about Graveyard of Empires:

Software Engineer Drew Snider has a mind that remembers every moment of his life. Maybe that’s why he can’t let go of his ex-wife, Shanti, and why he still remembers the software he developed for unmanned flying vehicles for the U.S. military. Their son, Nathan, volunteers to go to war where he meets Ramiro Enriquez, a pilot who never gets to fly, but fires weapons in the Middle East from a desert in Nevada. When Ramiro is held responsible for a predator-drone friendly fire incident, how will the survivors piece together a future while absorbing a wounded past?
