We rely on automation. Our cars parallel park themselves. The military uses unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance. We can't go anywhere without our phones. Our lives are ripe for hacking.
Not that anyone would.
When a group of high school friends meet at their 45th reunion, they discuss the hypothetical. With all these wireless networks, could someone hack a military drone? Unknown to them, a Russian spy gets wind of their idle chatter and plans to put their idea to the test.
Vasili Grigoriy Konstantinov commandeers a drone flying over Washington DC and terrorizes the National Mall with a low flyby. Then, things escalate.

Kreucher hits a home run
I have listened to many dozens of audiobooks, mostly in the car and mostly from authors I know well. This story ranks in the top echelon- the ones where when I get where I'm going I cant get out of the car until I finish it-or at least finish the chapter. If audio books could be 'page burners'-- this one would be on top.
I admire authors who can sneak story elements in on the reader. Kreucher did this repeatedly- the 'read' was nearly a road hazard.
Hoke's performance was well matched for the material. His distinction in voice between characters and his talented facility with eastern European dialects added significantly to the experience. At one point he scans a 'menu' of vodkas which, had I been reading, Im sure I would have scanned and not tried to articulate
I sat in the car in front of my hotel at the end of a trip and finished it. that says it all!
Kreucher's masterful character development, imaginative plots and world-class pacing made this his best effort to date. This one captures the 'audience' early and hold them captive all the way to the end. 5 stars.
