Overview

The Zero Game by Brad Meltzer

The New York Times bestselling author of The Millionaires and The First Counsel returns to Wash-ington, D.C., with the story of an insider's game that turns deadly.

Matthew Mercer and Harris Sandler are best friends who have plum jobs as senior staffers to well-respected congressmen. But after a decade in Washington, idealism has faded to disillusionment, and they're bored. Then one of them finds out about the clandestine Zero Game. It starts out as good fun-a simple wager between friends. But when someone close to them ends up dead, Harris and Matthew realize the game is far more sinister than they ever imagined-and that they're about to be the game's next victims. On the run, they turn to the only person they can trust: a 16-year-old Senate page who can move around the Capitol undetected. As a ruthless killer creeps closer, this idealistic page not only holds the key to saving their lives, but is also determined to redeem them in the process. Come play The Zero Game-you can bet your life on it.

I received this book as a free bonus book at the end of a Preston & Childs book. I really enjoyed the Zero Game, it was well written, with many plot twists. I will be reading other Meltzer books for sure!

I got this book free with another book. I loved this book it kept my intrest from start to finish. I could not put the book down. So far it is my favorite book by this writer. I have read many of his books and i will continue to read them. I also recomend the inner circle. All his books make me enjoy reading more. I would recomend this book to everyone. I believe his books really are for all readers.

I was kind of disappointed in some of the character development. The hero's sidekick,Viv, could have been great, but the author left this very intelligent female page the typical female...timid, and easily dupped because she was too emotional. The fight scene was very well written. I felt like I was in the room with Harris and Janos. This was my first Meltzer book and I would purchase another one. I like his use of historical backdrops.

I enjoyed reading this book. I don't know if this kind of stuff goes on in our Capital or not but if it does someone need to clean house.

This was my first book by Brad Meltzer and I was impressed. Yes, the plot is far-fetched and implausible, but that is what makes it entertaining. As someone who has lived in the DC area, there are enough little details that Meltzer gets exactly right to make the story not seem so crazy. The action is pretty fast paced and even if you find the story unbelievable (especially the science part), you'll still want to keep reading to find out what happens. The characters are well developed, though the character and dialogue of Viv is a little cliche at times and the "bad guy" is sometimes too invincible. Overall, I would definitely recommend to any political action/thriller reader.
