Overview

Drone is an exciting spy thriller: The paths of three men converge on London, when terrorists plan to use a drone for a devastating attack in the heart of the capital. The countdown has begun. Can Al-Qaeda be stopped before they tear the heart out of the British establishment.

Tony Falcon was a soldier with the British Army in Afghanistan, frequently involved in firefights where he fired blindly in the direction of the enemy without seeing them. More often than not the dead and injured he saw were innocent civilians, due to collateral damage. By the time of his next tour he had trained as a sniper, determined to kill only those who deserved to die, and to kill them face to face. After leaving the army he became a freelance assassin.

Amjad Khan was a farmer living with his wife and daughter in Pakistan, close to the Afghanistan border, and he had no interest in religion or politics. Then one day, as a result of a mistake, two Hellfire missiles were fired into his farm from a Predator drone, killing both his wife and his daughter. He escaped only because he was in the fields tending his goats. At that moment, Amjad Khan vowed his revenge.

Zemar Niazi had dual nationality, British and Pakistani. He was a brilliant computer expert, and had his career all planned out. Whilst visiting his brothers in Pakistan his father got into an argument with an Al-Qaeda member, who subsequently killed him. On the spur of the moment, Zemar Niazi joined MI5.
