The Zero Game

by Brad Meltzer

Matthew Mercer and Harris Sandler are playing a game almost no one knows about – not their friends, not their coworkers, and certainly not their powerful bosses, who are some of the most influential senators and congressmen on Capitol Hill. It’s a game that has everything: risk, reward, and the thrill of knowing that – just by being invited to play – you’ve becoming a true insider. But behind this game is a secret so explosive it will shake Washington to its core. And when one player turns up dead, a dedicated young staffer will find himself relying on a tough, idealistic seventeen-year-old Senate page to help keep him alive … as he plays the Zero Game to its heart-pounding end.

Review: Finished May 25th, 2005. This book is unbelievable! I’m extremely glad I decided to ‘gamble’ on it. Brad knows how to write, and I can’t wait to pick up his other novels. His characters are colourful, with completely different personalitities. His plot twists are awesomely written; heck, the plot turns again in the Epilogue, and it was awesome to see a twist thrown in that way. I’d never read a book where the author did that, and after reading the book, it was greatly appreciated. The story is can’t-wait-to-turn-the-page, action-packed with just the right amount of humour, witticism, sarcasm, hysterics, to make this book what it is. I can’t wait to get my hands on his other books! I can’t wait to see if they turn this one into a movie, it’s that good!
