Summary
Lieutenant James Shelley commands a high-tech squad of soldiers in a rural district within the African Sahel. They hunt insurgents each night on a harrowing patrol, guided by three simple goals: protect civilians, kill the enemy, and stay alive. In a for-profit war manufactured by the defense industry there can be no cause worth dying for. To keep his soldiers safe, Shelley uses every high-tech asset available to him, but his best weapon is a flawless sense of imminent danger as if God is with him, whispering warnings in his ear

Summary
"If robots were cheaper, we wouldn't have to be here," explains Lt. James Shelley, who leads a five-member linked combat squad (LCS). "Here" is a ravaged region of sub-Saharan Africa, where defense contractors have engineered a ground war to enrich their shareholders. Once an anti-war protester, Shelley joined the army to avoid a lengthy prison sentence and now wonders if he made the right choice. Set in a world of ongoing war where soldiers' brains are wirelessly connected to military intelligence, this violent, action-packed novel, with its cynical narrator and cutting-edge technology, may appeal to fans of T.C. McCarthy's Subterrene War trilogy. -- Description by Gillian Speace
