Operation Hail Storm
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.
Marshall Hail is certainly one very interesting person. He basically lives on board the ship the Hail Nucleus, which is no ordinary ship. It has some advancements that no other country seems to have. And although technically American, Hail doesn't really cater to anyone. Kara is a rich orphan, basically. Her parents died along with Hail's wife and daughters in a horrible thing everyone calls The Five. Kara's CIA job brings her to the Hail Nucleus alongside Marshall. The two of them have much in common, but butt heads often. I really enjoyed reading this book once I got past the first of it. It was a bit slow at first to me, but the action and suspense definitely kicked up several notches after that. Great read!
4 out of 5 stars!
