Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must track down a nuclear torpedo before it unleashes World War III in this electrifying new installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

A group that sits with its finger on the trigger of a torpedo so deadly it could level entire cities. With millions of innocent civilians hanging in the balance, the Oregon’s crew must unravel a tangle of drug-smuggling routes and international conspiracies spanning from the Aegean Sea to the Indian Ocean, putting their lives on the line to find the weapon before its countdown hits zero.

Drone Free Preview
A free preview of Drone by Mike Maden including a special essay by the author. Complete with a fascinating international cast of characters and non-stop action, Mike Maden’s DRONE kicks off an explosive new thriller series by exploring the frightening legal and political dangers of drone warfare. Troy Pearce is the CEO of Pearce Systems, a private security firm that is the best in the world at drone technologies. A former CIA SOG operative, Pearce used his intelligence and combat skills to hunt down America’s sworn enemies in the War on Terror. But after a decade of clandestine special ops, Pearce opted out. Too many of his friends had been sacrificed on the altar of political expediency. Now, Pearce and his team chose which battles he will take on by deploying his land, sea and air drones with surgical precision. New U.S. President Margaret Myers won a hotly contested election on a platform of no new foreign wars. But when her only child and a dozen other American students are killed in a cross border assault by drug cartel hit men, she secretly authorizes Pearce Systems to locate and destroy the killers sheltered in Mexico. Pearce and his team of scientists and on-the- ground task force go to work, and they are soon thrust into a showdown with the hidden powers behind the El Paso attack, and risk igniting a full-blown shooting war with America’s most dangerous enemies – at home and abroad.
