Donovan Nash, owner and operator of Eco-Watch, and his best friend and pilot Michael Ross were blind-sided by an attack shortly after their emergency landing at Boca Raton, Florida due to inclement weather. Michael was shot in the head and was hanging on within an inch of his life.
During the investigation into Michael’s shooting, FBI agent Veronica Montero accidently finds out the longtime secret Donavon has kept hidden. Twenty years ago, Donovan lived an entirely different life under his real name. When the love of his life was murdered, he changed his name and his looks and went into hiding until he could start a new life. Now, a movie of her life story was going to be released and Donovan was sure his secret would be exposed.
Now, this investigation threatens to ruin everything Donovan Nash has worked for during the last twenty years and one that could bring down his business, his family and his life. The unpredictable and dangerous Montero uses that information to get Nash to help her with her own agenda. The two are forced to work together to bring down a terrorist who has a devastating plan.
In the meantime, Nash’s wife is reeling from the discovery of his past life and must come to grips with all that was being revealed. Can their relationship recover after everything Lauren has learned about her husband? Is there more that she does not yet know about and that could cause harm to come to Lauren and their young daughter?
Zero Separation was written by Philip Donlay who also wrote Category Five and Code Black. The author has given us quite a ride with Zero Separation. From start to finish, the pace just keeps moving along with one twist and turn after another. It is a non-stop read that will keep readers turning pages late into the night.
The characters are well formed and believable, and the relationships between the various players seem real. Donlay is adept at using emotion to further the plot and keep the reader engaged in the story.
Zero Separation has enough action and depth that it would make a good movie. This is one of the best stories I've read in a while. Here’s hoping for more great books from this author.
