I enjoyed the plot of Kill Decision. Very gripping. Daniel Suarez is at his best in describing techologies of our day and the extent that they could be used to horrific effects. He is a master at this, and this plot is very, very engaging. His characters in this book tend to veer to the two-dimensional side, so you will get the "stoic hero", etc...as much depth as a set of Star Trek characters, but that's not a slam, so much: sometimes a story is gripping with thin characters going in. It's simply "light" in this area.
Aside from characterizations, I'd say the weakest thing is the narration: the narrator is not bad, just generic. He has all the charm of someone reciting the fine print of the side effects in a prescription drug commercial. His accents are odd and confusing and takes one away from the story line.
Should you get this book? Sure, if you want a taut, gripping thriller with a believable yet fantastic way one is using current tech. Just understand the light characters and the lackluster narration.
