Zero Divergence, noun: no deviation from a course or standard.
After a key piece of evidence goes missing, a suspected serial rapist and killer evades prosecution. More than Royce Locke’s reputation is on the line when his investigation into the failed chain of custody suggests Franco Humphries might’ve had inside help. There’s no one Royce trusts more than Sawyer Key to help him right a wrong and uncover the traitor in their midst, but can they do it before the Savannah Strangler strikes again?
Relentless plus fearless equals flawless. Sawyer and Royce have come full circle—from hostile strangers to best friends and lovers. Neither a sniper’s bullet nor an arsonist’s fire could keep them apart, but what about a psychopath hell bent on revenge? The stakes are high, and there’s no turning back now because the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock.
Zero Divergence is the conclusion to the best-selling Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. This is a series you MUST read in order. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.
Trigger warning: Part of the storyline involves coming to terms with a friend’s suicide, which may be difficult for some people to read.

“Oh my god,” he said as the chocolate cake melted in his mouth. “I need this for every occasion.”
“I’ll bake it once a week if you promise to listen to orders from now on,” Royce said, taking a bite for himself.
Sawyer met Royce’s stormy eyes. “I’ll agree to that if you promise not to give stupid orders.” He opened his mouth like a baby bird, and Royce gave him another bite. It was somehow more delicious than the first.
“No more burning buildings,” Royce groused.
“It wasn’t burning when I ran into it,” Sawyer countered. “You ran into the burning building.” He couldn’t be mad at Royce, because chances were, he’d be dead if Royce hadn’t risked his own life to pull Sawyer out of the inferno.
They stared at one another in a silent battle of wills for a few seconds before a big yawn ruined Sawyer’s fierce expression. “We’ll resume this after I take a power nap.” Smiling, Royce leaned forward to set the plate on the coffee table, but Sawyer stopped him. “But not until after I eat more cake.”
Royce aimed a cocky grin at him. “Got you hooked now.”
“You have no idea.”
Have you read books 1 and 2? No? Stop. Close this window, go back, read them, then you can read this review. If you have read books 1 and 2, please continue.
I’m not going to rehash the first two books. But I definitely couldn’t wait for this one.
Sawyer is recovering from his burns while Locke is still working at trying to prove that a serial rapist and murderer just walked free. And there is a new chief of police and two new rookies he is babysitting. With the help of an eclectic group of people, we follow the trail.
I really liked how this book really delved into the plot. Who did it. Who helped them do it. Why did they help them do it. How are they going to catch them and PROVE that they did it. It definitely kept me turning the pages.
It got twisty and turny but all roads finally led to the well thought out conclusion. It was absolutely satisfying and not rushed or finished off cleanly just for the sake of it.
Don’t worry, fans of the sexy times. There was still plenty.
Locke also finally gets some closure surrounding Marcus’ death. It was difficult and painful and I shed some tears. But again, it was thoughtfully done and not just an easy answer.
This is a must read conclusion to a fun and engaging series.
