Mistakes with drones

"Unmanned" tells a story of what a person might do if they make a mistake and it costs the lives of others.

The psychological novel is a story of F1 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole. He was reassigned from flying F1s to piloting Predator drones. After sending one of the drone missiles to strike an Afghan building he views a little girl running for her life. It's too late for Darwin to change anything and the next view he has is of the death and destruction of the missile. Maybe it's because he has a daughter about the same age as the Afghan girl, but he is haunted by his act.

He becomes a washed out drunk. He's discharged from the Air Force and lives in a trailer in the desert. Since he became a drunk, his wife takes the children and moves away. His only companion is his alcohol of choice Jeremiah Weed.

A reporter arrives at his trailer and convinces him to join her and two other journalists in attempting to find the person who ordered the strike. This officer called it a HIV high value target.

Cole joins the team and we follow him as he approaches a former member of the CIA and a man working in the Pentagon. He learns that the man who gave the order has gone rogue and his search intensifies.

As Cole goes about his business, he is being hunted by a man who is ordered to find him and once he does, to decide his fate.

Generally, in a thriller, I look for good action, suspense and drama. This book didn't measure up to the author's excellent  "The Prisoner of Guantanamo."

I like Dan Fesperman's novels and hope for more like "The Prisoner of Guantanamo."

I received a free book for an honest review.
