GONE AT ZERO HUNDRED 00:00 is an Amazon Bestselling Novel in Teen Espionage and Mystery Thriller...

***"Syd and Cody are smart, cocky, willing to do anything to solve the crime and shut down the bad guys for real. And wow, does Hiatt deliver an on-fire, never-let-up force of two by the name of McSwain and Beck."
~~Amazon Reviewer

***"High-octane, action packed and quick-witted romp through the perilous underworld. Written in a vein similar to early James Patterson (his good stuff) the chapters are short and make you want to gobble them down."
~~ Goodreads Reviewer
 
***"WARNING...when starting this book make sure you don't have anywhere you need to be or anything you need to do because you WON'T want to stop reading!! Trust me on this! The book starts off with an explosive, unforgettable beginning and just keeps going. The characters of Syd and Cody were a perfect pair...funny, smart, snarky...they totally need their own TV series!"
~~ Goodreads Reviewer
 
Overview of Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00:
 
"NOW THEY BELONG TO THE PRIVILEGED ONES..."
 
A prominent P.I. is gunned down - killed by a sniper - and it is broadcasted on live TV.
 
Now, her daughter, along with her childhood pal, are thrust into a complex and riveting thriller forced to take on a secret club whose members call themselves The Privileged Ones. 
 
Murder. Trafficking, and illegal underground parties.
 
They're chased by men in ski-masks, nearly gunned down by members of a cartel, and the only way to bring down this criminal enterprise; is to crash a Mardi Gras bash and stop their private cruise ship from sailing off into the sunset.

"Their lives are in the hands of two 18-year-olds..."
 
PRAISE...

***"Not since Alex Rider have I devoured fiction geared for young adults with such zeal. McSwain and Beck had me sitting back and letting them take the lead on a wild ride as they worked their way through mystery and mayhem! Now on to the second book, Fireworks on the 4th!"
~~Amazon Reviewer

***"Wow! I gotta say that Ms. Hiatt has got major writing skills! She gripped me from prologue to finish with this thrilling start to a great new YA Mystery series. Her characters are awesome and quickly pull you into the heart of the story, as you turn page after page of thrilling twists and turns. I loved following the characters on this roller coaster ride."
~~ Reviews by Molly
 
If you liked the sleuthing of Veronica Mars and the action of Alex Rider, with the writing style of James Patterson, you'll enjoy this series!!!
  
BONUS INSIDE: 
 
The first two chapters of the second book in the series: Fireworks on the 4th.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

WARNING: The exploits of the sleuthing duo of McSwain & Beck are not fanciful fairy tales, or made for TV love stories. Though the series is fiction, the crimes depicted are straight from the headline-type stories, developed from interviews with big city and small town detectives. The situations are real. Ruthless corruption is real, and the perpetrators and victims are getting younger. It is becoming a gritty society of good versus evil. The question is: who will prevail?

About the Author

CR HIATT is a writer of screenplays and an author of YA action-mystery novels. The daughter of a military veteran, CR grew up in a small town where she became an All-American athlete. CR knew early on that she wasn't cut out for the nine to five type of job - her tendency to day dream about adventures often got in the way. But, being the daughter of a Navy Veteran she also knew one had to do what was necessary to be secure, so she disciplined herself to push those dreams aside and settled on working in the entertainment legal field. When those dreams invaded her world once again, CR finally gave in and set out to write her own adventures. What the heck, right. If you can't live 'em, you might as well write about them. The journey started after CR interviewed big city detectives about their lives on the job; then talked with some of their victims. That resulted in her first YA series: McSwain & Beck. The novels are works of fiction, only based on real life events, but you can't help but wonder while reading the books which parts are true. When CR isn't writing, she enjoys renovating houses, spending time outdoors, catching up on her favorite books and TV shows and most importantly, spending time at the campfires with her family, friends, and Golden Retriever, Annabelle.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Action-Packed, Thrill Ride! April 11, 2012
By MG
Format:Kindle Edition
Gone at Zero Hundred Packs Some Major Torque! I was blown away by this complex, high-octane thriller. The non-stop action of this impeccable mystery made it impossible for me to stop reading. I was amused, enticed and engrossed with the sexy, sassy, smart-ass sleuths McSwain & Beck. They're intelligent, raw and realistic.

McSwain & Beck are drawn into a freakish murder-mystery, where they are compelled to uncover the truth at any cost. Their target is a sickening gang of relentless killers. They are placed in highly dangerous scenarios, cat and mouse chases, not to mention dealing with devilish drug dealers, who are so disgusting I wanted to light them on fire with a flamethrower and watch them burn.

CR Hiatt is an incredibly detailed writer. ALL the characters are thoroughly described down to each and every idiosyncrasy. I look forward to the second installment of the McSwain & Beck series and hope someone is smart enough to make this thrilling story into a movie. The author has an incredible gift of keeping the reader engaged. I highly recommend Gone at Zero Hundred. It's an entertaining read by an amazing author.

3.0 out of 5 stars YA Action/Adventure/Suspense June 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this book as part of a blog tour hosted by Reading Addiction Blog Tours for C.R. Hiatt. I first agreed to do it because I love a good mystery and adventure. This book did deliver such a story. This book kept the pace and was a quick read. The chapters are quick and not too long, making the story fly by. The mystery and plot was developed very well. A lot is going on, but the author does tie it up nicely at the end. However, she doesn't finish everything in the end as there is a follow up book.
Sydney and Cody are the main characters. They are great friends and work well together. Their personal interests combine very well throughout the story. Another character I did enjoy was Detective Carter. He was the comfort of the law enforcement side to the entire story. I enjoyed his character so much I hope we see him in the next book.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a great story. Plenty of action and suspense on every page. And a reminder...not everything is wrapped up because there is a second book to be published soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed! June 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What a rollercoaster of a book!! I was GLUED to it!! The two main characters are thrown into a murder-mystery. The chapters are not too long, so it was an easy read. I was a bit skeptical, as it's listed as a YA book, but I was very happy with the content! Hence, don't judge a book by it's cover! So if YA isn't your cup of tea, but you like murder-mystery and lots of action, you just may want to give this book a try! I can't wait for the second book to come out. I may even have my teenage son read Gone at Zero Hundred.

The characters and the story line were very well thought out and really flowed with the book. This book would make an awesome movie! I can't wait to read more from C.R. Hiatt!!

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGH OCTANE ADVENTURE! August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did you ever want to be transported away from the stress...the day-to-day...the mundane and just get kidnapped into a wonderful, wild, youthful world of sleuths and detectives and coming of age? If you answered yes to all of these questions, DO NOT HESITATE TO DOWNLOAD THIS AMAZING BOOK. I JUST DID! I read it everywhere...getting my car washed, getting my hair cut, getting my pedicure (I know, I'm a guy, but gals dig this)... I could not stop reading! And, what made it SO mesmerizing was Sydney! Her metamorphosis from a young tomboy girl under the tutelage of a single-strong mother, to the uprising of self-matured heroine is breathtaking, subtle and heartfelt. Bravo! The writing team of McSwain and Beck are responsible for this beautiful, touching transformation! Cody! Okay! He's hot, fiercely hot and the chemistry between the two as friends, best friends and the innocent trickle of `better' friends keeps the heart cursor blinking... maybe not in this book, but definelty...to be continued...HOT!! I loved it. So will you. Don't forget there is more than enough mystery and clues and mayhem to keep even the most ardent mystery reader's piqued interest...but it wouldn't be worth half the ride without these incredibly LOVABLE characters. Oh, and don't forget Carter! He deserves a heartfelt plug! Can't wait for the sequel!! 5 stars on my Richter scale! Now, I'm gone in less than sixty seconds...or I'll self-destruct!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling Read July 7, 2012
Format:Paperback
I picked this book up thinking I could use a good adventure. The cover, the title, the synopsis all lead to an adventure and I got an adventure. This book was thrilling, exciting, and full of action, mystery, and attitude.

The story revolves around a girl, Sydney McSwain, and her best friend, Cody Beck. After graduation when tragedy strikes, they decide to take over her mother's private eye business. This decision leads to them getting chased, beat up, and shot at, not to mention they solve the big mystery and bring the baddies down. Sounds like so much fun.

Sydney is an amazing heroine. She is very snarky, which I love, very independent, courageous, cunning, and very sneaky. Her mother taught her well in the business and she starts off the business better than your average PI. Cody is sexy, funny, smart, and a real flirt. They make a very odd couple but their friendship works. They back and forth banter had me laughing out loud on many occasions.

Sydney and Cody are thrown into a mess of crime when their very first client walks in the door asking for surveillance detail on her step brother. Form that moment Sydney's life gets very interesting. In the process of staking out her target she stumbles on to some very heavy things and has to connect all the pieces. She and Cody never hesitate when it came to solving the mystery.

There were events in the story that were over the top but somehow it fit. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started the book. I have not read to many crime books. I am sure this will be the start of many as it was a blast to read. The story was really easy to get into. It's your average teens being kidnapped, breaking and entering, and murderous plot, but with the added bonus of McSwain and Beck. It was a fun ride and I really enjoyed reading this book. I look forward to the next installment.
