"Zero" by Morgan Dark is a really great suspense story. It follows the life of Kyle Bradford and also the burglar Zero.
Kyle is a student at a prestigious school. His parents are dead and he has been adopted by his mom's friend. Kyle's life is plush and he's set to inherit a fortune. He's happy with the life he has and doesn't try hard to get good grades.
Soon Kyle is followed by a detective who believes Kyle and Zero are the same person. Zero has been stealing big price items from the elite. At the beginning of the book Zero is almost caught by the detective. But Zero slips away leaving behind a valuable and paranormal object. At the same time the detective got a good look at Zero's face. It's the same face of Kyle and that's what has the detective sure that Kyle and Zero are the same person. But Kyle is sure it's not him. He was at the opera with his mom during the heist. But everything is not as it seems in this suspense.
I'll not ruin it for you by telling you all the twists and turns that happen throughout the story. Overall I just loved how this story was told and I even loved the second part of this book even more than I enjoyed the first part. The second part is more of a taking down the covers and we get a follow through of how Zero operated and why.
