From David Baldacci--the modern master of the thriller and #1 worldwide bestselling 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 Investigation 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod Zemke | 2/10/2014

    " A very good read. Baldacci writes too many books for them to be great, but still entertaining. Another plus for him, is that he does not keep writing the same book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen Walton | 2/8/2014

    " This book is darker than I expected from Baldacci, but it was still engaging if not my favorite of his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Krueger | 2/8/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pippin | 12/18/2013

    " He really had a hard time getting into the book and so did I. At page 200, the story finally began, seemed like the beginning was all prep for the story.....not his best book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vikas Barewar | 12/14/2013

    " amost similar to a hollywood movie.......... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Davecon | 11/20/2013

    " An ok mystery but I've enjoyed other Baldacci novels more. Perhaps it's just that I'm not a huge fan of mystery novels involving some gruesome murder and then an endless detective blow by blow account of the day to day search for the killer(s). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 10/23/2013

    " Excellent story set in the back country of West Virginia. Puller goes to rural West Virginia to solve the mystery of a murder, and runs into a lot more than he anticipated. Great read - holds your attention to the very end "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy Krulik | 9/26/2013

    " I loved the second book in this series so I went back to listen to the first-- this book. Not good. Baldacci could erase half of the material and give us a far better book. I gave it two stars because the storyline was at least somewhat entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 12/29/2012

    " I like Baldacci and this was a good story but took me longer than I like probably due to keeping up with the acronyms. The ending was a bit much but paved the way for further John Puller adventures. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alilam1 | 12/14/2012

    " This book does not make it to even close to the top of my favorite David Baldacci books. The story took way to long to develop. The story just felt too slow and drawn out for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 11/15/2012

    " Not a classic but a good page turner instead of watching TV; I really enjoy reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 10/31/2012

    " As with other Baldacci books, I got hooked quickly. Here we have Army combat veteran John Puller, a military investigator, sent to a small town in West Virginia to solve a murder. It turns out to be much more complicated - involving a possible nuclear bomb, multiple murders, etc. "
