About this item
ZERO OPTIONWhen FBI Agent David Stafford finds himself on the Bureau's out list for publicly blowing the whistle on a corrupt colleague, he receives a low-profile assignment to investigate an Atlanta military base, where someone is suspected of auctioning off equipment without authorization.
Now a cylinder containing an extremely hazardous biochemical weapon is missing, and Stafford is on the trail of the thief—traveling from the hills of Georgia to the halls of the Pentagon—in a race to recover the weapon before it falls into enemy hands.
With strong characters and a plot that is frighteningly real, Deutermann's Zero Option is his most commercial novel yet, reminiscent of Tom Clancy and Nelson DeMille.
SWEEPERS1969: a Navy SEAL, a trained assassin on a confidential mission, is dropped off in the Vietnam jungle. Days later, a U.S. gunboat returns to pick him up, but the boat's young captain panics under fire and leaves the SEAL behind.
Twenty years later, that young captain is now a Pentagon admiral as the SEAL returns to Washington, D.C. with his own career change: he's become a sweeper—a clandestine cleaner of secret messes. And he's come back to claim some things of value—things the admiral can't afford to lose.
Navy Commander Karen Lawrence—sharp, smart, and savvy—is assigned to investigate the bad things that start happening to the admiral. She finds herself caught between one man's boundless ambition and another's relentless quest for revenge.
