Zero Day is the explosive first instalment in David Baldacci's thrilling John Puller series.

Distinguished as a top investigator in the US government, John Puller is called in to conduct an enquiry into the brutal murders of a family in a remote area of West Virginia. It soon becomes clear that the case has wider implications and as the body count rises he teams up with local homicide detective Samantha Cole. As the web of deceit is revealed, it quickly becomes apparent that there's much more to this case than they had first thought. It is an investigation where nothing is as it seems, and nothing can be taken at face value.

When Puller and Cole discover a dangerous situation in the making, Puller finds he must turn to the one person who can help avert certain catastrophe. A person he has known all his life.

In a breathtaking rollercoaster race against time, Cole fears for the community in which she was raised, and Puller knows he has to overcome the enemies of his country to avoid far reaching disaster.

But in the end, you can't kill what you can't see is coming . . .

    Anything I read by this man is exciting, fast moving and a fantastic yarn. "Zero Day" has been another classic Baldacci. X
  • Jack Reacher rip-off. And not a good one.

    By iPaddler2011
    Author clearly read the Lee Child novels and thought "I can do that". Turns out, he can't. This has to be the driest, least compelling copy-cat drivel I've ever read. Didn't buy the characters, the plot or the dialogue / monologues. 1 dimensional and cringeworthy.

    Really good read. Well written unpredictable end!
  • Slow, followed by slow......

    By IanCat
    Gave up on this after 230 pages of binary, monochrome dialogue between the hero who is soooooo obviously a Jack Reacher wannabe and a variety of stereotypical small town hicks and military and security types. No pace, not a single original character and its only redeeming factor is it makes a great sleeping aid.
  • Gripping

    By delzerz
    Baldicci knits the characters into a pattern of gripping intrigue, with the reader not knowing which direction you are being taken, but willing to be taken nonetheless. The final 25% of this terrific novel hides a thrilling climax, every word on every page a magnet to the reader. Good over evil triumphing, or something more meaningful? I'll let you decide. The local cop Sam Cole 'red threads' the story line right to the end. A great read. I am privileged to have traveled the journey. Derek Williamson
