Sometimes you must destroy first

Written by Luca Pesaro

Framed, hunted, betrayed… 

Scott Walker is a fugitive from the quicksands of Finance, with one card to play – DeepShare, a silicon oracle coveted by billionaires, hitmen and hackers. As he fights for survival and vengeance, digging deeper into the dark heart of the global economy, one question torments him: what price will the world have to pay?

ZERO ALTERNATIVE is an action-packed conspiracy thriller that plucks at the base of human nature. When our grip on love, hope and morality starts to slide, the only future worth living is the one we choose for ourselves.

Here's what

Fans are saying

If you like some heat in your whodunits, this smoldering couple's for you

I wasn't expecting a love story when I first picked up this book, but it turned out to be my favorite part of the novel. I would even shelve it under romantic suspense instead of categorizing it as a straight thriller. Why? Because Scott and Layla are so dynamic. You can't have one without the other. While Scott's all business, Layla's all danger, and I loved that about them.

Quite simply, they're two people who shouldn't fall in love, but do. They know that even though they're good for each other, the circumstances in which they find themselves are hardly ideal. She's a wounded gun for hire desperately in need of medical attention, and he was just named to Interpol's most wanted. Together, they form a combustible mix just ready to explode.

Bottom line, mess with Scott Walker, and be willing to pay the price

I think most people would agree stock traders aren't the most likable characters on the planet. After the mortgage and credit crisis of 2008, many hardworking individuals lost their homes and their retirement savings due to a marketplace that had little to no regulations in place. People were being approved for loans that banks knew they couldn't pay back.

In ZERO ALTERNATIVE, Scott Walker knows all of this, and it makes him even more jaded than he already is. He's a hot shot investment banker who worked his way up through the trenches. At thirty-six, he's in the prime of his career and arrogant to a fault. No one plays the market like he does. He takes chances when others hold back.

He gambles on what's going to happen before it does. He doesn't have a crystal ball at his disposal to predict the future, but he has something darn close. A technological marvel called DeepShare that pieces together current headlines and matches them up with past events all in the blink of an eye.
