Karim’s family is killed by a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, collateral damage. The Islamic State in the Levant exploits his rage, recruiting him for a terrorist attack on the U.S., and only Anthony Provati can stop him. Drone Strike takes you on a fast-paced adventure across the Mediterranean, into Mexico, finally arriving in the States. Drone Strike explores the psychological realities that seduce Karim to commit an act of terror, includes a love story between Moslem Karim and Miriam, a Christian woman he defends in Turkey and highlights the plight of Middle Eastern and Central American refugees.
My first book that I read by Mr. Giordano was Appointment with ISIL. It is where I like other readers were first introduced to Anthony. That book was a must read. It was filled with tons of action mixed with a fast pace. I could not read that book fast enough. Thus I could not wait to read this next book.
This time, I struggled some with this book. My excitement diminished some. Don't get me wrong as I did like this book but just not as much as the first. Anthony is still my favorite. I was excited to see him. Yet, for the first half of the book I would say that Anthony's presence was not as prominent.
Miriam and Karim were fine. However, I did not have that strong connection towards them as I did Anthony. This is part of the reason for my lack of excitement. They were a huge part of this book. Now, if the focus had started like the latter half of the book where Anthony was featured more, than, this book would have been another fast read for me. Anthony can hold a story by himself as the main character.
Do pack your passport as this book will take you all over the world from Iraq, Turkey, Greece, Italy and America. While, I may not have enjoyed this book as much as the first, I would read another book from Mr. Giordano. I just have a wish list of more Anthony.
