"What Tom Clancy did for submarines, Richard A. Clarke does for drones."-David Morrell

In Washington, D.C., the Kill Committee gathers in the White House's Situation Room to pick the next targets for the United States drone program. At an airbase just outside Las Vegas, a team of pilots, military personnel, and intelligence officers follow through on the committee's orders, finding the men who have been deemed a threat to national security and sentenced to death.

"Sting of the Drone is a jet-fueled race through a world where the sky itself can be your worst enemy."-Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world-in the mountains where the drones hunt their prey-someone has decided to fight back. And not just against the unmanned planes that circle their skies, but against the Americans at home who control them. . .

"Insider knowledge of politics paired with amazing state-of-the-art technical details fuel this realistic nonstop action thriller."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
