Drone Strike is the second installment from the Anthony Provati Thriller series. I have not read the first book and feel this could be read as a stand alone. It tells the story of an Iraqi Karim losing his wife and children because of an American drone strike. He seeks revenge and is recruited to be part of a terror attack against the United States of America for The Islamic State. Anthony Provati has to find a way to keep this from happening. The reader will be taken from all over the globe from the Middle East, Central America and United States. I found Drone Strike to be a great read. I usually have a hard time following plot lines in a thriller and do not normally read thriller. However, I enjoyed reading this one. It is action packed and fast paced but not so much so that it is difficult to catch on what is going on. There were some scenes were quite violent that I did not care for. There were other scenes that made me see through the eyes of others around the world that put current events into perspective. I am giving Drone Strike four and a half stars. I would love to read the previous book in the Anthony Provati Thriller series to see what happened prior to this one, as well as, read any other books that release after this one. I recommend this for readers who enjoy a suspense filled novels that will keep them on the edge of the seat. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
Drone Strike is a first rate thriller and page turner till the very end. Joe Giordano does a masterful job of weaving several subplots together seamlessly. Nothing is black and white in this story. You will find yourself falling in love with Mariam, Renata, Anthony Provati and most of all, the very complicated character of Karim. I’ll leave it at that. Could be a great movie. For now, Drone Strike is a great book!
