    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    Story

    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
