In Washington, the Kill Committee gathers in the White House's Situation Room to pick the next targets for the United States drone program. On the other side of the world, in the mountains where the drones hunt their prey, someone has decided to fight back - not just against the unmanned planes, but against the Americans at home who control them.

Traces the rise of the cyber age and profiles the characters at its epicenter, including criminals, spies, soldiers, and hackers.
