When an ominous, digitally encrypted telephone call is intercepted by the NSA's spy satellites high over Switzerland, FBI Special Agent Sarah Cahill - irreverent, outspoken, a brilliant counterterrorism expert, a divorced mother of an eight-year-old boy - is urgently summoned to New York to investigate an imminent terrorist attack on lower Manhattan. Her investigation immediately turns into the desperate pursuit of a highly sophisticated and charismatic terrorist operative, known only by the code name Zero.

Sarah must direct an intensive, absolutely secret manhunt for an exceptionally dangerous man whose identity she doesn't know - even though he knows her intimately. Suddenly, Sarah and her young son are plunged headlong into a terrifying labyrinth of intrigue, an elaborate game of cat and mouse that imperils their lives, forcing Sarah to race to uncover a diabolically clever terrorist conspiracy... before the zero hour.

The audio includes an excerpt from Vanished, the first Nick Heller novel.

Listener Opinions

    " I liked the story but the way it was written didn't suck me in like some of the better books I've read, including more recent ones by Finder. The backdrop to the story is a terror plot aimed at crippling Wall Street, physically with a bomb and cyber-wise by wreaking havoc with computer system at the hub for global transfer of funds. About halfway through the pace picks up, it was just a struggle for me to get to that point. "

    " Great story, fast moving, suspense and mystery. The villian, aka terrorist, is in some strange way actually likable. There were times when I felt he was not going to be captured; mostly because he was broken out of a maximum security prison where he was serving a life sentence. I was seeing a sequel because he was so good at his job. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Page | 1/27/2014

    " I have now read all of Finders novels except the first two as they are as of yet not available in e-book editions. This is his third, originally published in 1996, and IMHO the best of his that I have read. It revolves around the desperate attempt to find and stop a terrorist attack by a paid assassin; reminiscent of Forsyth's "Day of the Jackal". "

    " First book I've read by him...will try another ~ good FBI characters, etc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lablover | 12/24/2013

    " The person who recommended it said it was a suspense novel. Half way through the novel I was still waiting for the suspense to start. Actually I was still waiting for the story to really get going. Kind of a snoozer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alison Packard | 12/18/2013

    " Although I love Joseph Finder's books, I think that reading this so long after the publication date really hindered my enjoyment of it. This book was written well before 9/11 and seemed very dated. However this will not stop me from buying any of Mr. Finder's future efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 12/12/2013

    " i liked this book maybe not as much as others by this author but in my estimation it was still worth three stars. a good plot twists and turns and i think good characters. it just seems to lack something but it is still a book that i would recomend.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell Brooks | 9/14/2013

    " This was the first novel I read from Joseph Finder. Just like his other books, it was well written and full of suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skrett | 9/8/2013

    " Almost a Nelson DeMille style novel. I am about a third of the way into the book, good one! "

    " terrific thriller. getting to like finder a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 5/17/2013

    " Another page turner from Joe Finder. It was good to backtrack to this earlier book. It still has legs. Set in pre 9/11 US it still has relevance today. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celestina | 3/31/2013

    " Another 4 1/2 stars. This is good stuff! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 8/31/2012

    " This one required some thinking but wasn't beyond my ability to stick with it even when only hoping for some escapist pleasure. Good read. "

    " This was a really good book. The story was detailed and kept you interested. Enjoyed reading it. "

    " The FBI chases after an international terrorist planning a threat in New York City. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 10/14/2011

    " In the context of post 9-11 America this novel is extremely interesting and also with respect to the recent outcry against wall street. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bhuvanesh Raj | 9/6/2011

    " Finder disappointed his fans with this one. I expected a better one. This book deserves 2.5 stars since it has a very good pace but lacks twists and Finder's brilliance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 7/16/2011

    " I really like this author. The book is a little dated, but still excellent. A thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray Flynt | 1/24/2011

    " This is a suspenseful story, but I felt like technology (and overly described aspects of technology) held up the pace of what could have been a more engaging thriller. The book was written in the late-90's, and the discussion about the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 was interesting. "
