Loved the book. Unfortunately, "HARSTAN" strikes again and writes a review that gives everything away. You know those people who watch a good movie, convince you to go see it yourself, but not before telling you how it all ends? Well, thats good ole "HARSTAN" for you. EVERY review this person writes (and there are MANY) gives away the best parts of the book before anyone has a chance to read it themselves. May I be so bold as to suggest that "HARSTAN" go to the apps and purchase a journal? That way you can write and write and write and write and STOP with the annoying reviews. Like I said, great book, tired of "HARSTAN" reviews.

Baldacci did it! Zero day has all the elements needed for it to be a success. Thriller, suspense and mystery all in one book! Very worth your buy.

Not one of his best but a decent book. It reminded me of the Lee Child - Jack Reacher series.

This is the best book I've read in some time, and I'm an avid reader! Hopefully we will read more about Puller!

I couldn't believe this book. I like Lee Child's character Jack Reacher. This book was so similar it was a bit frustrating. Strange for Baldacci.

If you are looking for a book to help you get to sleep at night, don't start "Zero Day"! This book will keep you up all night! David Baldacci is always a good read, but his new character, CID Special Agent Puller, has a typical dysfunctional family to keep track of, along with dead bodies that just keep multiplying! This is one good read and is a great lead in to the next Agent Puller book in "The Forgotten".

I have read every Baldacci book and i am a huge fan. This book was very entertaining in general and i loved the plot idea. However after reading his last book (The sixth man) i felt this one was not as good.

As much as I love David Baldacci and all his books, this one had me checking the author. As another reviewer said: Did Lee Child write this. The hero of the piece certainly reminded you of Reacher and I did actually check to see who's book I was reading. It was a good book, but not as good as usual and, sorry to say, it seemed a rip-off of Lee Child's books.

John Puller --- Jack Reacher --- really? Don't do this again, ever.

Really enjoyed this book. Great story. Relevant, creative, and kept me engaged and wanting more. Completed book in 3 sessions. I would like to see a series involving the main character.

There has to be a conspiracy with Lee Child and Baldacci with this book. Maybe Mr. B needed a story and Lee had one saved up, or maybe they are drinking buddies and decided it would be good fun to share a character. The protagonist is EXACTLY like Reacher - (maybe as a sequel he and Reacher could meet up in some remote town where things are SO bad that they need 2 Reachers instead of just one to straighten it out!!) Because I like the Reacher books so much, this one is enjoyable, but as others reviewers noted, not as strong as the Child books - and it's just incomprehensible that there could be such a glaring similarity without some kind of agreement between the two authors. When stuff like this happens in music, people soemtimes end up in courtrooms.

But, just like a bunch of other reviewers, I had to keep looking at the cover to make sure it wasn't a Jack Reacher story. I mean, Puller's history is almost exactly like Reacher's, so much so that I was waiting to reach that his father married a French woman. I am not all the way through the book, and I am finding it hard to read. It is definitely not at the same level as Baldacci's other work or as Lee Child's Reacher stories.

Once again a fantastic book from this author. The characters were fantastic. David Baldacci never disappoints!

fast paced and exciting. My biggest negative is that John Puller is a direct ripoff of Jack Reacher. The name, the career, the father, the physical attributes...

This is a great book. There are many books that have complicated plots, too many characters and jumpy timelines. Baldacci gets the recipe just right. I felt like I was really a part of the story. Exciting, but realistic action on every page and ends with a bang. You will not be sorry for picking this book to read.

U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division Warrant Officer John Puller, Jr. visits his brother Robert, a nuclear scientist convicted of treason at the US Disciplinary Barracks, but his sibling refuses to answer whether he did it or not. Their father the famous Army hero would like to believe his oldest son did not betray his country. At Quantico, Puller's Special Agent in Charge Don White assigns the Warrant Officer to investigate the murder of Defense Intelligence Agency Colonel Matthew Reynolds in Drake, West Virginia. The officer worked at the Pentagon, but what disturbs Puller is the DIA should be making the inquiry into the murder of the colonel, his wife and two teenage children in their rural home. He makes contact with Sergeant Samantha Cole, the civilian homicide detective investigating the mass murders, but she considers him an unwanted outsider and acts accordingly towards cooperative Puller. This is a superb police procedural filled with a twist that takes a local rural homicide investigation spinning it into international waters as only David Baldacci can do and make it feel real. Puller is terrific as the agent holding the story line together. Readers will relish this fast-paced thriller as Zero Day has come to West Virginia and other nearby states. Harriet Klausner

If you know Jack Reacher, MEET John Puller, Jr. After the Tom Cruise corruption of Jack Reacher, I have a new found match. . . .this is a great read. Though it is tough to replace Reacher, from now on every time I read Reacher novels, I will be picturing Tom F'n 5' 8" Cruise.

I've really enjoyed Baldacci's other books but this one seemed like a thinly disguised ripoff of the Jack Reacher character.

Have read of few of Baldacci’s books and I liked the Forgotten (#2 Puller) better than (#1 Puller) Zero Day. I listed to both on audio and enjoy sound effects and the narrators Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy made the novel very interesting. Again war hero, John Puller is the top investigator in the US Army CID. As in Forgotten he is called to work the case after someone is brutally murdered in a remote area of West Virginia. As usual, upon his investigation, there is more than meets the eye and teams up with local homicide detective Sam Cole. There are secrets of the past and deceit surfaces. Without giving up the ending-- A shocking conclusion of family and justice and how to make things right – A fast-paced book with battles between good and evil.
