Annotation:
When John Puller of the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division gets sent to investigate a quadruple homicide in West Virginia, he quickly comes to believe there is a lot more to the story than he's being told. What he does know is horrifying enough--an army officer, his wife (who worked for a Pentagon contractor), and their two teenage daughters were slaughtered in their small-town home. From the beginning, Puller's supervisors seem to be simultaneously undermining and overly interested in his investigation. Meanwhile, the locals, with the exception of one female police officer, do not trust Puller, complicating his efforts to get to the truth. Best-selling author Baldacci knows how to ramp up the anticipation in the suspenseful ZERO DAY, and he harnesses the concerns of the post-9/11 moment in America to amplify the tension of his hero's investigation.
Author Bio
David Baldacci
It's rare that former presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush agree on anything, but both have publically proclaimed themselves fans of the bestselling novels of David Baldacci. Born (in 1960) and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Baldacci majored in political science at Virginia Commonwealth University before getting his law degree from the University of Virginia. He then practiced law in Washington D.C. for almost a decade, all the while trying to ignite his writing career by submitting short stories to various journals and publishers. After collecting rejection notices for several years, most people would likely surrender their dreams in frustration, but Baldacci decided to dive even deeper into his writing career by penning a novel, which eventually became the instant bestseller ABSOLUTE POWER. This remarkable debut showcases all of the literary stylings and plot elements that Baldacci has become best known for--sharply drawn characters testing their own morality as they become engaged in various levels of political intrigue. Several of his books document the high-stakes adventures of the Camel Club, a group of four political watchdogs who expose and undermine governmental conspiracies. While Baldacci's thrillers have become mainstays on bestseller lists worldwide, he has refused to settle into a niche churning out a formulaic series, instead exploring other genres in his critically-acclaimed books THE CHRISTMAS TRAIN and WISH YOU WELL. He is also a prominent philanthropist and, in 2002, Baldacci and his wife Michelle created the Wish You Well Foundation, a renowned charitable supporter of literacy programs.
