Our first guest is 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 cyber-attacks on America’s banking system.
T.L. WILLIAMS retired from active duty with the Central Intelligence Agency in 2009 and now pursues his passion for writing. He introduced Logan Alexander in his debut novel,Cooper’s Revenge, a riveting account of the impact improvised explosive devices have had on U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and one soldier’s pledge to avenge his brother’s death. His second novel, Unit 400, follows a team of assassins deployed to track down and take out the Special Forces team that destroyed a terrorist training camp in Iran. He lives in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with his wife, Carol, where he is already working on his fourth novel. For more information go to his website at www.tlwilliams.com
