Coonts addresses the surveillance expertise of NSA and his fictitious Desk 3 in this book. The ability of the
government to impact another nation's computers and infrastructure is
hypothesized. Of course, I think this is
all speculative but how would one know unless perhaps you are Edward Snowden.
The book has lots of action and cutting edge tools of destruction. Again, I don't know if any of this stuff exists but the weapons and tech used are typical of a Coonts book, lots of whiz-bang and hooha!
The story is intricate and shows the value of "boots on the ground" when dealing with data collection.
