I grabbed this book up almost as soon as it was out as a huge fan of Daemon and its sequel Freedom TM. I was a little disappointed. Like the earlier books Kill Decision wants to explore the challenges and increasingly technological society poses to democratic society and again, as in the earlier books he manages to craft a pretty compelling thriller. His biggest problem came in making the two work together. There are fairly sizable passages of conversation where one of the other of the character feels like Daniel Suarez speaking to the reader about the dangers posed by drone warfare. If this happened in the Daemon books it was done artfully enough that I never felt it
That said, his ideas are thought provoking (though not as powerful as Daemon's) and the story is interesting. If you liked his earlier books, you will enjoy this, if not as much. Once again Jeff Gurner narrates ably
There are some Audible books where the performance is just so good you feel like you would have been missing out on something just reading it. Good Omens is a well written, funny and engaging story, and I am sure it would have been a great read on the printed page, but Martin Jarvis just knocked the performance of the Audible version out of the park
