FBI Special Agent and counterterrorism expert Sarah Cahill doesn't know the man she's tracking. But the so-called "Prince of Darkness" knows her—intimately. So when Sarah is summoned to Wall Street to investigate, little does she know that she's the one under surveillance… until the terrorist infiltrates himself into the deepest, most desperate corners of her life.

Soon Sarah is plunged into a deep labyrinth of intrigue and catastrophe as she races to uncover a diabolically clever conspiracy…before time runs out…and the clock strikes THE ZERO HOUR... from bestselling author Joseph Finder.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 2/16/2014

    " 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.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray Flynt | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth Niles | 1/16/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug Branscombe | 1/8/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 12/23/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne | 12/21/2013

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alison Packard | 11/22/2013

    " 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 Greg | 11/19/2013

    " My first time reading a Finder book. Some predictability to it. Enjoyed a few a of characters but you don't really get to know them enough to care about them. Will give his writing another try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 11/18/2013

    " 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 Steve | 10/15/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bhuvanesh Raj | 9/10/2012

    " 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 Celestina | 7/16/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell Brooks | 3/15/2012

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

    " I love Finder's books and somehow missed this one way back when. It was a little too technical and descriptive for me, and I think his later books are less so. But it was a good and exciting story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lablover | 1/6/2011

    " 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. "
