Book #3 in the Alex Hoffmann series (published 2015)
Cold War II has started with a vengeance. Or, as the American president calls it, Cold War 2.0, reflecting the impact technology has in the new age of espionage. The United States is now in the crosshairs of a renewed, unstoppable enemy intelligence operation.
At Langley, a report causes turbulence, as it predicts Russia’s inconceivable plans based on apparently random incursions into other countries’ territorial space. In Moscow, the relentless Russian president and his key military leader are planning retaliation for the Crimea sanctions.
America’s newest weapons system, the laser cannon, is ready to be installed on a Zumwalt-class stealth destroyer. This weapon has the ability to change the balance of power in the world, and give America and its allies the upper hand in any military conflict.
But there’s a problem. Someone stole the weapon’s plans and is ready to hand them to our enemies. Espionage has a new dimension. Everyone is gettable.
