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.

    "Entertaining listen"

    This was my first listen of David Baldacci and I really enjoyed it.

    Puller is an interesting character and I would like to listen to more of his story.

    The narration is superb. I was a bit hesitant about listening to 2 different narrators however it was seamless and works much better than I imagined. The background music also worked really well to add to the suspense.

    Story
    "Not Jack Reacher, but close"
    Where does Zero Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the upper third


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Very complex and compelling plot


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    Puller


    Any additional comments?

    Like all good mysteries the clues were there if you were sharp. Main character has just enough "Dirty Harry" in him to make him dangerous.

    "Excellent story."
    Where does Zero Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This novel is among my top 20 favorites. I will probably listen more than once.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Puller is a character I'm looking forward to in future novels. He has a strong resemblance to my favorite Lee Child's Jack Reacher.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first and enjoyed the 2 narrators very much. ( 2 narrators is also a first for me).


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Secrets in West Virginia.

    Story
    "Held my interest throughout!"

    This is an exciting, well paced story, one that never lagged or had a dull moment. The main character, Puller, is impressive and appealing, though sometimes almost too perfect. The supporting characters are realistic and always interesting. The plot was suspenseful and the ending for the most part was satisfying. I was anxious to get to the end of the story so that all would be revealed. Yet I was sorry when the book was over! As for the few negatives: It did seem odd that the government would send Puller in solo to investigate the ominous events in Drake, West Virginia. The author's explanations for Puller's continuing lack of backup didn't entirely work for me, especially at the climax of the story, when additional expert assistance clearly would have been provided if the scenario had been real. The narrators were both excellent, except that Ron McLarty sounds a bit further along in years than the Puller character should. McLarty is a talented actor and narrator. I liked his narration except for the audible age discrepancy.

    "Awesome Intro to Puller"

    This story was fantastic and left me wanting to listen to the next story in the series ASAP! The voice acting was also excellent.
