    Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door. It is the world’s best-kept secret—and its most terrifying. Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the President of the United States.

    Tim Valenta says: "Unspeakably surprised; No regrets"
    "Excellent fast paced techno-thriller"
    Overall

    This book opened very strong and it didn't let up. The plot kept moving quickly, never getting bogged down. I liked the mystery of the story, it was unpredictable and different from a standard thriller. I look forward to reading more by Mr. Lee.

    The narration was good as well and supported the story nicely.

    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.

    Madeleine says: "What's that droning sound?"
    "Great Thriller, Fantastic Narration"

    If you could sum up Kill Decision in three words, what would they be?

    Military techno thriller


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill Decision?

    The first attack by the micro hunter-killer drones.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    One of his best, which is a very high bar.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this Suarez's previous novels you will like this one. And if you like this genre I also think you will like this. It was a believable and interesting plot, interesting science (swarming AI as a weapon), technology, politics, and military action. It has some surprises and moves along at a good pace.

    I really liked Jeff Gurner's narration. His voice characterizations were skillful and believable. In one part he does a guy with a Jewish accent speaking Chinese! Brilliant. His reading was perfect for this novel.
