T.L. Williams, author of the new spy thriller “ZERO DAY: China’s Cyber Wars,” will be at the Alachua County Library Newberry Branch (110 S. Seaboard Dr., Newberry) for a talk and book signing Monday, February 6 from 6:00pm-7:30pm.
Illegal immigration. A nuclear attack from Iran or North Korea. Gun violence. The growth of terrorism abroad and at home. What if, in this year of outrageous politics, government leaders have overlooked an insidious peril to our national security?
What if the greatest danger to America weren’t recruiters from ISIS but hackers from China?
CIA veteran T. L. Williams unfolds this chilling—and highly conceivable—scenario in his latest novel, ZERO DAY: China’s Cyber Wars (First Coast Publishers, February 2017). Moving between Chongqing, China and Langley, Virginia, this fast-paced spy thriller revolves around a plot by the Chinese government to seize the edge on global power by undermining the U.S. economy. Armed with an underground force of hackers, China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) has a mission: to destroy confidence in the dollar by launching persistent, aggressive cyberattacks on America’s banking system.
The CIA was so concerned about T.L.’s extensive knowledge about sensitive national security that it prevented the book’s publication for months while it vetted the manuscript for any classified information.
