Ghost Fleet

A Novel of the Next World War

"A novel that reads like science fiction but bristles with rich detail about how the next World War could be fought." —Vice
"A modern-day successor to tomes such as The Hunt for Red October from the late Tom Clancy." —USA Today

What Will World War III Look Like?

Ghost Fleet is a page-turning imagining of a war set in the not-too-distant future. Navy captains battle through a modern-day Pearl Harbor; fighter pilots duel with stealthy drones; teenage hackers fight in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; 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. But what makes the story even more notable is that every trend and technology in book—no matter how sci-fi it may seem—is real.

The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, Ghost Fleet has drawn praise as a new kind of technothriller while also becoming the new "must-read" for military leaders around the world.

"A wild book, a real page-turner." —The Economist

"Ghost Fleet is 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 of HBO's Game of Thrones

"It's exciting, but it's terrifying at the same time."—General Robert Neller, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps
