Publisher's Summary

Vengeance Zero is book 10 in the number one best-selling Agent Zero series, which begins with Agent Zero (Book 1). 

When a minor terrorist group, looking to make its mark, aims to take out a “soft target” in the United States — one relatively unguarded yet which can be hugely damaging to the US — the race is on for Agent Zero to discover their object and stop them before it’s too late. 

Yet Zero faces his own battles: When he is targeted for assassination and someone close to him ends up the victim instead, it sends his life into a downspin, and allows him only course of action: vengeance. 

Will Zero be able to save the target — and himself — before he spirals out of control? 

Vengeance Zero (Book 10) is an espionage thriller that will keep you listening late into the night. 

Book 11 (Zero Zero) is also available.  

Also available is Jack Mars’ number one best-selling Luke Stone thriller series (seven books), which begins with Any Means Necessary (Book 1), with over 800 five star reviews!

Spec-ops is a family affair

Sarah needs some serious therapy. It's like no one recognizes this! Misha's turn around was also altogether too easy.

Frankly, the vengeance mentioned in the title and synopsis, takes a back seat to the little family drama. I had a hard time with the showdown between Sarah and the uber villain who has so much remorse and so many "honorable" rules that he lets his targets go more than once. It's all about vengeance, but the bad guy unbelievably backs off! Talk about zero vengeance.

This volume disappointingly kills off Maria on their honeymoon (sorry for the spoiler, but all the other reviewers also mentioned it), but introduces a new and up-and-coming character, a man this time. This just goes to show that the women can't really do the job and need to be replaced by tough men. I think I will like this fellow, but seriously, get Sarah some help, and get Mia a new outlet. She is also struggling with psychological issues.

I strongly disliked the choppy reading of all of Maria's and Misha's lines. This broken speech is supposed to express their accents, but just sounds stupid, and why would Maria have an accent anyway?

Just one thing.

I think the narrator is great. But he mispronounced Nassau all the way through.

Worst Book

I sincerely hope this is the last of Agent Zero book, as I will no longer be reading anymore. There was absolutely no reason to kill Maria. She was as important and interesting a character to the stories as Zero. Killing her diluted the story, making it less interesting for me. As far as I am concerned, Agent Zero is also dead

No, Not Maria

I can't believe the author killed off one of the most interesting characters in his stories! Still love Agent Zero, he has more lives than the Gray Man.

Terrible

Now I've read 10 Zero books. Some pretty good and some you want to ask for a refund. This is one of them. Callanan has improved, but he's reading a story written by an author who does all he can to destroy Zero's likeability and in whole, the the likeability of the series due to lazy writing. I do not want to give anything away, but Mars eliminates a primary character who added so very much to the series. Certainly there are characters that are likeable, one of those NOT being Zero. For the last 5 books Mars has basically used the same template in that more or less, it's the same type of crises. Seeing where Mars is taking the series is disappointing. After reading this book, I hope I can get the same type of implant Zero was given so I can forget I ever read this book.

Naive premise

The concept that there can be a trustworthy peace treaty between Iran and the USA is foolish and defies all known reality. There are a few countries that never give up their hatred of the West. Iran is one of them. They also keep their bargains only as long as they benefit.

This should have been called Tear Jerker Zero

While there was emotion in the earlier books in the series Vengeance Zero takes it to a whole new level. While this book has plenty of action it was the emotion of the book that caught me off guard.

Oofff. When will it end? (spoilers)

George Jetson (Zero) claims he's now retired. Which is good, considering the author retired 4 books ago. Misha, the skill laden 12 y/o assassin? Maya the suddenly X-Man powered super hero? Sara, the drug addled, PSTD dominated serial killer? Where are the limits of incredulity with these novels? Zero just flies planes into international airspace unchallenged? Weapons suddenly just materialize? Heroes just pop up in the nick of time to save the day? Magical ballistic clothing saves the day ... again?Tired. Killing Maria was a shock, and too bad considering her character was much appreciated in this cast of malcontents. Thankfully there are only 2 more books to endure in this hot mess of a series. Please.

Wimpy Zero

I gradually grew tired of Zero's internal struggles, his stupid mistakes & the constant wimpiness. When the author killed Maria I stopped reading. She was more interesting than Zero

Spoiler Alert - Dumbest Plot Conceivable

For a generally excellent writer, who comes up with plots and schemes heretofore unheard, this plot is probably the worst I've ever seen. Just don't get it. Jack Mars has in so many ways, terrific talent. One of the things wife and I have especially enjoyed in the last few books of the Zero series, is, that in addition to the main plot line, how he has built great life subsidiary stories around no less than five truly kick-butt women - how they have faced incredible life challenges and then risen to victory. No other writer I have seen has come close to pulling that off.

But in Vengeance Zero, Jack Mars blows away all of the good capital he has built. In an earlier book he followed the all-to-over-trodden path in spy thrillers - i.e. killing off the lead spy's (Zero's) wife, But then in this book, after taking three books to build up the character of this gorgeous blonde fellow spy to become his second wife, he kills her off on their honeymoon.

The main plot line is little better - i.e. a tough nut of a guy from Oklahoma (Oklahoma?) who teams up with jihadists??? to kidnap a former president??? Sure we all know we've got nut cases everywhere in this great country, but this idea, and then the silly dialogue coming out of this Oklahoman's mouth is totally off the wall

Sadly - after such great and inspiring promise, we're through with Jack Mars. With this book's astonishing 4.8 rating we're obviously in the minority. But for those who think likewise, head over to the John Milton series by Mark Dawson. He never disappoints.

Great book. Very lazy audio editing. Please fix!

The story, as always from an Agent Zero book, was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the reading performance. However I was highly irritated by the very lazy audio editing that had been done. Throughout the book, the ends of the final words in sentences would be cut too early, sometimes leaving you guessing what the word was supposed to be. It almost gets to much to bear from Chapter 15 onwards. I would highly recommend re-editing and re-releasing this book, so as to stop ruining the listeners experience. It's only because the story was good, is why I persevered to the end.
