I received a free copy of The Ultimatum from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.

Dick Wolf's The Ultimatum is the third in a series featuring Detective Jeremy Fisk but can be read as a stand-alone. The savvy detective teams up professionally and personally with New York Times reporter Chay Maryland to hunt down a killer who is shooting a person every day until Verlyn Meritt, who has released sensitive information to Wikileaks, is released from prison. The story line is very contemporary and the use of the drones as a weapon intriguing but I felt the book fell short of being the suspenseful thriller it promised to be. There were far too many acronyms and boring techno talk for my taste. I felt this to be distracting and unnecessary and I skimmed through some of these sections. I would have liked to have seen a little more character development and a lot more edge of your seat action. ( )
