Vector Zero is a work of fiction in the thriller, action, and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Bryan McBee. The work is intended for the general adult reading audience and contains the use of explicit language throughout and some scenes of violence. Our protagonists are Shelly Christianson and Martin Fallon, brought together by the looming dread of an epidemic that threatens to wipe out civilization as we know it. What results is an engrossing tale of escaping danger, racing against time, and discovering the hidden agendas of the powers that be, sure to keep readers turning the pages from cover to cover to get to the bitter end of the action.

Author Bryan McBee has crafted a rip-roaring work of fiction with plenty of suspense, surprises, action, and dread to offer readers. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was its sense of realism, which immerses readers in the action from the whispers of dissent and fear in the surrounding crowds, through to the logistics, planning, and political overtones of the higher levels of worldbuilding. This creates a masterfully gritty and believable setting for Martin and Shelly to react within and react against, which helps their characters form sharp edges and tougher shells on their journey. The dialogue was also very effective, serving to display the unique traits of the characters whilst moving the plot forward in a natural way. Overall, I would highly recommend Vector Zero to fans of high-stakes military-styled fiction, race-against-time novels with excellent pacing, and action thriller readers everywhere.
