Troy Pearce is the CEO of Pearce Systems, a private security firm that is the best in the world at drone technologies. A former CIA SOG operative, Pearce used his intelligence and combat skills to hunt down America’s sworn enemies in the War on Terror. But after a decade of clandestine special ops, Pearce opted out. Too many of his friends had been sacrificed on the altar of political expediency. Now Pearce and his team chose which battles he will take on by deploying his land, sea, and air drones with surgical precision.
Pearce thinks he’s done with the U.S. government for good, until a pair of drug cartel hit men assault a group of American students on American soil. New U.S. president Margaret Meyers then secretly authorizes Pearce Systems to locate and destroy the killers sheltered in Mexico. Pearce and his team go to work, and they are soon thrust into a showdown with the hidden powers behind the El Paso attack - unleashing a host of unexpected repercussions.

I had to mark this one down because I did not much care for the ending, but overall it was a good listen. I think in many respects when I listen to a novel of this variety I am thinking that there will likely be a sequel. I am almost certain, however, that there won't be one here. I don't think this one is set up that way. It's an interesting premise and there were only a few things that made me go "hmmmm." Definitely worth a listen, but likely not to be your favorite book.
Mike Maden might be a successor to Tom Clancy. Drone is a terrific story with a great performance.
