In the wake of nuclear terrorism, a squad of elite soldiers must combat artificial intelligence and seek justice in this military political thriller, a sequel to The Red.
Lieutenant James Shelley and his squad of US Army soldiers were on a quest for justice when they carried out the unauthorized mission known as First Light. They returned home to America to face a court-martial, determined to expose the corruption in the chain of command that compelled their actions. But in a country still reeling from the nuclear terrorism of Coma Day, the courtroom is just one battlefield of many.
A new cycle of violence ignites when rumors of the elusive, rogue AI known as the Red go public - and Shelley is, once again, pulled into the fray. Challenged by his enemies, driven by ideals, Shelley feels compelled to act. But are the harrowing choices he makes really his own, or are they made for him by the Red? And with millions of lives at stake in a game of nuclear cat and mouse, does the answer even matter?

This AI is the one Elon Musk is worried about...

Turn you / him / her into a KILLER ROBOT! (What does Mr. Musk know he can't or won't say?) It's Ok, at least I can take it. Except there is another killer robot that faithfully makes appearances. OED pay attention! The new word here is "Dragon" that breathe fire from the ignition chamber of a LH3LOX lift engines. Examples of Dragons are Kim Jong-Un, Bezos, Musk, Goddard, Bigelow, and Israël. Space, Orbit, Off World, MARS! Sanity not required. Dragons want to go to MAR$. Excellent imagery to understand a world in perpetual warfare and the only escape is escape velocity. Hey, Elon, Jeff, Stephane -- let's plant 2 trillion trees. Screw orbit. Call me up and I'll tell you why. You don't need my number, you are a Dragon. You can send a car to my door?

Bring throughout.

I loved the book and really enjoyed the reading but there are a few occasions when he comes back from a weekend break where his voice is noticably different and the suspension drops a bit. truly terrific though.
