Publisher's Summary

There is evidence in the news almost every day: territorial disputes in the South China Sea, China's ongoing military buildup, cyber-attacks on the US government. It's this century's cold war...until it turns hot.
A CIA operative in Shanghai sends a message to Langley, and then goes missing. An inner-circle of Chinese government officials has set in motion plans to do the unthinkable - to invade the United States of America.
Lena Chou is one of the few US officials who knows the truth. Now, in order to covertly plan the US defense, Lena must put together a Red Cell, a group of experts who will plan how China could best attack it.
David Manning is one of those experts. But as the group creates a blueprint for war with China, he suspects that not every person among them is planning for America to win....

Great Story

Avid listener of the genre and this was a great story. Narration was pretty good and the storyline kept me eager to listen. Definitely worth a listen!

Asleep at the wheel

The characters in this book are the smartest, and brightest national security persons in the USA, but their powers of observation don't detect that they are surrounded by Chineese nationals. Imagine that, and it takes 2 chapters for someone to notice. The serniero is not very plausible, some of the solutions to problems remind me of the way college freshmen solved national defense problems dealing with problems in the 1960's. And sadly the theories in this book are about 56 years outdated...some interesting moments, but too few and none were revalations.
If you are just looking to burn off about 12 hrs listening time because you cannot find anything else here is a book.
Now the reader can make an interesting Australian accent in both a ship captain and pawn shop owner.

Predictable

Well, predictable until it went ridiculously all over the place. The best bit is how awful the narrator does an Australian accent!? Did he learn that in Ireland?
