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 . . .

Either Lee Child has been reading Baldacci or Baldacci has been reading Lee Child. This is a Jack Reacher like character with the name of Puller. All the way through the book I thought I was reading a Reacher story. I really do enjoy a Reacher story so Baldacci scores for me.
Definitely not one of his better books..almost a copy cat of a Jack Reacher novel...better left to Lee Child who does them well.
Great start with a new character
Excellent read and a great start with Puller.
I saw some resemblances to Jack Reacher and loved the differences!
Looking forward to the next one!
