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. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved this book, I wish it was longer and kept going into more detail. I found the narration to be above average. Had elements of ReadyPlayer One and Neuromancer, but in and of itself it had a great narrative. Sci-Fi but not out of the real of near-term possibility. (the iOS app) The iPhone app is prone to loosing place, rewinding to unexpected locations I already listened to in prior chapters. I messaged app support and eventually they invited me to a new beta iOS app, which is much better! "
