As an F-16 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole was a family man on top of his world. Now he's a washout - drunk and alone in a trailer in the Nevada desert, and haunted by what he saw on the display of the Predator drone he "piloted," especially by the memory of an Afghan child running for her life. He reluctantly teams up with three journalists seeking to discover the identity of the anonymous - and possibly rogue - intelligence operative who called the shots in Cole's ill-fated drone mission. A psychologically gripping descent into the eerie realm of drone warfare, led by one pilot's quest to expose its darkest secrets.

Tightly packed novel with consistent characters, fast moving plot and competent editing to keep it that way. Good read. A bit thought provoking as a side benefit, what with all the surveillance technology pervasive today that our science fiction heroes of the past would never have dreamed of.
