Dale Brown, the man Clive Cussler called “the best military adventure writer in the country,” will release his next novel–titled Puppet Master–on August 3o, 2016.
Puppet Master is co-authored with Jim DeFelice, who is best known for co-authoring American Sniper, the biography of Chris Kyle.
Here’s the plot synopsis:
In Dale Brown s Puppet Master, intelligent machines take center stage as America battles the Russian mafia in Eastern Europe
Louis Massina is revolutionizing the field of robotics. His technological wonders are capable of locating disaster survivors, preventing nuclear meltdowns, and replacing missing limbs. After one of Massina s creations makes a miraculous rescue, an FBI agent recruits him to pursue criminals running a massive financial scam and not coincidentally, suspected of killing the agent s brother. Massina agrees to deploy a surveillance bot that uses artificial intelligence to follow its target. But when he s thrust into a dangerous conspiracy, the billionaire inventor decides to take matters into his own hands, unleashing the greatest cyber-weapons in the world and becoming the Puppet Master.”
While I’ve been a fan of Dale Brown’s for a long while, I thought last year’s Iron Wolf was a disappointment. So here’s to hoping Puppet Master is better and brings with it the kind of suspense and mile-high action we’re used to getting from Brown’s books!
Puppet Master will be published by William Morrow, and is available for pre-order here.
