Operation Hail Storm - Brett Arquette (audio version)

I was emailed by Brett Arquette via Goodreads to see if I would be interested in reviewing Operation Hail.  Now as difficult as it is for me to refuse a book time is tight at the moment but when I realised I could listen to an audio version I decided to accept.

Courtesty of Goodreads Website
Marshall Hail was a husband, a father, a Physics Nobel prize winner and industrial billionaire. But when Hail's family was killed in a terrorist attack, he became a predator and redirected his vast industrial assets toward one goal, removing every person on the FBI's Top 10 Terrorist list. With the help of his MIT colleagues, Hail designed and built a devastating arsenal of attack drones of all shapes and sizes that are flown by the nation's best young gamers. The world will come to realize that Marshall Hail possesses the capability of getting to anyone, anywhere, at any time, unleashing an operation so disturbing that the CIA has named it Operation Hail Storm.

Operation Hail Storm comes under the genre of technothriller - not the sort of thing I would normally read/listen to.  The story is quite heavy with techno facts, the description of warheads, the eagle drone, etc are very detailed.  I have to admit that most of that went way above my head but locations were equally descriptive which made it easy to get a sense of place.  

Overall it isn't really my type of story but I think it would be popular amongst a male audience (just my opinion), and would probably make a good basis for a film.
