Zero Days by Ruth Ware | Review

Zero Days | Ruth Ware | Gallery/Scout PressPub: June 20, 2023 | Pages: 368

This book definitely started on the right foot, however, soon after it took a bit of a nosedive for me. The story kept me interested but the plot dragged, and it took so long before the action kicked in.

I’m a big Ruth Ware fan but so far, no other books have been able to compete with The Woman in Cabin 10 and One by One. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed this novel, and I can still count on Ruth Ware for atmospheric, binge-worth thrillers, but this one fell a bit short for me. 

With Jack being a fugitive, the whole book really was getting repetitive, and I just wanted something to happen. Hence, my 4-start rating.

Otherwise, I loved the cyber security and hacking aspect of this book. I’m a big sucker for heist novels and this one kind of resembled that genre. Ruth’s writing was impeccable as usual and she did a wonderful job at developing compelling characters and gripping narratives.

Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


An adrenaline-fueled thriller that combines Mr. and Mrs. Smith with The Fugitive about a woman in a race against time to clear her name and find her husband’s murderer.

Hired by companies to break into buildings and hack security systems, Jack and her husband, Gabe, are the best penetration specialists in the business. But after a routine assignment goes horribly wrong, Jack arrives home to find her husband dead. To add to her horror, the police are closing in on their suspect—her.

Suddenly on the run and quickly running out of options, Jack must decide who she can trust as she circles closer to the real killer in this unputdownable and heart-pounding mystery.
