Brad Thor meets Avatar in this timely thriller for the drone
age as award-winning author Christopher Golden spins the
troubles of today into the apocalypse of tomorrow.
After political upheaval, economic collapse, and
environmental disaster, the world has become a hotspot,
boiling over into chaos of near apocalyptic proportions. In
this perpetual state of emergency, all that separates order
from anarchy is the military might of a United States
determined to keep peace among nations waging a free-for-all
battle for survival and supremacy.
But a conflict unlike any before demands an equally
unprecedented fighting force on its front lines. Enter the
Remote Infantry Corps: robot soldiers deployed in war zones
around the world, controlled by human operators thousands of
miles from the action. PFC Danny Kelso is one of these â€śTin
Men,â€ť stationed with his fellow platoon members at a
subterranean base in Germany, steering their cybernetic
avatars through combat in the civil-war-ravaged streets of
Syria. Immune to injury and death, this brave new breed of
American warrior has a battlefield edge thatâ€™s all but
unstoppableâ€”until a flesh-and-blood enemy targets the Tin
Menâ€™s high-tech advantage in a dangerously game-changing
When anarchists unleash a massive electromagnetic pulse,
short-circuiting the worldâ€™s technology, Kelso and his
comrades-in-arms find themselves trappedâ€”their minds
tethered within their robot bodies and, for the first time,
their lives at risk.
Now, with rocket-wielding â€śBot Killersâ€ť gunning for them,
and desperate members of the unit threatening to go rogue,
itâ€™s the worst possible time for the Tin Men to face their
most crucial mission. But an economic summit is under
terrorist attack, the U.S. president is running for his
life, and the men and women of the 1st Remote Infantry
Division must take the fight to the next levelâ€”if they want
to be the last combatants standing, not the first of their
kind to fall forever.
