    Drone: Not a romance

    I have to admit that, after reading the Prologue, I wasn’t quite sure about this book. It was a significant departure in tone & language from Mr Buchman’s previous books (I’ve read them all apart from a few short stories, Monk's Maze & the Deities Anonymous series) and frankly, I found elements of it a bit distasteful. Obviously, this was scene setting for a character & environment the reader wasn’t supposed to warm to (that worked!) and immediately informing us that we’re not in Night Stalker-land any more. I read a lot, across many genres, including those often categorised as ‘men’s adventure series’ (sorry, guys, you don’t get to keep the good ones to yourselves) so I’m not sure exactly what affected me so much with this but I continued to read somewhat guardedly for approximately the first quarter of the book. So, on to the pros: Drone introduces us to an entirely new and fascinatingly diverse cast of characters set in the new (to me) environment of aircraft investigation. Included are a bit of cloak & dagger political- military manoeuvring, some suspense, puzzle-solving detective work, highly technical explanations neatly underpinning the storyline without overwhelming it and enough teasers about our expertly drawn lead & supporting characters to make us come back for more. Matt Buchman always impresses me with his technical knowledge/research regardless of the story’s setting - I always feel I’ve learnt something that I didn’t know before (including new vocabulary) - and yet he doesn’t let that overwhelm the story; or more importantly, the characters. For me, every book succeeds or fails based on how engaged I am with the characters, because otherwise it’s just a textbook. In Miranda, Holly, Mike & Jeremy, ML has introduced us to an intriguing bunch with potential for many enthralling adventures. Buchman warns us up-front that this is not a romance; whilst not a deterrent for me, I suspect this series, at the risk of sounding sexist, may appeal to a more male-orientated audience. In conclusion, I may have started Chapter 1 a little warily, but I finished Drone eagerly anticipating the next book. Thankfully, I don’t have long to wait, with Thunderbolt due in December and Condor in February. I can assure you I’ll be getting my hands on them as soon as I possibly can! *I received a free copy of this title from the publisher in exchange for an honest review."

    Exciting Start to a New Series!

    Buchman has hit a home run with this start to his new series! Featuring strong women (per his usual MO), this thriller series appears to be a grittier, non-romance crossover from his popular Night Stalkers books. I can hardly wait for the next book and to see where Buchman takes this series! Warning: Contains occasional sexual references that will offend some readers. I received a free copy of this title from the publisher and am voluntarily providing my honest review.

    An Intense and Outstanding Suspense .

    I volunteered to read and review an advanced readers copy of DRONE . I was pulled in from the start . This story is one intense and intriguing rollercoaster ride of suspense . The characters are unique and interesting individuals . This story is full of twists and turns . It's full of deceit , dedication , good , evil . It's a well written story . I highly recommend taking the time to read and enjoy .

    Great beginning to a new series!

    I really loved this new book that begins a new series for Buchman. The story was interesting, I loved the technical details, and the new characters are very engaging--I can't wait for the next book in the series!!
