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.

The story was a great read and beautifully written and executed. The narrators were engaging and brought the story to life. I loved the chapter ending suspenseful sound effects and the climactic build. I would recommend to anyone.
Weak storyline weak dialogue one-dimensional stereotypical characters... Implausible plot.. save your money. . I've never left a negative review, but this book just didn't do it for me. At all.
I couldn't stop listening once the story unfolded. Very intense. The performance by both female and male orators was excellent. Also, the music added to the experience.
This will keep your attention until the end. Puller is a dynamic character. Great book.
Good story with thoroughly developed characters, exciting & interesting storyline & the best narration. Totally enjoyed every moment of this listen. A well spent credit!
