 Assignment Zero is a collection of five stories written by the reputed mystery author J. Lea Koretsky. The story by the book name "Assignment Zero" takes place in both Africa on Null Island at 00 on the map and Canada where U.S. Mail is stolen off a ship entering the Erie canal. "Soho" delves into two horrific crimes in New York — the bombing of buses on Front and First Streets and the 138th police precinct station killings. "Moon Over Giza" is about a family in the fashion industry on the Nile River. "Inquisition" is about a young man who trains for medicine as intelligence in Paris. "Dirty Money" takes up the therapy hour during which a bereaved widow learns staff has been killed at her Oakland workplace.
