About the Author
As a young student living in the suburbs of Dallas at the time of the Kennedy assassination D.W. Maroney grew up on a steady diet of conspiracy theories. To this day, D.W. still loves a good mystery and believes the truth of any event lies somewhere between the eyewitness accounts and the historical retelling. D.W. admits to being the only student who paid attention when the school librarian explained the use of the card catalog and other research materials. Where others saw only tedium, D.W. saw clues that would lead to fascinating facts hidden within the tomes and periodicals lining the shelves. During downtime, D.W. enjoys sorting through piles of musty old papers, scouring the depths of the internet, and looking for the one thing everyone else has overlooked.

I, surprisingly, liked this book. I received this through a BookTrib giveaway from the author. The author, DW Maroney, takes the Malaysia Airlines tragedy from several years ago, adds the possibility of a drone theory, and writes a complete novel. Because of the real-life tragedy, I was not sure if I would enjoy this type of novel. The main character, Megan Sloan, is in the Air Force and has some difficult times while enlisted. To make matters more frustrating, one of her team finds a missing plane that is possibly taken over by a drone from another country. On that plane is her ex-lover who had left her to die on another mission. DW Maroney developed the characters well. The storyline does go back and forth between the plane, Meagan's team, and the President's office. No confusion here and the plot moves quickly. (view spoiler) The characters are military or in politics. Those that do not have a military background. Drone theory, politics regarding homeland security and foreign policy. This is why I was surprised. This is not my typical read. Maroney did win me over with this novel. If the subject is not your "usual", try it. You may be surprised to find another good author. ****This novel was received from the author through a Booktrib giveaway. ****
If you want your adrenaline climbing in anticipation of what’s to come, then this thriller is for you. Planes have been disappearing around the world without a trace -- three within a one-year time-span, which is way too many. Former military field operative, Major Megan Sloan, is now the Advisor to the Government’s Drone Theory Task Force. She and her team have been desperately trying to find out how and why planes and their passengers are vanishing – there one minute, gone the next – and have been unsuccessful until the puppet of a madman finds his conscience while targeting two more planes. There are many characters in this story from the government and military, and even a former hacker, that come together to try to solve the mystery and prevent another catastrophe from occurring. I was angry and sad and hoping and praying throughout the chapters of this book. I also learned a lot as well. The story is so believable, that I may never fly across the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans for any reason. I wanted to hurry up and get to the end, while at the same time hoping it would never end. You’d never know this was the author’s first thriller because, in my opinion, it was brilliantly written. The ending has me wondering if there could be a sequel, and I would say “yes, please”, to that. Well done, D.W. Maroney.
