A scientist and a soldier must join forces when combat drones zero in on targets on American soil in this gripping technological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Daniel Suarez.

Linda McKinney studies the social behavior of insects&;which leaves her entirely unprepared for the day her research is conscripted to help run an unmanned and automated drone army.

Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into a faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets without human intervention.

Together, McKinney and Odin must slow this advance long enough for the world to recognize its destructive power. But as enigmatic forces press the advantage, and death rains down from above, it may already be too late to save mankind from destruction.

Baker & Taylor
When her sophisticated research into ant social structure is conscripted by unknown forces to promote the design of unmanned weaponized drones, scientist Linda McKinney teams up with Special Ops soldier Odin to halt the progression of a faceless enemy that is preparing for an attack on American soil. 50,000 first printing.

Like his previous works, Suarez paints a frightening possible future from emerging technologies. He seems to have taken up the mantle of the late Michael Crichton. Read Micro by Crichton for a similar adventure at the microscopic level.

I really liked Mr. Suarez's first two books, in fact, I really loved them, but this book was far too status quoy, far too American Exceptionalistic.

I like Suarez's near future bent, but this offering fell short of his previous work in my mind. Couldn't quite suspend my disbelief.

Something about Suarez stories that really get me hooked. He is one of the best writers I know for taking current technology trends and advancing them to terrifying conclusions. The scary thing is that you are never quite sure how much of these events are already in the works.
