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.

Zero World by Jason M. Hough

Zero WorldLet the countdown to action begin as Jason M. Hough firmly etches his name on the A list of science fiction writers as he leaves you caught in the magnetic gravity of every single page. Welcome to Zero World where someone is playing Russian Roulette with the planets.

A tear in space, a spaceship long missing is found. The crew is dead, but one member is missing. On a mission to discover the fate of the missing crew member, superspy Peter Caswell is on the case, but what he discovers will shake the foundations of the universe as it is known. Not unlike the Bizzaro world of Superman, Earth has a mirror planet, so similar, yet so twisted and here, the missing scientist is found. Has she become like the All Powerful Oz? For Peter, time is running out and he must get to the bottom of this mystery or die trying.

Jason M. Hough has done it, again! Welcome to the future as his mind sees it, filled with mystery and intrigue, deceit and the machinations of those with the power, using people like Peter as their unwitting pawns. Gripping, chilling, twisted and packed with action from start to finish, let your imagination run as free as Mr. Hough’s as each scene unfolds. Hang on tight to each world, this is a twisted journey far from home, one that even the hero make not survive. Check your gravity belts, grab some freeze-dried rations and prepare for the countdown to liftoff!
