Code Zero

They know everything you do . . .
When a teenager is shot dead after chasing a criminal in the street, investigative journalist Cynthia Bonsant is led to the popular social media platform Freemee, a competitor to Facebook whose lifestyle app claims to give you everything you need to succeed in life.
But there is someone who warns against its dangers: Zero, the world's most wanted activist, known for exposing the toxic truths behind social media giants and their pursuit of total control.
As Cynthia gets closer to revealing the mastermind behind Freemee, she herself becomes a target. In this world of hidden cameras, data glasses and hyper-smart phones, there is nowhere to hide.
