The year is 2026. China has taken over as the world's largest economy, while the United States, mired in an oil shortage, struggles to adjust to its diminished role. Then, a surprise attack throws the U.S. into a chaos unseen since Pearl Harbor. As the enemy takes control, the survival of the nation will depend upon the most unlikely forces: the Navy's antiquated Ghost Fleet and a cadre of homegrown terrorists. Ghost Fleet is unique in that every piece of technology featured in the novel already exists or is in the works. Peter W. Singer is Senior Fellow and Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution and a consultant for the US Department of Defense and FBI. August Cole is a journalist and writer specializing in national security issues and is an Adjunct Fellow at the American Security Project.

From the Back Cover:

I couldn’t put this one down. Reads like the very best of classic Tom Clancy, updated for the 21st century, persuasive in its detail, simultaneously thrilling and terrifying.”
Phillip Meyer, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The 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’s Red Storm Rising and Sir John Hackett’s The 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, writer and executive producer of HBO’s Game of Thrones

"Ghost Fleet is a page-turner filled with thrills and chills, but it is also more than that. Drawn from real world trends in cyber tech, intelligence, and defense, it offers a haunting glimpse into our future that you'll find hard to forget." 
Nina Jacobson, producer of The Hunger Games

What makes GHOST FLEET so scaryand so compellingis how real it feels. Want to see the future of national security?  Get ready.”
— Brad Meltzer, author of The Fifth Assassin

What will World War III 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. But what if it ever turned hot? Ghost Fleet tells the story of World War III, following a global cast of characters fighting at sea, on land, in the air, and in two new places of conflict: outer space and cyberspace. Warship captains battle through a modern day Pearl Harbor; fighter pilots duel with stealth drones; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; American veterans are forced to fight as low-tech insurgents; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyberwar; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta. Ultimately, victory will depend on who can best blend the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future.

Ghost Fleet is a page-turning 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 book— no matter how sci-fi it may seem — is real.
