In a nutshell


Ten people have been selected to beta test a ground breaking piece of spyware. Pioneered by tech wunderkid Cy Baxter, Fusion can track anyone wherever they are on earth. But does it work?

Each participant has two hours to go zero which means go off the grid and disappear. There on, for thirty days they must elude the highly sophisticated capture teams sent to find them. Any zero that beats fusion wins $3 million in cash. If Fusion prevails, Cy wins a $90 billion contract with the CIA.

For Kaitlyn Day, the stakes are higher than money. She needs to win to get what she wants but Cy will stop at nothing to realize his ambitions. When the timer hits zero there can be only one winner.

Book Club Notes


Wow. That was my reaction when I read the synopsis on the back jacket. I can’t recall a book that I’ve been this excited to read. The plot sounded intensely interesting, thrilling, captivating, different and wow again – the actual book didn’t disappoint.

This is possibly the best fiction back jacket description I have ever read. Not only did it pull me in but it described the book perfectly. From page one the action starts, you aren’t waiting for what was promised to arrive and it doesn’t under or over sell it.

The plot is excellent, the characters complex, the storytelling layered and accelerating and the twists cunning. It has everything you want from a great thrilling novel. Suspense, action, drama and mystery at its best – and it’s written well. Best novel I have read in a while. Welcome to the best books of 2023 list.
