A maligned hacker. A Mossad agent. A mutual enemy.
No longer of any use to the governments who once coveted his cybercriminal mind, disgraced hacker Kelvin Gallagher finds himself languishing in Prague while waiting for his enemies to find him and end his sufferings. Along comes a Mossad agent, once a friend, but now determined to take him home in a body bag…Zero Day
is book 2 in USA Today
bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Binary Hackers
series of inspirational near-future cyberthrillers combining technothriller and romance. If you’re looking for clean suspense without compromising the Christian faith, these books are for you.
What is happening with a hacker who straddles the fence between desiring to do what is right while doing all the wrong things? While Zero Sum
(book 1) explores Cayson Yang’s problems with cybernetic implants, Zero Day
(book 2) takes us behind the scenes to the other side, to the world of people with nefarious intention and to the moral battles in their minds.
We met Kelvin in the first pages of Zero Sum
, shortly before he was whisked away to parts unknown. In Zero Day
, we pick up his story some months afterwards.
The prisoner awaits…
Down and out and waiting to die, mercenary hacker Kelvin Gallagher regrets betraying his homeland. Rejected by everyone, Kelvin has no choice but dig deeper into the dark hole into which he has fallen.
He remembers his ex-employers at Binary Systems, Inc., who have given him a job when nobody else dared. Are Cayson Yang and Leland Yang-Joule more moral than he is? He thinks not. Aren’t they all working for money?
Yeah, life is worth more than money. Kelvin knows that, but it’s too late. Way too late as he sits in a rat-infested rundown building in Old Prague, fearful and in anguish.
The executioner comes…
As an act of revenge, former Mossad agent Yona Epstein tracks down the American traitor who led her mentor to the slaughterhouse. It makes Yona angry that Kelvin used to be a friend, back when they worked together in a project.
When Yona uncovers Kelvin’s hideout in Europe, she realizes she isn’t the only one who wants Kelvin dead. That makes her pause.
To kill or not to kill…
When Kelvin explains his version of the cybercrime nightmare of his own making, several events don’t match up with what Yona has been told by her associates.
Is Kelvin innocent after all? Should Yona delay the execution until she finds out what is going on? Or proceed based on the information she already has? She trusts her sources, doesn’t she?
Before Yona can decide on how to deal with Kelvin, enemies close in as their past catches up to them.
