In Dale Brown's Puppet Master, intelligent machines take center stage as America battles the Russian Mafia in Eastern Europe.
Louis Massina is revolutionizing the field of robotics. His technological wonders are capable of locating disaster survivors, preventing nuclear meltdowns, and replacing missing limbs. After one of Massina's creations makes a miraculous rescue, an FBI agent recruits him to pursue criminals running a massive financial scam - and, not coincidentally, suspected of killing the agent's brother. Massina agrees to deploy a surveillance bot that uses artificial intelligence to follow its target. But when he's thrust into a dangerous conspiracy, the billionaire inventor decides to take matters into his own hands, unleashing the greatest cyber weapons in the world and becoming the Puppet Master.

I love books!
First time author(s) for me. The two authors have each written many books on their own as well as co-authoring another series. I assume this is the first in what will become a series in the techno thriller genre.
With this being the first book, much of the book is used to introduce us to the different characters. There are some gee whiz techno gizmos that are used to help solve the problems. The characters can use further development and the story lines fine tuned but it has the makings of a good series. I'll have to see what the second book is all about before deciding whether or not to push on.
