Description

Combat veteran and U. S. Army investigator John Puller is on the hunt for justice with the help of a homicide detective--but as they face deceptions and dead ends, a powerful force threatens to stop them forever in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

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.

    I have read many of Baldacci's books and loved them, the many twists and turns. About the time you think you have it figured out, you find something new. Although I enjoyed this book, I didn't find it to be as intriguing as his other books. I will read more with Puller as the,aim character since I do enjoy his adventures.
  • Great reading!

    David Baldacci introduces us to John Puller in Zero Hour. This guy, a CID agent, could be exchanged easily for Lee Child's Jack Reacher. Any fan of Reacher will feel right at home following Puller through this escapade. The remote location in West Virginia is a Reacher kind of place and the interaction with the locals is also typical. Even the rough action and problem solving methods are what you would expect from one of the Army's finest. This is a great story from a great writer and I hope we get pulled into more Puller adventures in the future!!

    The Puller character is gonna be compared to Jack Reacher. That's just the way it is. And there are a lot of moments that feel like its Jack Reacher. But once you're past that you'll find a good book. Baldacci is a better writer than Lee Child. He does much better research. The weapons and military facts and military life were much much more accurate than the constant errors in a Reacher book. It's easier to get into the story because of that realism. You'd be surprised how distracting it is when a writer constantly misstates the number of rounds a handgun takes. Things like that don't happen here. Add in the superior storytelling and its a good time. I'd like to see how the character will develop over a few books.
  • Great action packed story

    I loved reading another John Puller story! This was hard to put down and stop reading to attend to everyday life. The story kept you guessing and in the end gave you all the details you crave. I hope there will be more stories about John Puller.
