Summary
"In Washington, the Kill Committee gathers in the White House's Situation Room to pick the next targets for the United States drone program. At an airbase just outside Las Vegas, a team of pilots, military personnel and intelligence officers follow through on the committee's orders, finding the men who have been deemed a threat to national security and sentenced to death. On the other side of the world, in the mountains where the drones hunt their prey, someone has decided to fight back. And not just against the umanned planes that circle their skies, but against the Americans at home who control them. Clarke not only remains an active and respected presence within the national security community but also appears regularly as an expert commentator for ABC and other media. His insider's expertise is on full display in this breathtakingly realistic novel set within America's contentious drone program"--
Summary
When members of the Kill Committee drone program identify high-threat enemies in a mountain region on the other side of the world, their targets plot a retaliatory strike against American civilians on U.S. soil
