When mercenaries kidnap two drone operators and the software to control drones anywhere in the world, Kate Allison is called to action to try and stop them before they use the drones against civilians.

She teams up with the unlikeliest of partners, Lyle Goldman, a developer who helped design the security system protecting the software. Unfortunately, Lyle is also wanted by the FBI and is being framed as a traitor selling the technology overseas.

Can they stop this attack and clear Lyle's name before it is too late?

I was offered a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.

A band of mercenaries kidnap two drone operators and gets access to a software to control drones all over the world. Fearing that they will be used to kill civilians, Kate Allison will try to stop them, and will count with Lyle Goldman’s help, who has been caught in the middle of it and framed for murder.

This is a relatively short novel but it is action packed, without a moment of boredom. For stories like this one I am used to longer novels, but Lincoln Cole has been able of capturing a quite complex story in under 4 hours. I would have liked more developed characters, but with this short length it was just not possible, and I think Cole is leaving things for us to discover in future books. The end of the book felt a bit rushed, but in general, there are not many idle moments. If you are looking for a thriller with an almost instant gratification, this is your book.

Stephanie Dillard  did a great job with voices, and especially with accents. Her narration was clear and expressive, and it was an added value to the text.

This is my second book by Lincoln Cole, since I have first read Ripples Through Time, which I also recommend. They are completely different books, but I see that Lincoln Cole excels at several styles. One thing is sure: you will see more reviews of his books here.
