GROUND ZERO opens 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 thinks:
The vast majority will blame the collapse on the crazy Arabs who hijacked the planes and the Islamic extremists who funded themthe 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 oneabsolutely no onewill guess the truth behind the who and the why of this day.
But years later, someone has started fitting together the pieces of the puzzle and anonymously posting her conclusions on the web. But she can't stay anonymous forever. Someone has traced her and 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 directionleft, right, up, down.
