Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jake Palmer accepts an offer from a defense contractor and his former SEAL teammate to consult with the company on the death of an engineer assigned to the top secret Perseus Project—the development of the navigation and targeting systems for an experimental Navy drone.

Two days into the case, Palmer finds Jansen shot dead in his office and vows to bring his killer to justice. What he discovers convinces him that both deaths are related to the project and that someone within the company is working with terrorists to seize control of the drone during a live fire test in Afghanistan. With no hard evidence to support his theory, he is unable to persuade either the company or the military that an imminent threat exists. After he falls under suspicion, his contract is terminated and the police are called in.

Pursued by the police and headed for engagement with a large, well armed terrorist cell led by the company insider, Palmer is close to defeat when he receives help from the most unlikely person. With only hours to spare, they race to stop an attack half a world away. The Drone Enigma will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you question every news story about drones.
