He will be assessing training developed for a team. It is, however, a team like no other, because only one of the team members is human; the other is one of the most intelligent and lethal systems ever built by man – the Joint Aerial Combat Capability or JACC. Loaded with the latest in detection and threat assessment technology, JACC is a silent, deadly hunter in the sky. Doc discovers, however, that JACC may not be the only killer on the remote, Nevada test range where he now finds himself. Soon, he is involved in a cat and mouse game with an unknown adversary. In this fight for his life and the lives of his friends, Doc asks himself, how do you match wits with the mind in the clouds, when you are not sure if you are facing the cold, exact logic of machine intelligence or the coldblooded urges of a human murderer?...

    I'd recommend this well-produced thriller to readers interested in military systems and the increasing reliance on artificial intelligence in the new types of weaponry. Readers who like a high level of realism in their reads will enjoy this book. I really enjoyed the second half of the book which is full of suspense, action and lively, realistic dialogue. I also really appreciated how the author concluded the book, tieing up all the loose ends. I don't like spoilers but I did find the idea behind the book quite frightening. The question raised of which we should fear the most - armed artifical inteligence or the capacity of greed and violence in humans - very interesting.The first half of the book concerns itself with explaining the technology behind armed drones, the chains of military command and the system of safeguards in place. Many readers will appreciate the details provided and say they gave an authentic feel to the book by explaining how such a sophisticated weapon could turn rogue. Personally other than where the background history of Sam, Marshall and Drew was given I didn't feel all the information was necesary to take the story forward. I'll be honest, much of the technology I didn't really understand and I found the fact I started to skip over some of it didn't damage my understanding or enjoyment of the second half of the book where for me, the real story started. Overall an enjoyable read which I think will be more fully appreciated by readers with a greater interest in technology than I have.

    I’ve read a lot of science fiction over many decades and watched my fair share of films dealing with robots, Artificial Intelligence and the moral implications of new technologies, but nothing with this depth. This isn’t science fiction, it is what is happening today, or in the very near future. It is the inside track of committees and contractual relationships, leading to a day of death and destruction. This is an author who really knows their topic and writes with the insights that only a real expert can. The technical detail permeates the story and lends credibility to the action. The author’s voice also matches that of the two main characters perfectly, as it has the restrained rationality of someone giving a measured view of a world on the brink of massive change.The first fifth is a slow build which establishes the main character, their work, and their romantic interest. A quarter of the way in, the book picked up momentum as it headed towards the main event and I was keen to get there. A few quick diversion into past events and finally the day of action. The main character is faced with the question of whether he is being hunted by man or machine and that question becomes the key to his survival. A final twist is delivered post action.The love interest does feel like a bit of a tag on and the long build up to the action may drag with some readers, but it all comes together nicely in the end.

    I was kind of wondering when someone would write a book about UAVs, drones, or whatever those things flying high in the sky that we can't always see. This author wrote about just that and he did a fantastic, if limited job. The main character, Sam Price, is a Doctor of Cognitive Psychology. And if you know what that means, then you're smarter than I am. So for the majority of us, I'll explain it. He's called "Doc" as a nickname that stuck when he went to work for a medium-sized engineering and research company based in St. Louis, MO. And yes, his doctorate is only one of the many that work at this firm. His specific are dealing with how the mind knows things, or at least that's my interpretation of what I read in the dictionary. How his doctorate applies to the story is a little sketchy for me, but just be aware that "Doc" is a very smart guy.He's kind of new to the business world so his assignments with this new company haven't all been leading edge work. He's hoping his next assignment will have a little more substance to it so he can prove his worth to the company. So, when he's assigned to study the training provided to the Operations Coordinator for the Joint Aerial Combat Capability (JACC) pronounced "jack". Of course, this is a military funded program since everything dealing with the military has an acronym. Doc will have to travel to Las Vegas and specifically to the Nellis AFB Test Range. There is a prototype JACC air vehicle in testing at that range.Of course, this sounds like a very exciting assignment. Unfortunately, it becomes way too exciting when Doc finds the pilot for the JACC air vehicle a dangerous person, not to be trusted. He also comes to believe that the civilian Program Manager for JACC is a bombastic politician who wants his semi-autonomous system to get fully funded. And this sets up a dangerous situation. You see, JACC is built for reconnaissance and attack. It can not only find it's target, but also take it out with highly effective weapons. The question becomes, who is actually in control?The writer writes pretty well. There are a number of places where I find his conversations more of a lecture. I don't think real people talk like he has them in his book. I've worked in the environment, he describes and even the tech guys didn't go around spouting a bunch of geek speak if they wanted anyone to pay attention to them. But, I guess the author does have to explain a lot of stuff to us laymen. We just don't ask the question of "why" often enough and we're usually satisfied with short answers. This story gives you a lot of in-depth answers, but doesn't solve the entire question of who's in charge?Oh, also, I did not know this was the second book of a series. That was never mentioned when I was requested to read and review this book. I have no idea what the first book is about.

    Sam Price is a cognitive psychologist who works for a company that assesses the merits and results of research projects as the “disinterested third party.” He’s sent to Nevada to a military testing facility to assess the training provided to the person who coordinates the use of a new type of unmanned aerial vehicle for use by the military. JACC, as it’s known, is an artificial intelligence capable of making its own determination as to who on the ground is hostile. While it can be operated by a pilot on the ground, it can also launch an attack based on its assessment without input from a human.I’m beginning to wonder if Bruce Perrin has used some of the new mind research to read mine, because he keeps picking subjects that already scare me! This is his second book in the Mind Sleuth series. The first, Half A Mind, dealt with brain research, which has creeped me out ever since I saw the first news story about it. Mind in the Clouds deals with weaponized drones and drones in general are the bogeyman in my mind. I think both brain research and drones will end up being like splitting the atom—lots of good uses, but also many deadly ones. I believe both will drastically change our world just as splitting the atom did. From the first pages of Mind in the Clouds, I dreaded what was coming, and when it happened, I was totally caught up in the action and excitement.Like with Half A Mind, the first book in the series, there is a considerable amount of technical description. Most is in the first half of the book and it’s needed. The only complaint I had is the second chapter rehashing what had happened in book one. I felt it somewhat confusing since there’s time spent on it, then it simply disappears. It had no bearing on the current story and I think the book would be better without it. Other than that, all I can say is that I love this series and I usually don’t care for techno-thrillers.I’ve read each book in the series as part of a Goodreads review round and was given a free copy of Mind in the Clouds in exchange for an honest review. Had I paid for it, I would have felt I’d gotten my money’s worth. I’ll be looking for number three.

    Keep your mind in the Clouds! They may bring danger!The book is amazing. It took me a while to get into it,though.It involves technology and I'm not very fan of the topic.On the other hand, the writer's background in psychology is paramount to lift the reader into the crime perpetrator's/ perpetrators' mind. (I would never spoil your pleasure)It's a tricky path that can lead you to the wrong person/persons.It happened to me. I couldn't decide for my suspect/suspects and when it was said and done I was like huh? Are you kidding Bruce?It's written in first and third person and it makes the story spin.The plot seems obvious but you get really surprised at the end.Everything could be perfect if I enjoyed technology better. It's not the book or the writer to be blamed.It's me and I would never tell you differently.Good Read indeed!

    ** I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.**'Mind in the Clouds' was one of those books that kept me on the edge of my seat. I love reading about stories that involve real life possibilities and the catastrophic results that could follow. This book was so descriptive and the creativity was astounding. I could picture the events happening as they played out. Very scary to be in the middle of technology going to the extremes. Full of action, detailed technological advances with the AI, thrilling scenarios and mystery. The characters were great. Sam was an integral player in the overall outcome. He's smart, intuitive and is an all around great guy. This book is a great add to your tbr list.

    In attempting to review Mind in the Clouds by Bruce Perrin, I feel like a teacher frustrated by a hugely gifted student who delivers monumentally brilliant answers peppered with strangely basic lapses. Perrin is an excellent writer. He has a facility for words, is very comfortable with them, and can pace his writing with effortless ease. He also has equal, if not greater, expertise in the language and jargon of technology. And therein lies the problem for many of his readers. His writing, for at least the first fifty per cent of the book, is somewhat stressful for the uninitiated mind. His technical explanations are clear and reach the brain on a surface level but probably will not penetrate the memory of most ordinary readers. And that is bad for the story. Any publisher advising a prospective novelist will invariably stress that the story is all. Get to the story right away, he’ll say. Publishers’ readers will rarely get beyond the first twenty pages of any MS without having already decided whether it goes on to the next stage or suffers rejection. So it is vital to grab the reader, and the publishers’ reader, early.Mind in the Clouds is based on a fascinating premise, even for those of us who are not technologically astute. What would happen if an Artificial Intelligence was left to make its own decisions about matters of life and death? From Perrin’s obvious expertise, it becomes clear that this is a problem that offers frightening prospects for the future. Unfortunately, the first fifty per cent of the book is so highly technical that it suffers also from a dearth of action and thus offers little to grab the ordinary reader’s interest. It does pick up a bit with the introduction of the off-colour Drew but it is well into the second half before he story takes off. Conspiracy, mystery suspense abound here, but is it a little too late for some readers? Other reviewers have talked about the story but I want to make one or two comments about the writing. I do not wish to be critical but it is these points that caused me the frustration I mentioned earlier.To begin with, Perrin needs to be more aware of the need for ‘show’ as opposed to ‘tell’ in his story-telling. Too much of what happens early in the book is third-hand narrative. This would be much more effective if the events themselves were allowed to transpire in the present tense without a narrator. For example, he rarely has an actual phone conversation with Nicole. He simply gives a summary of the phone conversations. This does little to engender empathy. We’d be much more informed, and interested, if the conversations were offered to us verbatim.The second issue is dialogue. And there are two problems here. Good dialogue is vital in any story. Perrin offers long unbroken utterances by various characters, many so technical that the reader gets lost. At the very least, the other person should drop in the odd, “You’re kidding!” or “That’s terrible.” Anything to halt the unrelenting flow of technological jargon. The reader’s brain needs these breaks to enable it to assimilate something of what is being said. Even without jargon, of course, dialogue should be short and pithy.The other problem is dialogue attribution. Writers are advised not to abuse their dialogue with widespread use of such unnecessary attributions as ‘he hollered’, ‘he snapped’, ‘he bellowed’. Neville Shute relied only on ‘he said’ and that worked perfectly. Perrin, however, offers no attributions at all. One long speech is followed by another long speech, without any indications of the emotional responses of the conversationalists, with the result that often the reader get lost and begins to wonder which speaker is saying what.I hate to sound so critical of what has the potential to be a superb techno-thriller but these issues were problematic for me. I still believe, however, even with these basic writing defects, that technology buffs will love this story.

    Fascinating study but with limited appeal.There is much to like in this book, but it takes a modicum of perseverance to reach it. I generally find it interesting when novels delve into pertinent contemporary issues, and that is the case in Mind in the Clouds. The story involves a cognitive psychologist doing a heck of a lot of psychoanalysis of a team working on a cutting edge drone project. It has a bit of a "Wargames" feel to it—evaluating the responses of man versus AI with respect to life-and-death military decisions—although not necessarily reaching the same conclusions.The author clearly has a great deal of knowledge on the subject, as well as real insight into the quirks of personalities and the dynamics of human interaction. The technical knowledge of how unmanned aircraft are controlled (beyond just the flying, including the more important decision-making aspects) that appears in this story is out of my realm of expertise, but the impression I have is that the author knows his stuff and would probably be an excellent teacher. This is a double-edged sword, however, because long stretches of the book have the feel of reading a user manual. It led me to wonder how important it was that readers—who learn as the protagonist has things explained to him—understand every last detail. I pride myself on being able to appreciate slower-paced stories, but this one was more of a trial than most.The writing, while not exceptional, is pretty solid. There is not much flair here, but neither are there many errors. However, there are two issues I see that exacerbate the problem of the overly technical subject matter. The first is that the author relies a little too much on "telling" rather than "showing." For example, a potentially romantic conversation between two characters about Chicago vs St Louis sports that led to a mock confrontation that caused tears of laughter would be so much better with actual dialogue and organic reactions. These sorts of scenes can bring a story like this alive, and I cannot help but feel they were missed opportunities.The second issue is a lack of dramatic conflict in Part I, which makes those pages difficult ones to work through. This section is mainly a setup of the overall story arc, meaning it lacks those short-term dramas that make individual chapters interesting. As an example, within the first 50% of the book, the two main sources of tension were a cordially strained workplace personality conflict and an unprofessional prank during which the main character was in no danger and only found out about after the fact. This type of conflict is subtle and nuanced, and will not satisfy any but the most engaged of readers. Which is a shame, because the second half becomes far more exciting and rewards readers who stuck with the story.The POV is curious mix of 1st and 3rd person. It is not exactly hard to follow, but somewhat unorthodox and jarring.Ultimately, I am glad I made it through the tedious section to get to the action and resolution. I found myself curious where the author was going with things, both with respect to the fate of the characters and what real-life lessons we could draw. Without giving too much away, I came away satisfied with both.I hope the author continues to refine his craft with respect to the issues mentioned above, because I see a ton of potential here.Readers looking for a turbocharged thriller will likely stall out somewhere in the first half, but those looking for a slower burn (as well as those with a particular interest in the drone program or group behavioral analysis) will be rewarded.I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for a fair review.

    This is another story by Bruce Perrin, and this one delves into artificial intelligence and who is control of it. It showscases just what might happen if we lost control of AI technology and it fell into the wrong hands, and it was very well-written and engaging. Sam is an interesting and fun character to follow, though I wish there had been a little less exposition for the entire story and it moved just a little bit faster. All told, though, the situation being presented is fascinating and terrifying, and the book is great. For anyone who is a fan of Bruce's other works, this is one you won't want to miss!

    I enjoyed Bruce M. Perrin's informative novel, Mind in the Clouds. The premise of the novel follows a young man, straight from college to a career which involves assessing training materials and technology. His first big assignment is assessing the training coordinator position for a piloted drone that can also be unmanned and make decisions based on the software embedded in it. The author does well in explaining this new, burgeoning idea of unmanned drones that have the capability to engage in war-time activities without military approval (basically, it can "decide" a plan of attack on its own). The concept is a bit scary for the average reader because it raises questions of whether machines could potentially decide they don't want to be overseen by humans and hatch a plan to destroy us for their own self-preservation. Many-a-movie has touched on this premise. The author definitely touches on this prospect throughout the entire book. I enjoyed the second half better than the first half of the novel because the first half was wrought with mundane details and conversations that didn't add much to the plot or character development. At the end of the book, I am not sure whether I really liked the main character or any other for that matter. The romance could have been done without completely actually. This book is in the gray area that books can fall into where they stop becoming memorable and the characters just fade away into the book abyss. Albeit, the character development was not there, the interesting concept more than makes up for it. While being overly technical at times, the author forces knowledge into the readers head that is actually useful and interesting! I feel like I've learned a lot and can be the smart girl in the room when the conversation turns to drones and the implications of military use. Of course, I'll leave out the fact that I received the information from a fictional source. All in all, Perrin had a great "whodunit" at the end that had me intrigued yet lacked unpredictability. Encouraged for readers interested in technology based novels.*This novel was sent by the author for an honest review.Raging Book Reviews

    I found the idea of this book to be interesting. It involved violence with a technology twist that made it unique to read. However, I found it hard to get into because the writing was a bit choppy. There were pages filled with chunks of dialogue that made the writing flat. I wish there had been more descriptions and less dialogue, but that is just my opinion. This would have made the writing more interesting to read.Since the majority of this novel involved in depth technology discussion, I did learn a lot about these new concepts. For example, drones played a large role in the story and I didn't know very much about them before. Perrin is very knowledgeable about these forms of technology as well as psychology and the human mind, and that did show in his writing. I could tell through his story that he was passionate about his work, but in the sections of the book where the writing fell flat I felt that he was waiting to get to a more interesting part of the novel. There was just not enough time put into certain sections of the book. I just think that if he went back through and added more descriptions and less dialogue, the novel would be stronger. All this novel needs is for the dialogue and descriptions to be mixed instead of separated, and that would take this novel from good to great.If you are a technology buff, this novel would be for you. It is written for intellectual readers and those interested in more information than fiction. This novel was good and I do recommend it to crime buffs.

    Mind in the Clouds by Bruce Perrin gives the reader a chilling look at the problems autonomous weapons with artificial intelligence could pose if they got into the wrong hands.In the opening scene, reminiscent of something out of The Most Dangerous Game, Drew, the crack drone pilot, delights in hunting down his prey by over-riding the unmanned helicopter/drone’s protocols. Later the reader learns that Drew has said that humans are the only big game he’s never bagged. And then there’s the incident where he leads Sam (“Doc”) to believe he (Doc) is about to be killed by the drone’s missile. So, of course, Drew is the major suspect when things go seriously awry during a demonstration of JACC’s (Joint Aerial Combat Capability) abilities before legislators, military, and a few visitors out in the remote desert base.But Perrin develops several other suspects as well. And there’s the possibility of a conspiracy. After a while, the reader, like Doc, is left wondering who, if anyone, is trustworthy. The appeal of the main character is his quiet, reasoned approach. He reviews the facts, considers solutions, trusts his instinct, and forms a plan.While there is a romantic interest and an old female friend, these relationships are peripheral. The story is a military adventure, with lots of technical information about unmanned weapon systems, their special capabilities and their real dangers.

    Much like the first book, the author clearly has a talent for writing. There is no disputing the amount of research and thought that has gone into this book. There is no skimping of details here, if anything, it is hindered by the amount of information included as it becomes dry and long to slog through with so much information and too little action to really connect the pieces. The books are highly technical and this one deal with AI technology and drones. With drones becoming so popular in both personal and commercial fields, this is a relevant and interesting read. The characters are complex, and the author clearly has a good grasp of character and plot. I was interested in the plot and found the characters, especially Doc and Drew to be well defined.The book gets very detailed, which kind of lost me in places because I had only a passing knowledge of much of the information. The reader is given all of the information that they need, but it gets dry and starts to feel a little bit like you are reading from lecture notes, not a novel. The plot itself is good but my issue with the book is mainly that it becomes too technical and it is too dialogue heavy, which bogs down the plot and disconnects from any action. I would like to see more action and less discussion and I think this would be a solid thriller with a broader appeal. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    What if we had artificial intelligence weaponry? We quite possibly have the capability in this present day… What would be the advantages and consequences? Would it be worth the risk? Perrin’s novel is a gripping inside look into this reality. A good look into the technological aspect of unmanned weapon systems, and how they function, demonstrating that the author is an intelligent, educated individual on the subject. I personally extremely detest modern day weaponry. It represents the uttermost selfishness and greediness of humanity. If you want to kill someone, shoot them directly with an arrow, not blow up the entire environment around them killing species, plants and animals as well. Modern day warfare is the definition of absolute disrespect, recklessness, and laziness in my opinion. But this is what we have come to… and Perrin draws in these facts of reality in this tale of man, trust, and technology.A unique technological thriller, filled to the brim with information, that keeps you guessing and questioning. Worth the read if you love intelligent tech thrillers with developed characters a hint of spice, romance and wit.

    I remember the New York World’s Fair in the sixties. I marveled at what might be a future of possibilities making lives better and advancing humanity beyond the simple. What never occurred to me was just how much might actually change and how it would affect all our lives – for better or worse.Bruce Perrin’s Mind in the Clouds gives you a glimpse into the worse. Sam Price is called upon to assess a military project called JACC, an unmanned aerial vehicle capable of seeking out hostile enemies and eliminating them—without any human control. Imagine having drones in the sky –protecting and serving. Feel safe? Although a little technical, the novel scares you into turning pages until the final chapter. I enjoyed Mind in the Clouds. If not for a couple of chapters that I felt were unnecessary and some technical information that had me scratching my head I would have given this a 5. Four and ½ stars for putting me on the edge.I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

    Very Intriguing PlotMind in the clouds begins with a very important premise; should drones be equipped with artificial intelligence?Author Bruce Perrin skillfully lays out the technology in this fascinating book, although at times, the writing gets a little dry and feels like your reading a white paper rather than a thriller. For me the love interest detracted from the overall story and felt a little disjointed. The dialogue just felt a little off at times. I think book would've been much better served had the author kept his focus on the technology which is where he excels. Overall this was an enjoyable read for an indie novel.

    A book for fans of techno thrillers, or for readers interested in the use of artificial intelligence, either in general, or more specifically as applied to military hardware. I found the book to be well written and well researched, but for a limited audience. My only concern would be with the conversational dialogue, which seemed stiff and formal, and somewhat unnatural at times, and not really a part of the story being told..

    I thought the story plot was interesting. A drone with AI gone bad. Unfortunately, switching between first person and third person was very distracting.

    This author clearly has a great deal of technical knowledge and is clearly excited to share it. “Mind in the Clouds” is a technically driven thriller, with a substantial amount of the information being highly complex.
