Sequel to: Zero sum game.
|Summary, etc.:|| "Cas Russel has decided to Fight Crime. She definitely doesn't have a cape, and she's working on the whole morals issue, but she does have a real-life superpower: with her extraordinary mathematical ability, she can disarm bombs or outshoot an army. But Cas's own power also has a history, one she can't remember - or control. One that's creeping into her mind and fracturing her sanity... just when she's gotten herself on the hit list of every crime lord on the West Coast. And in the crosshairs of her best, only, sociopathic friend. Forget saving the world - Cas may not even be able to save herself."--Publisher description.

In this follow up to Zero Sum Game (2018), mathematical genius Cas Russell confronts personal demons as she deals with the aftermath of taking down Pithicaâs global network. Despite their sometimes murderous methods, Pithica's psychic control enabled them to keep relative peace in the world. In their absence, crime in Cas's home base of Los Angeles is spiking, and she's determined to find a math-based solution. Unfortunately, her encounter with a Pithica psychic has brought fragments of her mysterious and traumatic past to the forefront of her mind, interfering with her abilities in a way that may be fatal. She has an unexpected offer of help, but accepting his aid could mean that Cas loses herself. Huang brings back several familiar faces and a few new ones as she explores Cas's changing ideas about good, evil, friendship, and family. This volume answers a few questions and raises many more, leaving readers eager for the next installment. Action and superhero fans will enjoy this story of a powerful individual struggling with questions of identity and morality. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
