Publisher's Summary

When mercenaries kidnap two drone operators and steal the software that can control drones anywhere in the world, Kate Allison is called to action to try and stop them before they can use the drones against civilians. A woman with a sordid history, Kate is trying to make up for past mistakes.
She teams up with the unlikeliest of partners in her mission: Lyle Goldman, the application developer who designed the drone software. He's her only hope of finding a way to shut down the mercenaries and figure out who is behind the attack. Unfortunately, Lyle is also being hunted by the FBI in connection with the stolen software and is being framed for the crime.
Can they stop this attack and clear Lyle's name before it is too late?

Short Techno-Thriller Rivals Full Length Novel!

This fast paced techno-thriller may be short, but delivers an action packed, thought provoking plot with intense pulse pounding moments, humor and interesting characters. It has all the classic elements for a awesome thriller, kidnappings, double crossing, computer hacking, and a devious plot, but also adds in refreshing twists, drones and a couple of unlikely heroes.

I find audios under five hours can be hit or miss, and this was a hit! For a short story, Lincoln Cole delivered a well written plot that rivals full length novels. I loved how Lincoln took the concept of a drone hi-jacking to use in an attack and ran with it. Drones are becoming increasingly popular, and it's a little scary, and not too far fetched to imagine this new technology being used to carry out attacks. This story follows several different characters. Two team up in an unconventional way to work together to stop a group of mercenaries from obtaining their goal. It's fast paced, never dull, and has great characters. Kate was my favorite, I loved all her dry humor.

The narration was fantastic! The editing wasn't a 100% perfect; however, Stephanie Dillard's performance was stunning, lively, had a great pace, brought each word to life, and she nailed all the accents!

I received this audio in exchange for an honest review. Overall, it's a great audio, fast paced, well worth the time, and an awesome KU/whispersync deal!

Fast Paced! Action Packed!!

This story may be on the shorter side but it's packed full of action, fast paced, and never a dull moment! Lincoln Cole doesn't waste anytime getting to the point with this one and grabs the listener right from the start. The story follows several characters and groups as each have their own agenda, some more evil than others. Kate our lead character has been doubled crossed but is determined to stop them. She was tough as nails, smart and hilarious! I loved all her witty sarcastic remarks.

Stephanie Dillard did a great job with the narration and brought the story to life.


This story was surprisingly better than I expected and very entertaining to listen too. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.
