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
    "Okay, but not great."
    Would you listen to Zero Day again? Why?

    No, definitely wouldn't. It's a story, where you want to know the who-did-it, but it's not written in a way that makes you want to listen over and over


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ummm, nothing stood out. It was just a story. There is an irritating "know it all" factor about the main investigator, constantly referring to "in the army this" or in the army we ..." and it was a put off. I had read other reviews about the main character having the too perfect feel, and I totally got that.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator couldn't do voices at ALL. The feeling of audio theatre was annoying at first, but once I realised that the narrator couldn't do voices, just read through like the text, it was obvious that a woman's voice was impossible. At times, you couldn't tell when it was the character talking, and when it was them thinking, or back into the story. That was really poor in my opinion. There was music at random times, which isn't really the narrators fault, but it wasn't an epic book, so seemed pretty stupid.


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

    No, it's narrated in a clinical way, following process, etc, so emotion wasn't really involved.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't a bad book, and the narration wasn't so bad that I felt I had to return it out of frustration, it just feels adequate. I wouldn't bother reading any more about this character, if there are any follow up stories, and the narrator would be a no-go for me.

    "Very good at entertaining"

    Very good and entertaining. I'm going to go out to the second book. Seems like it could've been a little better. The end was a little week I thought.

    "Wow"

    Another great one. All his books are good. Good character development. The narrator is my favorite voice adding the female voice makes it even better.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    "Good story, action packed!"
    What made the experience of listening to Zero Day the most enjoyable?

    Good narration, fast paced.. good listening book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It kept you wanting to continue to find out how he solves the case. Least interesting is the comparison to Lee Child's "Jack Reacher". Having read Reacher, this feels like a rip off.


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

    *Spoiler* Sad that Sam died. Some parts are really implausible.. like his backpack with all the stuff you need to defuse a nuke,, and surviving a nuclear blast, hurled 100 feet in the air.. really? Try doing that.. no shattered bones, or crushed skull? really..


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the other books go on sale. Then I will buy them, or recommend them.

    "Super read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Zero Day to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed this greatly. It was a read that kept me guessing and gave a surprise. How good is that?

    "Very good listen!"

    I thought this book was very good. I am getting use to the multiple narrators and found this reading to be very enjoyable. The extra sound effects were ok, they did tend to have an effect on me late at night as I listened when everyone else was asleep. I felt it had enough twist in the plot to keep you guessing as to what was really going on.
    The story kept me engaged all the way through and I look forward to reading more of John Puller.

    "Good story line"

    Very detailed characters. Sometimes so much so that the story was slow moving and hard to follow. The "he said", "she said" got a little monotonous and the character voices sounded too much the same at times. Over all it was a good listen and just enough suspense to keep me interested to the end but I believe the story could've been told with a few less chapters.
