Luca Pesaro - Zero Alternative - Review & Giveaway



About the Book

“Sometimes you must destroy first.”

To stay alive, Scott Walker must bring down a corrupt international bank. And possibly shatter the world’s economy. Because finance is a black hole ready to chew up countries and people before spitting them out rich, or broken. Or both.

Framed. Hunted. In love with a woman he can’t trust. As he hides from hitmen across Europe, Walker has only one card to play – DeepShare. A silicon oracle that could predict a slice of the future, and that everyone wants. Governments and insane billionaires, criminals and anarchist hackers stand in his way, some even promising help – though with dangerous strings attached.

As Walker struggles to survive and digs deeper into the dark heart of the global economy, one question torments him: how much will the world have to pay?

Zero Alternative is an action-packed conspiracy thriller that plucks at the heart 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.

My Review

At first, I thought this wouldn't be my type of a book since it's about financial markets and stock trading. But the storyline picked up as I read along, and the pace became relentless in a very exciting way.

Scott and Layla, the main characters, are both equally fascinating. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen to them next as they ran for their lives from the baddies determined to silence them.

Simply put, this book was un-put-downable. I highly recommend it if you enjoy international intrigue because this is a globetrotting manhunt teeming with suspense.
