Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Clarke has served in the White House so his expertise in counterterrorism brings a sense of reality to what might have been just another technothriller showcasing the military and its high-tech weaponry. A drone is utilized on a Kill Call and explodes over its target successfully. But a survivor demands justice and is able to use his connections to put targets on the operators of the drones. Remote operators used to watching events thousands of miles away are suddenly being picked off one by one. Clarke does a terrific job showcasing how the drone program works and revealing something about the men and women behind the scenes who use the machines. Readers who enjoy learning about technology but who don’t mind that the characters are secondary will eat this up. Clarke’s name alone will guarantee some demand. --Jeff Ayers

Review

“Insider knowledge of politics paired with amazing state-of-the-art technical details fuels this realistic nonstop action thriller, the best yet from Clarke... [Clarke] has set the standard by which all such titles in this growing subgenre will be measured.” ―Publishers Weekly starred boxed review

“On rare occasions a thriller comes along that turns out to be prophecy: Sting of the Drone is one of them. This rip-snorting thriller may be the best unclassified peek you will ever get on the new high-tech offensive in the war against terrorism. A seminal, prophetic, troubling must-read.” ―Stephen Coonts

“This one smacks so much of reality you'll swear it's real. Written in a deft hand, by a man who knows what he's talking about, the take-no-prisoners plot serves up a banquet of high drama, action, and adventure. A great read.” ―Steve Berry

“It's rare a novel is written ahead of the headlines, but the plot of Sting of the Drone is just that book. If you've wondered what it's like to be inside the U.S. Predator drone program, your wait is over. Prepare for your hand to take hold of the joy stick, your heart to lodge firmly in your throat. Tom Clancy takes to the air. Put this book on your radar.” ―RIDLEY PEARSON

“What Tom Clancy did for submarines, Richard A. Clarke does for drones. Fascinating and frightening, Sting of the Drone moves as fast as the new kind of warfare that it depicts, with authentic details that only someone with the author's impressive insider credentials could know. This first-rate thriller . . . a cross between a techno-thriller and a docu-thriller, ought to be required reading for anyone who wants to know the current status of the battle against terrorism.” ―DAVID MORRELL

Sting of the Drone is a riveting page-turner that goes deep into the complex world of those who hunt with, and are hunted by, military drones. Rich with detail and informed by his expertise in national security, Richard Clarke brings this hidden world to vivid life.” ―JEFF ABBOTT
