Author: Andrew Watts

A nation on the brink of war. A conspiracy that threatens the globe. And one man, caught in the middle, racing to uncover the truth...

A CIA operative in Shanghai transmits two earth-shattering revelations to his contacts in Langley, and then goes missing. First, the US government has been infiltrated with Chinese spies. Second, an inner circle of Chinese leaders have set in motion plans to do the unthinkable - to invade the United States of America, and start World War 3.

Lena Chou is one of the few CIA officials who know the truth. Now, in order to prepare for what will come, Lena must put together a top secret task force known as a Red Cell. This group of defense experts will create mock plans for how China might invade.

David Manning is one of the experts. After he is abruptly taken to the covert island base where the Red Cell is held, Lena presents the group with evidence of China's imminent attack. But while the experts plan for war, David discovers a dark secret.

Not everyone in the Red Cell is planning for America to win...
