9780544142848: Ghost Fleet: A Novel of the Next World War

What will the next global conflict look like? Find out in this ripping, near-futuristic thriller.

The United States, China, and Russia eye each other across a twenty-first century version of the Cold War, which suddenly heats up at sea, on land, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. The fighting involves everything from stealthy robotic–drone strikes to old warships from the navy’s “ghost fleet.” Fighter pilots unleash a Pearl Harbor–style attack; American veterans become low-tech insurgents; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta. Ultimately, victory will depend on blending the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future.

Ghost Fleet is a page-turning speculative thriller in the spirit of The Hunt for Red October. The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, it is unique in that every trend and technology featured in the novel — no matter how sci-fi it may seem — is real, or could be soon.

From the Back Cover:

I couldn t put this one down.Reads like the very best of classic Tom Clancy, updated for the 21stcentury, persuasive in its detail, simultaneously thrilling and terrifying.
Phillip Meyer, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author ofThe Son

Global war between China and the United States unimaginable? Hardly. Singer and Cole lay out a plausible, frightening, and pitch-perfect vision of what such a war could look like. This page-turning marvel is the best source of high-tech geopolitical visioneering since Tom Clancy sRed Storm Risingand Sir John Hackett sThe Third World War. A startling blueprint for the wars of the future that needs to be read now.
Admiral James Stavridis, US Navy (Ret.); former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, and Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy

A thrilling trip through a terrifyingly plausible tomorrow. This is not just an excellent book, but an excellent book by those who know what they are talking about. Prepare to lose some sleep.
D.B. Weiss, writerand executive producer of HBO s Game of Thrones

Nina Jacobson, producer ofThe Hunger Games

What makes GHOST FLEET so scary and so compelling is how real it feels. Want to see the future of national security? Get ready.
