Publisher's Summary

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.

Appalling, don't waste your money.

The narrators' attempt at an Afrikaans accent was painful, but combine that with a plot that just wasn't credible or detailed, left me desperate to reach the end in the vain hope that it would get better, it didn't.

I accept that it was written before the 'twin towers' disaster and the level of knowledge in how international terrorism and counter-terrorism practices are put in place has increased significantly among the general population. But even that minor point in this Audibles' favour does not affect the overall feeling of woeful inadequacy compared to a Frederick Forsyth for example.

Move on.
