Publisher's 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 unmanned 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 Sting of the Drone, a breathtakingly realistic novel set within America's contentious drone program.

Which part is fiction?

During the story I keep thinking which part is fiction?
While not every character get's it own personality this is a story that I've listened to from start to finish in one single session.
It makes clear that the world of conflict is much more complicated than at first sight visible. I can't wait to get to the next novel by mr. Clarke.

Interesting insight from an inside source

The part I enjoyed about this book was the unique insights which only someone who has been there can bring to this fictionalized account of the US Government's drone warfare campaign. As for the story, I would describe is as simple, straightforward, predictable, and just too conveniently wrapped up and decorated with a nice bow at the end. It's worth the read though just to learn more about how (with room for literary exaggeration) the real drone program works.
