In his ninth novel of international intrigue, the award-winning author of The Double Game dramatizes the new technology of war and the damage it can do—both to its targets and to those who command it. Focusing on a former F-16 pilot whose life has gone into a tailspin after an ambiguous—but traumatizing—incident in Afghanistan, the narrative delves into the treacherous world of today’s surveillance culture.
