Nagata, LindaLinda Nagata

True Brighton works for a civilian military contractor, actually a part owner of Requisite Operations, Inc., which provides international security, training and an occasional on-the-scene hostage rescue. Times have changed, though. She now has support from armed autonomous drones. They are faster to react than the best human soldier and make all the difference to the success of each mission. Danger to humans still exists. The drones don't always discriminate their targets. This book is full of tense action.
