Review: Zero Days - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

The New York Times bestselling “new Agatha Christie” (Air Mail) Ruth Ware returns with this adrenaline-fueled thriller that combines Mr. and Mrs. Smith with The Fugitive about a woman in a race against time to clear her name and find her husband’s murderer.

Hired by companies to break into buildings and hack security systems, Jack and her husband, Gabe, are the best penetration specialists in the business. But after a routine assignment goes horribly wrong, Jack arrives home to find her husband dead. To add to her horror, the police are closing in on their suspect—her.

Suddenly on the run and quickly running out of options, Jack must decide who she can trust as she circles closer to the real killer in this unputdownable and heart-pounding mystery from an author whose “propulsive prose keeps readers on the hook and refuses to let anyone off until all has been revealed” (Shelf Awareness).

Zero Days
By Ruth Ware

Review: Zero Days

A security expert goes on the run after she’s wanted for her husband’s murder – in Ruth Ware’s exhilarating Zero Days.

It feels like another routine project when Jack and her husband, Gabe, are hired to challenge a company’s security measures, but just before wrapping up, everything goes awry. By the time Jack returns home, she finds Gabe brutally murdered, throat slit. Despite cooperating with police, she soon realizes she’s their primary suspect and knows her only way out is to uncover Gabe’s killer herself. Desperate and devastated all at once, Jack goes on the run to ferret out those responsible for upending their lives.

Propulsive and pumping with adrenaline, Zero Days is a nonstop, fast-track chase. In the vein of the film The Fugitive, Jack must find those responsible, before she is found by police. The novel strayed somewhat from Ware’s usual style, feeling more straightforward thriller, less knotted mystery, but it nonetheless worked.

I accurately identified the killer early on (small cast of characters), but between close-calls, break-ins, medical emergencies, and the clock ticking down, Ware kept me at the edge of my seat, clamoring to see how it all would end.

Ware has forged a riveting, cinematic, high-stakes thriller adrenaline junkies will relish.
