Zero by Morgan Dark Release Date: June 28th 2016 Rubiños 1860
Kyle Bradford is the envy of Drayton College, but everything takes a turn when a dangerous shadow, hidden in the darkness, starts to stalk him. From then on, his life falls apart. Unjustly accused of being the main suspect behind the robberies terrifying high society, he is forced to prove his innocence. And to
do so, he has to find the real culprit: Zero, an infallible criminal who keeps his identity hidden under a silver mask. What Kyle does not know is that his enemy is keeping a secret. A secret he would sacrifice everything for.
The police were the last to arrive. Five patrol cars. They
got out of their vehicles, some of them with pistol in hand, and quickly
regrouped on the stairs leading to the Los Angeles Opera.
By that time, the curious onlookers were already there. Most
of them were upper class. Exclusive spectators who, just half an hour earlier,
were watching the world premiere of Macbeth, and were now chatting amongst
themselves, speculating on the incident that had just taken place.
The journalists were there, too. As soon as the news leaked,
on-call editors came out charging and were now banging on the main door, armed
with their cameras and microphones. Their group included a young journalist
fresh out of college reporting on the occurrence for a local television station.
“It appears that another robbery has taken place. This time,
at the Los Angeles Opera. Owned by multi-millionaire Marissa Grossman, the
Empress Diadem has disappeared. For the time being, there are no witnesses. The
thief's identity is still unknown, but it is believed that he may be…”
“Look!” shouted someone from the group of curious
bystanders. They were pointing toward the rooftop of the Opera.
There he was: dressed in a form-fitting black suit, a hood
covering his head and his face hidden behind a silver mask with a smile frozen
in place. Like a shadow blending into the dark of night. Not a soul was unaware
of who the unknown man with that arrogant gaze was or what he had done over the
past few months. Even so, his presence provoked a certain strange fascination
that immediately drew everyone’s interest and attention.
