Reviewed by David Ingram for Suspense Magazine. Dale Brown hit a home run with his first novel, “Flight of the Old Dog.”  He’s continued to write military techno-thrillers on his own, but has also collaborated with Jim DeFelice, co-author of the bestseller “American Sniper,” on the Dreamland thriller series. “Collateral Damage” is the fourteenth entry in that series. The book takes place just a little in the future. Once again Libya has fallen into civil war between the government that took over after Qaddafi and a rebel alliance under Princess Idria al-Nussoi. As before, NATO has placed a no-fly zone over the country and is enforcing it from a base in Sicily. A team from the Office of Special Technology has brought their most advanced plane, the Tigershark II, to Sicily for real-life trials in the field. The Tigershark comes with four Sabre drones under the control of the plane’s computer. When a flight of four Libyan government planes challenge the Tigershark, Test Pilot Turk Mako puts them down and then launches a retaliatory strike on their base. Inexplicably, one of the Sabres goes off the grid and attacks a nearby village with devastating results. Senator and former pilot Jeff “Zen” Stockard is asked by his wife Breanna, the head of the Office of Special Technology, to investigate the accident. Helping with the investigation is Ray Rubeo, the genius CEO of Applied Intelligence that provided the Tigershark/Sabre system. What they don’t see is the hand of Neil Kharon, a technology expert who is working both sides of the Libyan conflict. Kharon wants revenge against Rubeo and yearns to see him humiliated and broken. Once that is accomplished, he plans to kill Rubeo to complete his revenge. The Dreamland thrillers are the literary equivalent of the B movies that Hollywood used to make – entertaining, occasionally surprisingly good, but very much a genre piece. Those who like this style will like “Collateral Damage,” though readers who are just starting the series would be advised to begin with some of the earlier books.

Reviewed by Tamera Lawrence for Readers' Favorite Take a trip into the Air Force where high tech planes are being developed by brilliant minds. But when an unmanned aircraft drone Sabre kills civilians in Libya, fingers are being pointed in every direction, especially at the United States and the men who created the newest intelligence. The UN Assembly wants answers and it doesn’t help that the crazed drone was videotaped during the attack and being broadcasted on U Tube. Now as the airplane is torn apart to find answers, the investigation leads to darker revelations and the US is painted as the devil himself. As a broad array of men and women seek to find the truth, evil lurks close by with a twisted need for revenge at any cost. But with men such as ace pilot Turk Mako in the skies, things are bound to get complicated and downright dangerous for all. "Collateral Damage: A Dreamland Thriller" by Authors Dale Brown and Jim DeFelice is as high tech as they come with a broad array of vibrant characters and action-packed scenic descriptions. The authors show their expertise in the Air Force field as they bring this fast-paced story to life for an avid reader. Although this novel seems more geared towards men, I did enjoy the energetic storyline and the glimpse into the lives of a pilot and the dangerous warfare they often endure. It also gives a look into today’s technology and where it could be headed in the future. Great book by two wonderful authors.
