    Ever since he was small, John Robison had longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits, an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes, had earned him the label "social deviant". No guidance came from his mother or his father. It was no wonder he gravitated to machines, which could, at least, be counted on.

    Anne says: "Refreshing!"
    "Fabulous"
    Overall

    Incredibly well written, fast moving, almost novel-like, this autobiography is well worth the read/listen. Especially helpful for anyone who is friend of family of an "Asbergian>"

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Steven L. Otis says: "There will be more of Puller ...."
    "Baldacci is copying Lee Child !!"

    Story
    What would have made Zero Day better?

    Baldacci's protagonist is exactly like a softer Reacher. He somehow knows the time of day all the time, armed services, very tall and very strong, walks into small town and saves the day.

    To make matters worse, the plot must have been written by a computer. Boy goes to small town, meets girl (cop), investigates strange murders, digs deeper, more murders, some heroics thrown in for laughs, discovers an absolutely unrealistic situation and then disarms a nuclear weapon with his girlfriend the cop.

    I stopped listening. What a waste of my time.

    I have read lots of baldacci. I always enjoyed them. Good characters, good plots. He has fallen off a cliff.
