Overview

On the President's orders . . . one man is tasked with averting nuclear war

When the U.S. develops intelligence showing that Iran is in the final stages of assembling a nuclear bomb, the President orders Breanna Stockard and the Whiplash team to destroy it before the renegade nation can destabilize the shaky Middle East. Left with no other choice, Stockard sends young Air Force ace Turk Mako behind enemy lines. His orders: pilot a squadron of high-tech nano-UAVs from inside Iran to destroy the weapon and its assembly bunker. Turk and his accompanying Delta Force team succeed, only to discover another site and another device. With the fate of the region hanging in the balance, Turk and Delta Force must fight off Revolutionary Guards, Iranian MiGs, and the elite Quds Force to locate and destroy the second weapon. With time running out, Turk takes matters into his own hands, hoping to accomplish what no machine ever could . . . stop a nuclear war before it begins.

★ 03/31/2014
In this 15th Dreamland aviation thriller (after 2012’s Collateral Damage), Brown and DeFelice are at the top of their game. At the Dreamland base, a top-secret development area in the Nevada desert, Capt. Turk Mako, a test pilot in the U.S. Air Force, is working on a new drone project. Dubbed “Hydra,” these “nano-UAVs” (or unmanned aerial vehicles) are the size of a “cheap desk calculator” and shaped like “a cross between lawn darts and studies for a video game.” When the U.S. government decides that Iran’s nuclear efforts must be thwarted, Turk and his swarm of tiny drones are selected for a covert attack. Turk flies to Iran, links up with a Delta Force team, and destroys an underground nuclear facility. While the mission is an initial success, readers will know that Turk’s work is not finished so easily. The pages fly by as fast as the quicksilver drones while Turk faces one exciting, life-threatening complication after another. This can be read either as a standalone or a gateway to the rest of the Dreamland books. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (May)

ONCE I STARTED TO READ THIS BOOK, I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I FINISHED IT. IT IS A TYPICAL DALE BROWN BOOK WHICH KEEPS UP THE SUPPENSE UNTIL THE END. I COMPLETELY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. DALE BROWN HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE AUTHOR AND I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO READ HIS NEXT BOOK.

Really, really bad. Poor character development, all the personalities come out flat, no dimension. The editing is appalling. For example, at one point an aircraft is flying at "X" meters above the ground and moving at "Y" kilometers per hour. Then, two pages later another aircraft is flying at "A" FEET above the ground at "B" miles per hour. Another example is a chapter titled "3 Days Later" yet in the first paragraph the primary character is described as being at a facility for 5 days. Make up your mind. I do not know who really wrote the book, suffice to say that I would really like to have my $10 back.

Yes, very good read, storyline laid out well, and left one wondering what was happening on the ground while we were taken back to Washington's handling of the situation at hand.

Love all of the Dreamland series but DRONE STRIKE just somehow seemed to really be up my alley. Know what I mean? The plot, story line etc. just seemed to be above the rest. Series just keeps getting better with each new book. Keep it up.

Very enjoyable read. A few that's impossible moments, but an excellent story line for today's times.
