About Drone Strike

Karim’s family is killed by a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, collateral damage. The Islamic State in the Levant exploits his rage, recruiting him for a terrorist attack on the U.S., and only Anthony Provati can stop him. Drone Strike takes you on a fast-paced adventure across the Mediterranean, into Mexico, finally arriving in the States. Drone Strike explores the psychological realities that seduce Karim to commit an act of terror, includes a love story between Moslem Karim and Miriam, a Christian woman he defends in Turkey and highlights the plight of Middle Eastern and Central American refugees.

My Review of Drone Strike

Giordano Creates Another Fast Paced, Action Packed, International Thriller with Drone Strike.  I absolutely love the Giordano builds his thrillers and shares the characters' stories.  The author's research and attention to detail of the cultures and factions within the characters' worlds and homelands bring very realistic characters and plausible interactions.  With every section, as readers move between the various storylines and subplots--the settings and the character development grow and intertwine in a way that surrounds the reader with the novel from start to finish.  The pace of the book builds steadily and connects all of the various pieces and moving parts so well that while readers wonder how these pieces will fit together--they will find a completed puzzle falling into place.
 
Drone Strike is Complicated and Complex--but, Never Confusing.  Usually, a thriller has a good guy and a bad guy in some good vs. evil race to the finish.  This book takes readers on an adventure where they have to rethink and redefine the good guy/ bad guy relationship a bit.  The complexity of the characters and the plot create a well-crafted story that has many thought-provoking layers--but is so well crafted that readers may easily follow the entire story as it unfolds.

Would I recommend Drone Strike by Joe Giordano?  I enjoy thrillers, and I enjoy international/political/crime dramas.  I loved the author's Appointment with ISIL--and I think I liked this book even more.  Giordano has a way of taking current events and combining a host of characters and lives to create a very believable fictional work that pulls readers in and holds them to the last page.  If you enjoy realistic, international thrillers that transport you to other lands and cultures--you should read the Anthony Provati series.
