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.

Narrator and the fact that there is a male and a female...Love the Plot and the character..
Awesome read and good voice
Puller - Go Army
I love audible!!!
A must read! This book has it all and more. David keeps you interested through out the book. The charterers are rich with personal attitudes
I usually really like David Baldacci's books but this one came up short for me. It wasn't bad and I finished it with ease. I just didn't care for the dialog and circumstances that seemed too improbable. The main character, Jack, was very similar to the Jack Reacher character. Too similar. I will continue to read Baldacci's books.
i love Sci-Fi, and i hate capitalizing the letter i. it should be done automatically in this day and age. i hate boring books.
This is a Hollywood action movie in book form. Generally flat, predictable, and static. This could have been so much better. I might try one more from Baldacci....maybe.
Second series I read from Baldacci. For the story, I agree with other listeners. Some of the details or EXTRAORDINARILY annoying. I do not need to know the entire contents of his rucksack. Or, do I need to know the ratio of men to women of a bar he enters, and what they are wearing. I get it, the main character is detailed and observant. I had to listen an the highest speed to tolerate it. Once I got to chapter 9, it got better. Before that, rather painful. I would prefer for much less detail, just stick to the story.
Yes, he is a good writer, not great, but good. Prefer him when he is on sale.
The narration of just Ok. It's nice that they have a man and a women doing the narration. The annoying part was that most men sounded almost identical. The two brothers at least sounded different. If you are doing narration, come up with more voices.
Somewhat met my expectations.... Disappointing in spots. Some situations were redundant.
Ist experience in a long time audiobooks- appeared to drag at times.
The book reader did a good job of making the characters believeable and nailed the attitude of the main character.
At one point in the plot I was totally startled. So much startled that I jumped in my chair. Highly recommend this book.
