In David Bruns and J. R. Olson's military thriller Rules of Engagement, a terrorist breach of the computer systems of the three most powerful navies sets them on a collision course for World War III.
Three military superpowers. One cyber weapon. And no time left to lose. . .
One of the world's most wanted terrorists has resurfaced in North Korea. His enemy: The West. His mission: to unleash a series of cyber sneak attacks against the Chinese and on the U.S. Pacific forces--and do no less than destroy everything and everyone in his path.
"Fast and furious." --The Real Book Spy
Don Riley, head of U.S. Cyber Command, has just discovered that the Chinese have lost control of their military--and the same computer virus has infected the American network. Now it's up to Riley to track down the elusive terrorist and put a stop to his sinister plan. His secret weapon: a trio of supremely skilled midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy who can uncover the infiltration. But the cyber weapons are always one step ahead and, before long, a real-world conflict with human casualties begins to mount. . . and time is almost up for Riley and his team to launch a counterattack before World War III inevitably begins.
"With their background in the U.S. Navy, both Bruns and Olson have the right stuff to create a realistic military tale." --Booklist
