We have all seen the news footage of the strikes against the terrorist Taliban but don't really know much more. Richard A Clarke brings a thrilling and frightening clarity to the drone operations of the US Government. He details the fight against the terrorists in many guises, and how the programme has to continually evolve to stay ahead of the continually evolving terror groups. Using his extensive knowledge the author leads us through the policy, the procedures and reality of operating remotely controlled aircraft to eliminate terrorists, including the collateral damage and it's control. The kill decisions in Washington are explained and and the flight operations located in Nevada carry out the orders. The Al Qaeda group is now using contractors like the terrorist criminal cartels like the Qazzanis giving the story it's thread,

This is not a normal fictional thriller because of the depth of detail provided but it is a compelling and exciting read that does not try to preach any opinion, it is left for you to decide on.

Richard Clarke worked in the White House for over a decade as National Coordinator for Security and Counter-Terriorism. To me, that makes him a very credible author to write about acts of terrorism and the USA defending themselves. In fact, this book is so frighteningly real that it pulls you in and you can absolutely imagine that the storyline could be real and could even be based on fact.

I found the book to have some great characters. I liked Ray Bowman (and his romantic links with a senior female character) and I particularly liked Dugout and his techie/hacker role in resolving the plot. I was slightly dismayed that so many of the key characters did not survive as I thought this one novel would be a good starting point for a whole series - but maybe that is still a possibility? I would definitely read another one!

I received a free copy of this book through the Librarything early reviewer programme.
