What if the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001, were more than they seemed? If the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center skyscrapers was a ploy to achieve something more insidious--and more horrific?

That's the premise behind Ground Zero, Wilson's next-to-next-to-last Repairman Jack novel. And the stakes just keep getting higher...

From official release/information:

From back of book: On September 11, 2001, a man drifts in a boat off lower Manhattan as the towers burn. He removes a small box from his pocket and presses a button. As he waits for the south tower to collapse, he things: The vast majority will blame the collapse on the crazy Arabs who hijacked the planes and the Islamic extremists who funded them--the obvious choice. A few will notice inconsistencies and point fingers elsewhere, blaming the government or Big Oil or some other powerful but faceless entity. No one--absolutely no one--will guess the truth behind the who and the why of this day.

Years later, someone does. Repairman Jack's childhood friend, Weezy Connell, has started fitting together the pices of the puzzle and anonymously posting her conclusions on the Web. But she can't stay anonymous forever. Someone is after her. Jack becomes involved in her troubles and in the paranoid mazes of the 9/11 Truth Movement, where conspiracy theories point in every directions.

They're all wrong. The truth is stranger, darker, and more evil than anyone can imagine. It involves the cosmic shadow war into which Jack has been drafted. And if the plot behind it--millennia in the planning--succeeds, it will change life on this Earth.
