The last thing John remembers is insurgents sawing off his arm. Now he's shackled to an operating table, and, astonishingly enough, his dismembered limb is still attached.
John wants to settle the score, but first he must escape. To do so, he needs your help.
Your choices determine John's fate. Can you guide him through the dangers of MH-ZERO?
Author's Note: This story has branching paths. At the end of each section, John will ask what he should do next and offer a handful of choices.
There are two ways to navigate these choices. The easiest way is to click the links I've supplied. Alternatively, you may use your e-reader’s chapter list to skip to the appropriate section number (which you’ll see noted in parenthesis).
Another young couple falls into the alternative bittersweet nightmare, computer programmer Stan Brent and his mathematician wife Audrey, in this second book of The Grasshopper Man series. Trapped in what they come to call The System with them are colleagues Mary Wells, Luke Simmons, and Jacob Ellery. The mercenary computer guru Ann Crenshaw and her two assistants, Todd Richards and Brett Thompson, follow them into the trap. They are pursued through time and place by Indonesian pirates, battle their way across wartorn France, relive harrowing episodes from their own pasts, and endure other adventures in Nepal, Irian Jaya, New Zealand, the U.S., and other times and places. Their only help comes from the enigmatic Jane, who was sent in to rescue Doug and Chris and became trapped herself. But how long will she be there to help?
On the outside, four homeless Chinese children from mainland China are trapped in their own adventures, intersecting occasionally with the others in The System.
The storylines continue to explore the nature of Reality as they continually prove thatLove is the most important Reality.

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
