Brad Thor is his recent novel intertwines financial warfare with his typical genre of terrorism. Sometimes non-fiction is scarier than fiction, because I'm also reading Shadow Markets currently. From the dust jacket, "The Pentagon has run simulations of financial warfare and the U.S. lost." Mark Lombardi captured these shadowy spheres of influence beautifully. I just wish he was still around to research and bring to light recent happenings.
