with the second class to have women, I think he explored a subject that few are willing to get into.Where does the quest for power cross personal ethics How much is an officer willing to give up for rank With classmates commanding the 18th Airborne Corps at Ft Bragg and McChord Lewis in WA as th [...]

  • I can t recall the first time I read this book but I know I have read it in hardback, paperback and now Kindle And it is like being wrapped up in a soft warm blanket, okay a creepy blanket.This is a brilliant police procedural set on a military base in America in the early 90s Warrant Officer Paul Bremmer is already at the base investigating a plot to illegally sell military arms to baddies He is called to a scene of rape murder which is terrible and made worse when it is revealed the victim is [...]

  • Excellent mystery Kept me up late a few nights I figured out early on who killed the general s daughter, but DeMille did some skillful misdirecting to make me question my guess for a few hundred pages Sneaky devil Some of the characters here are depraved in a way I wouldn t expect from DeMille, but they serve his purpose He highlights some problems created by having males and females serving side by side in the military I loved the witty banter between investigators Paul Brenner and Cynthia Sunh [...]

  • Very enjoyable and entertaining book from beginning to end I am a big fan of Nelson DeMille and looking forward to reading of his work.

  • Excellent book Kept me up almost past midnight while reading every night, I just couldn t put it down It was a great who done it murder mystery, but also very true to life, with what goes on behind closed doors in the Military.Army Captain Ann Campbell, the young daughter of General Joe Campbell, is a West Point Graduate, and a very highly decorated soldier, until her body is found, naked and bound, on the firing range at Army Base Fort Hadley CID Criminal Investigation Department Officer and fo [...]

  • I have seen the movie so many times, that John Travolta as a rough and sarcastic military investigator Paul Brenner is burned into the back of my head And I really enjoyed the movie, and will watch it again for the 100th time.The book was great, and way way way better than the movie, even though I had Travolta s face in the back of my mind while reading it This is one of those books I stayed up reading way too late, lost track of time, and had that addictive quality too it.If I was to become a w [...]

  • What than a place around General s and to don t be somebody like a friend but to be a the daughter from this look to see what s the feeling to be in type of person and you father to be the general.

  • Maybe 3.5 stars .I thought it was good but I also thought it drug on a bit longer than it needed to in various places throughout the book When I look back on it after finishing, I think it kept rehashing plot points in places that didn t need it probably added 150 unnecessary pages or so.But, as I said, not bad in the long run.

  • Where have I been that I didn t know that this book existed or that it was made into a movie 10 years ago As others have mentioned, one of the benefits of the book club is the opportunity to read something I would not have sought out on my own Left to my own devices, I probably would have passed up this great murder mystery After settling into the book, I was captivated by the unfolding of the crime and the subsequent events that led up to the final who done it At times, however, I found the sub [...]

  • Nelson DeMille is such a great storyteller Set on an Army base in Georgia, convincing characters fill the pages to tell the story of THE GENERAL S DAUGHTER, her shocking secret life, murder and apparent sexual assault as her body is found naked, bound and staked to the ground no spoiler here Fast paced and full of sarcastic witty humor, Warrant Officer Paul Brenner and Rape Specialist Cynthia Sunhill s officious investigative techniques to uncover the truth surrounding Captain Ann Campbell s dem [...]

  • The General s Daughter is a good crime fiction novel, but it s a straight forward whodunit that doesn t have the humour and quirkiness of DeMille s John Corey series Much like TV s JAG, The General s Daughter is about an army investigation into the murder of one of its own, in this case the general s daughter The story is well written and is engaging, but the characters are not as fleshed out as in the Corey series.

  • Spoiler Alert Do Not Read before you read the book.Colonel Wm Kent, post provost marshal, never actually confesses He just blows his brains out My spouse Jeff doesn t at all agree with me, but I still wonder if the true killer was Mrs Kent Was he protecting his wife Taking the blame After all, he had caused quite a bit of unhappiness and misery in their marriage I thought DeMille gave a good hint that this could be so Maybe I ll ask him Favorite quote, page 352 Ann Campbell it s a human tragedy [...]

  • Read this years and years ago and loved it But I don t think I five star loved it, you know what I mean But it was good.

  • This all takes place in a military context While I m not a military person, I though this was a terrific book, very well written There s no question that DeMille rewrites and rewrites until he gets it right Many, many, wonderful one liners I wish I was able to add all the dry humor that the narrator uses The story seems titillating at first a beautiful woman and her secret sex life But it s far deeper and satisfying and Army investigator Paul Brenner and his psychologist companion, with whom he [...]

  • I ve watched the movie based on Nelson DeMille s The General s Daughter many times, but until recently I never had the chance to read it I was eager to do so, since I am the author of a mystery novel also involving with a military criminal investigator and some of the same themes DeMille covers in this mystery novel.In The General s Daughter, Paul Brenner, an investigator with the U.S Army Criminal Investigation Division, is working undercover at a fictitious Army base in Georgia when he is draw [...]

  • I m not going to lie I read this book because of the movie and wanted to compare the two The movie centered a lot on Paul Brenner and it actually showed Brenner and the General s daughter actually meeting when that didn t happen in the book The only thing that s similar is the actual case but a lot of the things that happened in the movie didn t really happen in the book.The book was a really fast read The General s daughter was found murdered early in the morning and it s up to Paul Brenner and [...]

  • This was the very firstNelson DeMille novel that I ever read It s also the only of one of his books to this point to have been made into a feature film.Paul Brenner is a JAG type military investigator dispatched to an army base the fictional Fort Hadley to investigate a murder The victim is Ann Campbell, who is found naked, bound and gagged on the base s firing range Campbell was an up and coming soldier, the poster child for the new army, and daughter of Fort Hadley s general Brenner quickly di [...]

  • Nelson DeMille s writing is top notch It s so tight that I got hooked on the first three pages of The General s Daughter He weaves a tale so intricate, that the reader hasn t a clue where it s going or how it will evolve The protagonist is Paul Brenner, an officer in the Army s Criminal Investigation Division While undercover thwarting an illegal sale of weapons to Colombian drug cartel types, he is called in to determine how Ann Campbell, the general s talented daughter and an Army captain, cam [...]

  • Five stars and some One of the best mystery procedurals book ever read It offers a greatly balanced and tasty mix of cop story, psycological analysys, fun, grieve a.s.o contained in 400 pages I loved the first person POV by Paul Brenner that resebmles too much to John Corey, or vice versa because of the timing of Demille publishing and I loved how a good writer can set up a crime story without involving too much action, guns, blood and exaggerations Notwithstanding 23 years have passed since thi [...]

  • Paul Brenner basically works for the Army s version of IAB He is asked to work on a sensitive case The general s daughter was killed She was found naked, spread eagle in the rifle range, staked to tent pegs In addition to the delicate nature of the crime, Brenner has to partner up with an ex lover Together, they work on the case, slowly uncovering the truths hidden by an entire military base, and then someThe story was good, but I found the writing a little long winded I almost put the book down [...]

  • I have read about 7 of Nelson Demille s books and this ranks at the top of them It s a fast paced murder mystery Compared to his other book to some of his other series the John Corey and Stanhope Sutter , you can understand why they made this book into a movie Nelson uses extensive research when before he writes a novel and you can tell that he does because of all the intricate details usually too much in his novels However, there aren t too many times in this book, if any, that make you feel as [...]

  • This much touted book is certainly engaging The author s introduction makes it clear that it is intended to explore the role of women in the modern military, particularly as relates to how sexual misconduct is handled While it does that on the face of it, it s a clumsy treatment of these issues Some of the characters were interesting, but most were two dimensional, cartoonish The plot has some twists that work, but others that are quite predictable I am not motivated to see the movie, but might [...]

  • I would note this as a 2 star just ok but that would reflect the fact that I had an old library copy of the audio book CD s, and there were a lot of scratches and heat damage to the last few tracks on each disc.As far as the book goes, I was intrigued and interested in finding out who the killer was, but I was far from sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next thing to happen I know very little about military protocols and treatment of different kinds of officers, so that was interest [...]

  • I am so glad that I read this book before I saw the movie, as it was so much better The story is about the body of a girl who is found bound and naked on the firing range of an army base To make matters worse she is the daughter of The General The case is passed on to Paul Brenner and Cynthia Sunhill who have to try and solve it without going outside of the armies rules and regulations This becomes quite difficult when they stumble across corruption and the daughters secret life The book moves a [...]

  • Well, it only took me about 9 months to finish this book I do enjoy Nelson DeMille, but this one dragged on for me I suppose there were just too many other books getting in the way If you like a good mystery with adult themes and a military backdrop, this book is for you The author draws very vivid images and I could see the whole story play out in my mind s eye like a movie in fact it was made into a movie with John Travolta starring as the General I think you can get it for free on Netflix.
