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.

    I enjoy fiction including Sci Fi and fantasy (lots of epic fantasy.) I'm also a big fan of some of the spy genre like the Bourne series and some Tom Clancy.

    "Getting a bit tired are we?"
    What would have made Zero Day better?

    I feel like it was an attempt to take on the Jack Reacher series. Kind of an unbelievable main character in John Puller. Army CID is not a place for seasoned career combat veterans who just don't want to move up because they like where they are. They are not hard core special forces trained baddies. They are investigators with sharp minds and a notebook. They don't carry MP5 submachine guns everywhere they go and tactical gear to take on an enemy force when on deployment in the US. I just found it overall to be unrealistic and too sensationalized.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I tend to go for historical fiction, military fiction and fantasy fiction series. This book is right in line with the type of book I go for but Baldacci should have left the overused uber-fighting machine rambo-killer of a main chracter behind and invented something interesting and compelling.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the interview processes he went through. The investigative portions. It flew threw them but I think that was the only thing that held the plot together.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disbelief and a lot of eye rolling.


    Any additional comments?

    The story sets up well for follow-up books. Sadly I won't be bothering with them because it will be more of the same.

    "Captivating, 4 plus"

    The story is interesting and kept my attention. The military detail appears genuine to this non-military listener. The character development is three dimensional. And lastly, the narrators allow one to pay attention to the story rather than distract the listener, which to me is the mark of great narration.

    "More Puller, Please!"

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat. Lots of action with the tiny possibility of some romance.

    Narrators are definitely on point and are two of my favorites. Can't wait for another John Puller book!

    "A Fun Adventure"

    I enjoyed listening to the story. As an eight year Army veteran and life-long Army Brat, I can relate to the protagonist. Thankfully the author is able to communicate Army-speak well.

    Story
    "Wow! I am love with John Puller!"

    I read them out of order; 2nd book, The Forgotten, I read first and loved Baldacci's new character, John Puller. Then when I read the synopsis for his new book, The Escape, about his brother Bobby, I had to read it as well. Couldn't wait to read his story of treason and escape from the inescapable prison. Next I read all the controversy about his first book of the series, Zero Day being a copycat of Lee Childs! Well that's just silly when you follow this thrilling well thought out series. I just finished it and I give the books all 5 star reviews! I highly recommend this new series and can't wait to see what the Puller men pull off next. ;-)

    "Disappointing"

    Superman in uniform... Always being superior, always the best in the room, always perfect... Small talk seems forced, dialogue trivial, over all story line mostly ridiculous.... I think I might rather have listened to golf on the radio!

    I've listened to a lot of this writers books and generally consider him to be one of the better writers, but this book I had to force myself to finish...

    I would not recommend this one to anyone.

    Really enjoyed Zero Day.
    Having two narrators was a nice surprise and really added to the enjoyment of the book.

    "A WINNER!"

    I could not get over how TERRIFIC the narration was. Have forgotten what a GREAT team of readers can do with a book. Plus I really enjoyed the story. Usually you have some idea of what is going to happen next --- but not here! And the characters have more depth and complexity than one usually finds in this genre. Can't wait to read the next two.
