Zero-G – Rob Boffard


The clock is ticking down again for Riley Hale.

She may be the newest member of Outer Earth’s law enforcement team, but she feels less in control than ever. A twisted doctor bent on revenge is blackmailing her with a deadly threat. If Riley’s to survive, she must follow his orders, and break a dangerous prisoner out of jail. To save her own skin, Riley must go against all her beliefs, and break every law that she’s just sworn to protect. Riley’s mission will get even tougher when all sectors are thrown into lock-down. A lethal virus has begun to spread through Outer Earth, and it seems little can stop it. If Riley doesn’t live long enough to help to find a cure, then the last members of the human race will perish along with her.

The future of humanity hangs in the balance. And time is running out.

Regular readers may recall that I was enormously impressed with Tracer, Rob’s first book. Indeed, it made it into my books of the year list for 2015. It was a *huge* amount of fun and when I met with Rob on his signing tour in Leeds (shameless namedrop), he assured me that the follow-up would be turned all the way up to 11…

Zero-G is *exactly* that.

Riley Hale is back. She’s joined the Stompers, part of Outer Earth law enforcement. The action kicks off on page one and never lets up until the final page. You thought Darnell was twisted in Tracer?

You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Riley is forced to do impossible things, to an impossible deadline, breaking all her rules, going against all she believes in if anyone is going to survive. The chapters are super-short and punchy, told from various viewpoints and demanding that you read just one more. Rob manages to pull off more cliffhangers than you’d think possible in a single book, but does so with style, and you just *know* he’s got an evil glint in his eye whilst writing it.

Hard to say much more without spoiling it for you. Go read it.

The ending will leave you wanting book #3, which is out later this year – question is, can Rob turn it up *past* 11?

On the form shown here, I wouldn’t bet against it…
