Summary

The Unites States and China vie for supremacy in the international marketplace as China seeks to become the global leader. A pandemic sweeping across the world send the markets spiraling into chaos, increasing the tension between the two superpowers. Armed conflict needs only a spark. Will China’s attempt to expand their territories into the South China Sea be the trigger that plunges the two mighty nations past the rhetoric and into a shooting war?

Disappointed by O'Brien for the first time

This feels like 1/2 half of a book. just starts moving along and then it's over. Disappointing by a author that usually gives you what you want.

Love a good WW3 novel.

The use of news briefs to set the stage was better than a dry, "here's the world now." The biggest thing lacking is any character development, however. It's missing that main character to follow along in between wider views. That wouldve added to the shorter page count nicely and made it a bit more worth the money. At least it's not another 5 hour, though.

Another great work John O’Brien

Once again John O’Brien has written a wonderful and riveting story. This one is of a different genre than I have read from him before.
His combination of technical detail and storyline work well together to make a compelling first book of what I hope will be a series.

Pretty good

It was a good story, I still done like MG as a narrator. I felt the story's intro was a bit of a "wink wink". The story could have mostly been taken from the 5 oclock news.
