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.

    Actually not Deborah, but Donald. My wife opened the Amazon account and suddenly my Audible account became hers. I'm a basic 63 year old type guy who runs a lot and listnes to books as I run. It was a dark and stormy night ... but I still did 5 miles.

    Story
    "As the song goes..."Almost Heaven, West Virginia""

    First, I write few reviews, generally only if I like a book. I don’t enjoy complaining about an author or reader. So I don’t. You can sense the “but…” coming.

    But … I wonder if Baldacci ever visited WV? If he did he apparently felt condescending to the state. It seemed like an elitist’s attitude toward WV. I don’t live there, but travel to WV a lot. The ‘feel’ of this book about the people of WV is that they live dull depressing lives under a dark cloud of coal dust. He gives the impression it is a gray state with no joy. It is the few rich and almost enslaved common people…

    When I visit, I have found people of joy and beauty, and who have grace, common sense, and are intelligent.

    A stereotypical hero and an unfair stereotype of the people of WV.

    Baldacci has done better.

    Story
    "Good fill in til the next real Jack Reacher book"
    What did you love best about Zero Day?

    I like the Reacher series and this reads like it belongs there


    What other book might you compare Zero Day to and why?

    Could easily fit into the Reacher series


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Performance good but below that clipped delivery I've grown to like in the Reacher books


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Jack Reacher..John Puller. Really? I wonder how long until we get one staring Jim Lifter or Jonas Jumper. Both with brothers in distress, both with Army cop backgrounds. Still, until the next Reacher book,comes along its worth a credit, if you like the Reacher genre. Give it a listen.

    Story
    "Overproduce much?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really. This novel was excessively produced - two narrators (one to do male voices and the other to do female), sound effects like gunfire, and "suspenseful" canned music played during "action" or "danger" scenes. Music?! Please. We really need music to tell us John Puller is in danger? And bad music, at that?Trust your narrator to do his job without the extra bells and whistles and trust your audience to be smart enough to enjoy the story without them. I couldn't get into this book because just when things would start to get interesting I would wait for the music to end, or the gunfire to go away. I felt like there was very little chemistry between the two narrators and the story was very jumpy trying to switch between the two. It was so distracting I couldn't finish it, and I wasn't invested enough in the characters to get a text copy.


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

    When I stopped listening.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ?

    I think Ron McLarty would have been fine if they just would have left him alone.


    Any additional comments?

    I like David Baldacci but I really think this story is probably best experienced in a text version. I won't be getting the other series installments and I'm pretty disappointed.

    I love Baldacci and I certainly wasn't disappointed with this story line. I had to tell myself to turn my ipod off so I could get some work done! Puller is an exciting character.

    David Baldacci is becoming one of my favorite authors. I got every one of his Camel Club Series and enjoyed both the stories and the performance. I am now very pleased with the characters and performance of this book. Try it and I think you will find it a good story and listen.
