Intricate details have to be orchestrated in just the right way to bring the story together! And Joel Narlock does it extremely well!

There are so many key players in this story...

You have the terrorists, the ones trying to help the terrorists, the ones being used by the terrorists, the ones trying to capture the terrorists, and the ones being terrorized by the terrorists.

Technology keeps advancing and with it so do the gadgets...

A man, trying to better the world and

Very good and believable. However, the author lists the '10 largest airports' but leaves out Denver International, which is the 5th 'busiest' and the 1st 'largest' at 34,000 acres or 54 square miles.

I enjoy reading these types of books. Drones are explained and the scenario given feels realistic. There was a lot of information given in the beginning of this novel which was interesting but it took me a while to get invested in the story. Once it took off, though, it was difficult for me to put this book down.

This is a book with terrorists, people from the NTSB, the DHS, a reporter and a professor from Georgia Tech who created the Entomopter drone to help with space exploration.We learn abou

Wow what a scary ride. It sets up a very realistic book in my mind. I hope Riley is wrong. I thought it did a good job explaining why we are such a big target for extremists. Why the airlines are so important for the economy. What Drones are and what they could do in the future.

The last half of the book I did not want to put the book down. The ending left me with a song going through my head. Sure left me with thinking a little different about that song.

The story for part of the book w

As new technology is invented, the question has to be asked what will it be used for? Will it be used for good, or does it have the potential to be used for terrorism.

When a new bird like flying drone, meant for exploration of Mars, ends up in the wrong hands, things turn deadly.

This fast paced suspenseful book about domestic terrorism plays out so detailed and with such realistic detail that it seems like it could have or could truly happen. The book jumps between the thoughts/actions of the t

Highly recommend this book to those that love suspense, terrorism, and drone technology. I knew nothing of drones prior to this read and it is frightful to know their potential. Very believable and leaves you with a fear that this actually could happen. I personally enjoyed the references and settings in Wisconsin, specifically South Milwaukee, my hometown and Baraboo, my birthplace. All would enjoy this book however, Wisconsin readers, would find a special kinship with the local settings. Canno ...more
