Publisher's Summary

In File Zero, Agent Zero’s memory finally comes flooding back - and with it, shocking revelations about the CIA’s secret plot to spark a war and to take his life. Disavowed and on the run, can he stop them in time?

When an incident in the Strait of Hormuz threatens to mushroom into an all-out war, Agent Zero’s memory comes rushing back, and with it, a chance to uncover the plot that caused his memory loss to begin with. Discredited, with few friends left, Zero is on his own as he tries to stop the CIA while also saving his targeted family. 

Yet as he digs deeper, another, more nefarious, plot comes to surface, one which will require him to trust no one, and to risk it all to save the country he loves. 

File Zero (Agent Zero, Book 5) is an enthralling espionage thriller that will keep you listening late into the night.

Jack, do you have to make Agent Zeros girls,

so stupid! I like the story line, but the over all story line with Agent Zero's daughters (in the 5 books series) was tiresome and old. It is like the girl being chased by monsters and falling over and over again. once maybe or twice but it really got to be a distraction to the story. I had to fast forward thru those parts of the AUDIO.

Becoming my favorite author.

I seem to love everything Mr. Mars writes. I even listened to some of his first series twice! Please keep writing.

Much better!

Significant improvement over the last book. This wrapped up questions from book 1 and neatly finished a long line of questions. The narrator was much better this time and stopped making the girls sound so weak and feeble, while making Steele sound more real.

Great series!

I listened to all five books. I hope we hear from agent zero again! I could see a spinoff with some of the other characters too.

Top Read by Jack Mars!

I’ve currently read about everything Jack Morris’s room, and I must say that this by far is the best book he has ever written! It’s worth reading each of the Kent Steele novels just to get to this book!

Gotta listen to the whole series of 5 books Great!

The story kept me engaged and active. I got pissed when Zero was pissed, worried, when he was worried, relieved, when He finally would struggle out of an intense situation. The emotions move from extreme love, understanding one minute to absolute rage and hate the next and then resolve itself. You can always count on Mars to keep you on your toes. I would love to hear more from Kent Steele in the days to come!

Going downhill

The series started off ok, and has been falling behind since the second book. It's made worse by the change in reader since the third book as the current reader is just not nearly as good. Too much voice acting IMO.

The United States Navy has NO battleships in service. A writer should know this and stop referring to mothballed ships as being in service. Some basic research would have solved this issue. Arleigh Burke class destroyers are also not battleships. Moreover it will not require a full flight of Tomahawk missiles to sink a coastal / inland sea patrol vessel. One will do the job.

It is common that authors get their firearm knowledge and terminology wrong. A HK MP5 is not a rifle or a machine gun. It is a fully automatic machine pistol chambering the 9mm Parabellum, a standard NATO round, the same as in the US military issue Beretta self-loading pistol. A SAW is not a particularly high powered automatic rifle although it does have an aggressive rate of fire. An AR-15 is not a fully automatic rifle. That is the civilian version of the military M-16 or shorter M-4 carbine. These all use the same rounds as the SAW, the NATO 5.56. All of these firearms contain their rounds in magazines. None of them use clips. This last point is missed by so many writers, one cannot beat Mr. Mars for it too hard. Again, basic research would have helped.

I fear that early success has resulted in rushing later novels in the series and some rather creative retconning of events in prior novels.

Narrator not as good as story

This is a really good series. The narrator’s voice for Agent Zero was so unassuming and wimpy it was hard to listen.

Narration sounds like Don Knotts on helium

Love this series but I'm barely into 2 chapters and want to pull my hair out over the narration. These books would do much better with George Guidall or Ari F from the Gabriel Allon series by Daniel Silva.
