About the Author
Jackie Keswick was born behind the Iron Curtain with itchy feet, a bent for rocks and a recurrent dream of stepping off a bus in the middle of nowhere to go home. She's worked in a hospital and as the only girl with 52 men on an oil rig, spent a winter in Moscow and a summer in Iceland and finally settled in the country of her dreams with her dream team: a husband, a cat, a tandem, a hammer and a laptop.
Jackie loves stories about unexpected reunions and second chances, and men who don't follow the rules when those rules are stupid. She has a thing for green eyes and tight cyclist's butts and is a great believer in making up soundtracks for everything, including her characters and the cat. 
And she still hasn't found the place where the bus stops.

Jack Horwood hates owing favors. But when a simple day out to treat Gareth to the best oysters in England leads to a discovery of drugs and counterfeit money—things that neither Jack nor Gareth have the jurisdiction to handle—he has to call in help. Help that doesn’t come cheap, and that forces him to do something he promised himself he’d never do again—walk away from Gareth and the family he’s starting to make for himself.

Three months undercover is a long time. After missing Gareth’s birthday, Jack is determined not to miss their first anniversary. But coming home and being home are two very different things. So when he is asked to assist with a corporate espionage investigation, Jack can’t say no, despite knowing it will impact his already straining relationship.

Except, of course, he’s walking into a trap….

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Jack takes Gareth to get the best oysters in all of England and ends up in the middle of a hunt for some dangerous drugs that are flooding the market. Three months undercover, away from his family was hard and testing, but coming home was just as bad. When things start to come to a head at Nancarrow Mining, Jack just can't say no. And walks himself into a trap.

This is book three in The Power Of Zero series. You really SHOULD read, at least, book one, Job Hunt before this, also book 2, Ghosts will help, but not totally necessary. But I'd say read them both, cos they are really good :-)

After LISTENING to book one, but READING books two and three, I'm left a little out of sorts. I loved this, as I did book one, and two but it was missing a certain something. And this is a prime example of why I try to stick to one method when starting a new series. I should have waited for the AUDIO files of books two and three. I hope I still get a chance to listen to them because I have no doubt,
that my rating will increase to the full five stars, with Fox Ballard's narration.

The boys, Daniel and Nico are moving on with their lives as best they can. Jack and Gareth are helping as much as they are able with everything else going on. The undercover operation Jack finds himself
in puts a strain on their relationship, but its the problems at Nancarrow Mining that cause them the biggest problems and THAT still isn't fully resolved. 

My initial feeling that the child prostitution ring and Nancarrow Mining's problems were linked proved wrong, and I do so LOVE being proved wrong!

Is there another book?? I hope so! While Jack and Gareth are fairly happy now, I think they have a ways to go to get their happy ever after. And Daniel and 
Nico need a book! Preferably one each, but I have a feeling those two may never separate.

I really REALLY need to listen to this book, and I do hope I get the chance! because of that missing something...

 4.5 stars
