A crazed terrorist looms high above the Earth, and pilot Hawk Hunter must take him down: “The best high-action thriller writer out there today, bar none” (Jon Land).
  It’s been years since the Soviet Union used its last dying breath to rain nuclear annihilation upon the United States. Now, freedom’s greatest enemy is no longer the entire Russian government; it’s a single Russian man: Viktor Robotov, a demented genius, is an expert at inciting mayhem. Twice he has manipulated global politics to produce catastrophic wars, and twice the pilot Hawk Hunter has thwarted him. But Robotov’s latest scheme will force Hunter to fly higher than he ever has before—all the way to outer space. On a state-of-the-art Russian shuttle, Robotov launches himself into orbit, planning to collect the derelict laser satellites left over from the so-called Star Wars defense system. When he returns the satellites to Earth, he plans to shower death upon mankind. But he has to land first—and the Wingman will be waiting for him. Target Point Zero is the twelfth book of the Wingman series, which also includes Wingman and The Circle War.

From New York Times bestseller and Hugo Award-winner John Scalzi, a wild-and-woolly caper novel of interstellar diplomacy

A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most . . . unusual . . . way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: a type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony.

To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinare, who, with the help of a childhood friend turned artificial intelligence, scours the earth looking for the rare creature.
But there are others with plans for the sheep as well. Mercenaries employed by the military. Adherents of a secret religion based on the writings of a 21st century SF author. And alien races, eager to start a revolution on their home world and a war on Earth.

To keep our planet from being enslaved, Harry will have to pull off a grand diplomatic coup, a gambit that will take him from the halls of power to the lava-strewn battlefields of alien worlds. There's only one chance to get it right, to save the life of the sheep—and to protect the future of humanity.
