Publisher's Summary

Technologically enhanced superspy Peter Caswell has been dispatched on a top-secret assignment unlike any he's ever faced. A spaceship that vanished years ago has been found, along with the bodies of its murdered crew - save one. Peter's mission is to find the missing crew member, who fled through what appears to be a tear in the fabric of space. Beyond this mysterious doorway lies an even more confounding reality: a world that seems to be Earth's twin. Peter discovers that this mirrored world is indeed different from his home and far more dangerous. Cut off from all support, and with only days to complete his operation, Peter must track his quarry alone on an alien world. But he's unprepared for what awaits on the planet's surface, where his skills will be put to the ultimate test - and everything he knows about the universe will be challenged in ways he never could have imagined.

It's a Deadman's Party! Who could ask for more?

Solid read/listen! Hough's parlayed his sci-fi cred to push him past "Dire Earth's" tentative upstart energy with an even more clever imagining of a future pock-marked with the consequences of our current sins. "Zero" intelligently comments on some unexpected issues without condensation and a sly wit that winks at convention while brutally carrying out it's main action packed mission. My only complaint... Del Rey should have had more confidence in Hough's progressive vision by adding the real hero to "Zero World's" cover art. A recommended read. Gratitude!

Please, let this be the first of a series!

Really dug this book a lot. The author has a talent for super-imaginative world building, and the main characters are interesting, sympathetic, and real. I cared about them.
The story goes places you'll never expect; there are not one, but several plot twists that left me gaping and going, WHAT?? (but in a good way)
Very nicely performed by Gideon Emery, who handles vocal characterization of both male and female characters quite well. Lots of cool action, some thought provoking ideas and moments, and an ending that both satisfies and leaves things wide open for "the further adventures of..."
Wholeheartedly recommended.
