Cas Russell specializes in retrieval. With skills ranging from hand-to-hand combat to small arms fire to evasive driving, she is a force to be reckoned with… but what makes her special is an advanced working knowledge of all things mathematical. She has an equation for everything. The aiming vector for her snubnose, the results of algorithms to deduce the similarities of millions of seemingly random numbers… all immediate answers ready in her head.
When a new case spirals out of control, Who hired her and why? And who should she trust? The questions keep piling up and these blank pieces drive a narrative that is fun, exciting, and worth every minute of reading. All she can figure out is that her enemy has the ability to influence your every move with a psychic connection and manipulation that her allies will have great trouble competing with.
Zero Sum Game is a novel with slick computer hackers, mathematical-enhanced fighting, and a rocking new character to follow on the hunt. Throw in some great original lines and you have a Marvel-esque action series worth following. Previously self-published and now with Tor, it should get the buzz it deserves.
