Publisher's Summary

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.

Interesting but no cigar

Enjoyable listen but not near as good as his first book. Great insights into current R&D and future uses.

SciFi Thriller

I could smell movie all over this. The epilogue of notes should come first, because it really fleshes out some of the SF stuff in the complex story. Richard Clarke has written a better novel than his first thriller. The characters are cookie cutter but the plot pulls on all the sort of things he did as a top DC official: terrorism, military stuff, computer and internet security, etc. A great audio book for a long drive. The narration was very good. Made me want to look into the concepts Clarke weaves thru the story.
