From heroes to zeros—their fall from grace could not have been more spectacular. The unlikely duo had saved Las Vegas from a rogue weapon, but the small matter of a flattened airbase sees the authorities hunt them down nonetheless, painted for all the world to see as a latter-day Bonnie & Clyde.
Given the circumstances, they should have ended up in some godforsaken hole, having what they don't know beaten out of them.
Instead it seems their redemption lies with a mysterious artefact known as Bloc Zero.
Discovering where and what it is will see them chase halfway around the world, with unseen adversaries and enigmatic allies at every twist and turn.
Bloc Zero is another zany thriller from William Bowden - Dan Brown meets the Twilight Zone with seasoning from the X-Files.
