In this follow up to book #1 (AGENT ZERO) in the Agent Zero spy series, TARGET ZERO (Book #2) takes us on another wild, action-packed ride across Europe as elite CIA agent Kent Steele is summoned to stop a biological weapon before it devastates the world—all while grappling with his own memory loss.
Life returns only fleetingly back to normal for Kent before he finds himself summoned by the CIA to hunt down terrorists and stop another international crisis—this one even more potentially devastating than the last. Yet with an assassin hunting him down, a conspiracy within, moles all around him and with a lover he can barely trust, Kent is setup to fail.
His memory is quickly returning, though, and with it, flashes into the secrets of who he was, what he’d discovered, and why they are after him.
His own identity, he realizes, may be the most perilous secret of all.
TARGET ZERO is an espionage thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night.
“Thriller writing at its best.”

Banks is a brilliant codifier whose job is to design glitches in a virtual duplicate of the System. But when glitches appear in the real System, Banks uncovers a hidden intelligence that threatens the course of humanity. More terrifying is the realization that everything he knows to be true is actually a lie.
Banks finds himself in the preposterous position of saving the world. And frankly, even with the help of some friends, his chances are slim.
