Against All Enemies warned about how we were conducting the war against terror. The Scorpion’s Gate demonstrated what could happen. And now America’s preeminent counterterrorism expert and number-one best-selling author shows us all ... what might come next.

The global village: an intricately intertwined network of technology that binds together the world’s economies, governments, and communication systems. So large, so vital, and so fragile. Now a sophisticated group is seeking to “disconnect the globe” by destroying computer grids, communications satellites, Internet cable centers, and biotech firms. Hard to do? If only that were so.

The major government agencies all lumber into action, but behind the scenes, the special projects office of the Intelligence Analysis Center knows that to catch unconventional terrorists requires unconventional methods. A small team, smart, agile, and quick, immediately starts to sift through a welter of often contradictory information about right-wing militias, Russian organized crime, Jihadist terrorists, and enemy nation-states, and chases leads across the country and overseas. But the attacks begin to come more swiftly and to grow in destructiveness. Soon they will reach the breakpoint. And then there will be nothing anyone can do.

Breakpoint is filled with technology being developed right now for a future just around the corner or, in many cases, already here—a technology certain to cause enormous political, social, and economic change. Will the changes be for better or worse? And what will happen then? The answers will surprise you.

Sometimes you can tell more truths through fiction.

    " Richard Clarke has doe it again - created a novel of fiction with such a believable story line that it can only be called "real fiction." Much of the technology presented in this book seems beyond belief but within the reach of science. The basis of the story in that how vulnerable this technology is is scary to say the least. It will surely open your eyes to see how close we are to our technology and how a few smart hackers could bring it all down. "

    " I'm not really into fiction but this cyberpunk novel was totally up my alley. It's a novel about cyber terrorism that is written by one of the world's preeminent counterterrorism expert. You can definitely see his own real world insights in the book. "
