Chuck Wendig’s ZER0ES

9780062351555I am a huge fan of Chuck Wendig’s Miriam Black series so when I saw he had a new book coming out I had to read it.

On the surface this appears to be a cyber-thriller about hacking. But in the hands of Chuck Wendig it goes somewhere quite different. The book opens and we are introduced to five different hackers; an activist, a professional troller, an old-school hacker, a money skimmer and an amateur hacker completely out of his depth. They have all come to the Government’s attention in their various ways, for various crimes, and each of them is rounded up and offered a deal: come and work for the Government for a year or spend the next ten years in jail. They each take the deal.

But working for the Government doesn’t mean they all become cyber-spies instead they are whisked off to a secret camp with other hackers who are all put to the test to see what they can and can’t do. No one knows which agency they are working for; the NSA? The CIA? Or something more secretive. But as they do their testing (and some of their own digging) they start to uncover a secret project called Typhon. But the more they dig, the more they unearth and once Project Typhon is exposed it might already be too late.

Wendig weaves together a fantastic hacker thriller that halfway through takes a massive  and very clever twist. Utilizing all our existing technology Wendig creates a truly scary scenario that is also wickedly entertaining. If you loved Max Barry’s Lexicon or are a fan of Duane Swierczynski Zer0es is a great place to discover the brilliance that is Chuck Wendig. And I can’t wait to read his Star Wars novel later in the year!
