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 US 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.

I enjoy a good techno thriller and this doesn't disappoint. I'd recommend for anyone who enjoys reading Vince Flynn and Michael Crichton.

I enjoyed the story, I feel it would have been better to read then listen to. The narration lacks any sort of emotion or feeling, I could hardly tell something big was going on as the narrator droned on. The characters are also hard to tell apart as they use almost all of the same voice, and the emotion (or lack) in the dialogue doesn't really match what's going on with the character.
