Present Day Wall Street. Where intelligence agencies and the financial industry are strange bedfellows, and the two worlds are often intertwined in disturbing ways.

In this chillingly plausible, controversial scenario of a military/industrial/financial complex run amok, Zero Sum pits Dr. Steven Archer Cross against powerful financier Nicholas Griffen in a conflict that raises troubling questions about our markets and our government.

Racing against the clock in a chase that spans continents, one man’s battle to expose the Machiavellian machinations of a ruthless Wall Street marauder forces him into a financial jungle populated by every variety of unscrupulous sociopath – rogue intelligence agencies, Russian mafia oligarchs, drug cartels and terrorist networks.

As a white-collar game of chess transitions into a lethal real world cage-fight, Steven finds himself in a deadly showdown, where hunters can quickly become the hunted and blood is the ultimate currency.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Settle in and prepare to be both entertained and educated when you read the Zero Sum trilogy. Blake is an author who easily walks the bright line between reality and fiction, leaving you wondering where truth ends and the story begins.


Russell Blake is one damn good writer. “Zero Sum” is one of the best action/thrillers I’ve ever picked up. From the first few pages, be ready to lock and load as Steven Archer takes on a Wall Street manipulator and begins a terrifying journey filled with danger, death and double-crosses that would make Robert Ludlum cringe.


All I can say is wow. It is an exciting gripping novel centered around the greed on Wall Street and length one man will go for justice when everything is lost. It has action , romance, and a little tech for good measure. Give it a read, you’ll enjoy it.


Enthralling read! A lot of espionage/adventure thrillers need a “twist” or two to keep a reader involved, but not Zero Sum! Fast-paced and based on real-life issues, Blake’s word-smithing creates and builds characters with relative ease and intensity. Blake leaves the reader wanting more in the end.


If you ever wondered about the underbelly of our financial system, this is the book for you! Russell Blake takes a very plausible look at the mixture of the finance, intelligence and military communities! Once you start, it will be a hard book to put down!
