New Novel From Air Force Veteran Turned Author Reveals Dark Psychology Of Drone Combat
Author Z. K. Rosson Immerses Readers into the Shadowy World of High-Tech Killing in his New Military Thriller
“I wrote this novel while deployed to Afghanistan during an especially trying period in my life, and I think that tone carries throughout the majority of the novel,” said Z. K. Rosson, author of Kinetic Sunset. “The major premise behind the plot is that when you take away the heroism, valor, and self-sacrifice from war—and the combatants lose sight of the desired end state—it becomes increasingly difficult to morally justify one’s actions. This realization rips apart the life of the main character and all those around him.”
In the novel, James “Brick” Houze is an inexperienced drone pilot who seems to have a good life. He is married to his soul mate and adoring wife, Claire. He is gaining increasing respect and responsibility at work as his kill count continues to grow. But everything starts to slip away when James is forced to do something he never thought possible, and he can no longer justify his actions. Now, he believes his government has turned against him and will stop at nothing to keep him quiet. You can purchase the electronic version of Kinetic Sunset at all major online retailers, including Amazon.
