Summary

We rely on automation. Our cars parallel park themselves. The military uses unmanned aerial vehicles for surveillance. We can't go anywhere without our phones. Our lives are ripe for hacking.
Not that anyone would.
When a group of high school friends meet at their 45th reunion, they discuss the hypothetical. With all these wireless networks, could someone hack a military drone? Unknown to them, a Russian spy gets wind of their idle chatter and plans to put their idea to the test.
Vasili Grigoriy Konstantinov commandeers a drone flying over Washington DC and terrorizes the National Mall with a low flyby. Then, things escalate.

Drone brings Spy novels bang up to date

If you could sum up Drone in three words, what would they be?

A riveting read

What was one of the most memorable moments of Drone?

The moment when "Sam" manages to outwit his Russian captor when he ( and myself too) least expected

Have you listened to any of Samuel E. Hoke’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Samuel E Hoke is new to me, but I am from England and this is my first audio book, so I cannot compare to his other work. However, he managed to bring this exquisite novel to life, his ability to handle the Eastern European accents was superb.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Drone , dark forces on the move in Michigan

Any additional comments?

This was a wonderful way to enjoy my weekend and I found I just could not stop listening to the book. Drones are in the news almost every day in various world conflicts, and on sale in many shopping malls for the public to purchase. This novel brings the reader bang up to date with the technology and poses some very interesting question on their security and safety that many have probably have wondered about. Looking forward to the next Kreucher/ Hoke audio novel.

Kreucher hits a home run

Where does Drone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have listened to many dozens of audiobooks, mostly in the car and mostly from authors I know well. This story ranks in the top echelon- the ones where when I get where I'm going I cant get out of the car until I finish it-or at least finish the chapter. If audio books could be 'page burners'-- this one would be on top.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Drone?

I admire authors who can sneak story elements in on the reader. Kreucher did this repeatedly- the 'read' was nearly a road hazard.

What does Samuel E. Hoke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hoke's performance was well matched for the material. His distinction in voice between characters and his talented facility with eastern European dialects added significantly to the experience. At one point he scans a 'menu' of vodkas which, had I been reading, Im sure I would have scanned and not tried to articulate

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I sat in the car in front of my hotel at the end of a trip and finished it. that says it all!

Any additional comments?

Kreucher's masterful character development, imaginative plots and world-class pacing made this his best effort to date. This one captures the 'audience' early and hold them captive all the way to the end. 5 stars.

great fast paced book! very good narrator

Drone.
this is a great fast paced book. It its a great story about how if your conversation can be over heard it can totally be taken the wrong way and wind you up in a heap of trouble.
a few old friends are sitting at a dinner talking about how easy it could be to take over a drone, just fantasizing about how easy it would be, playing around with the idea, and BAM there world soon becomes upside down! scary how fast thing can happen
The narrator did an great job on this book! and I look forward to hearing more from him!


was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..
