John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative 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.

Gee, I never knew Jack Reacher had a twin brother.....or at least, a cousin who shared so many traits. Let's see.......Both have Military Law Enforcement background. Both are loners and men of few words. Both end up working a dangerous case in conjunction with the female head of the local law enforcement detachment. And both are romantically and sexually attracted to their female counterpart, yet don't take the first step (as in this case), or as sometimes happens with Reacher, gets involved.
This is not to say that I didn't enjoy this adventerous yarn. It's just that more often than not, I found myself reflecting that all literature is derivative.
Having said all this, I'd welcome any comments on my observations. By the way, I think the older brother deserved a pardon, or at least a new identitiy in the witness program and a release. But alas, as in real life, one is never guaranteed a happy ending.

First in John Puller series. My favorite of the three in series so far. Plot is interesting. John Puller is likeable and mystery surrounding his brother adds intrigue. Baldacci struggles to develop lifelike female characters but he creates a female lead in Zero Day with subtlety and nuance. Narrated by duo Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy who do a good job.

A very unusual and interesting story. I felt the ending was a bit weak after a book filled with action and suspense. Regardless of the weak ending, I would recommend it.

Another great book by David Baldacci. The story line and characters are very similiar to the Oliver Stone series, not sure why he decided to introduce another character ( John Puller ), but i liked it very much. Wish he would write another book in the Camel Club line....but this will satisfy until then.

I really liked this one. Great characters, interesting story and lots of action. 9 of 10 for me.

Its as though Baldacci was being paid by the word as apposed to writing a tight cohesive novel that I've grown accustomed to reading. The rest of this story is unnecessarily long and only the crisp ending raises this novel to 5 of 10 stars
