The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

Kill Decision

    The shocking techno-thriller that cements Daniel Suarez’s status as the heir to Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy—a terrifying, breathtaking, and all-too-plausible vision of the world’s near future.

Unmanned weaponized drones already exist—they’re widely used by America in our war efforts in the Middle East. In Kill Decision, bestselling author Daniel Suarez takes that fact and the real science behind it one step further, with frightening results.

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 without human intervention.

Together, McKinney and Odin must slow this advance long enough for the world to recognize its destructive power, because for thousands of years the “kill decision” during battle has remained in the hands of humans—and off-loading that responsibility to machines will bring unintended, possibly irreversible, consequences. But as forces even McKinney and Odin don’t understand begin to gather, and death rains down from above, it may already be too late to save humankind from destruction at the hands of our own technology.

Comment:I began seeing correlations between Doc Savage and Kill Decision maybe a quarter of the way in. At about the three-quarters mark (which is where I am at this point) I decided that the parallels were not coincidental when Odin, McKinley, and the rest of the gang are forced to flee the U.S. and end up in Mexico where Odin's mentor has retired to. And, it turns out, descendants of Mayans are living (and any Doc Savage fan will grok the meaning of this). Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz. ... I liked where the book ended up. The cat and mouse between the main characters and the people behind the swarm was interesting and a lot of fun. I also got a bit of Doc Savage and his crew vibe off the main characters, which always tingles my action-adventure senses.Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz. (e)
