Publisher's Summary

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. And Zero Day is where it all begins....

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.

Now, Puller is called out on a case in a remote, rural area in West Virginia coal country, far from any military outpost. Someone has stumbled onto a brutal crime scene, a family slaughtered. The local homicide detective, a headstrong woman with personal demons of her own, joins forces with Puller in the investigation. As Puller digs through deception after deception, he realizes that absolutely nothing he's seen in this small town, and no one in it, are what they seem. Facing a potential conspiracy that reaches far beyond the hills of West Virginia, he is one man on the hunt for justice against an overwhelming force.

David Baldacci is one of the world's favorite storytellers. His books are published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, with over 110 million copies in print. He is also the cofounder, along with his wife, of the Wish You Well Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting literacy efforts across America. Still a resident of his native Virginia, he invites you to visit him at www.DavidBaldacci.com and his foundation at www.WishYouWellFoundation.org, and to look into its program to spread books across America at www.FeedingBodyandMind.com.

    Story
    "As always, feels slow"

    The narrator speaks a bit slow, and it is in some way taking the tempo of the Baldacci books down. But it might be the best way to get the atmosphere of the remote villages he likes. I really like the way you feel you get to know the places and people, but compared to the other action thrillers, Baldacci is slow moving.

    Story starts off interesting, and accelerates all the way, with a cooldown after the major action half an hour before finish.

    I enjoy the Baldacci books, they feel a lot deeper than Brad Thor or Vince Flynn.

    What made the experience of listening to Zero Day the most enjoyable?

    This was my first book by David Baldacci, but it won't be the last. I was sick and out of work and listined to over 1/2 of the book in one day. Then I finished it the next.

    There was no time that I lost interest in the story.

    I am a retired high school computer teacher. After years of tech reading, I have given up reading for listening while I woodworking.

    Story
    "Excellent story, great narration."
    If you could sum up Zero Day in three words, what would they be?

    Great surprise ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sam Cole. She was a small-town cop who had to deal with the interference of military cops on her turf. She handled it with class and sass.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    I can't choose-both are outstanding!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending took me by surprise and that's saying a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    My only disappointment is that all of Baldacci's protagonists are basically the same character. John Puller is just a younger version of Oliver Stone. Great story, but not a lot of imagination regarding main character's background as a military operative.

    "Fantastic Book and Great New Character"
    Where does Zero Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the top. I would listen to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Day?

    There wasn't a single moment. It was just the overall character of John Puller. He was expertly done and is very memorable and now one of my favorite characters along with Mitch Rapp and Odd Thomas.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Many and this is up there with his best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    John's honor

    "Zero Day a good listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Zero Day the most enjoyable?

    The fact that there were 2 voices reading the book made it more realistic than a single reader trying to emulate multiple voices.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot was interesting - lots of twists and turns - good action and the guilty party difficult to pick out.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not heard them before.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction - plot was interesting enough that I kept coming back to it - only listened on trips to work and when walking so no long stretches of listening.
