The unelected underlings are the ones who really seem to run Washington in this very fast moving murder/suspense/mystery novel by Brad Meltzer. The "game" in THE ZERO GAME is a risky top secret gamble that is played by the real power brokers of D.C.: Senate staffers. The action is told in the first person present tense when the heroes are plotting, discovering, running and then switches to the third person past when the sinister evil forces do their deeds. This clever style kept me reading at breakneck speed, but gave me resting spots to catch my breath, though I never wanted to put the book down.
The characters were well developed and the plot was intricately woven. No matter your political views, this book will sharpen your interest in the Capitol as you race with congressional aides and Senate pages through the maze of secret tunnels there to the darker labyrinth of tunnels and shafts in an abandoned gold mine halfway across the country.
