Described by the Smithsonian as one of the nation’s 100 leading innovators, Peter Singer is Strategist at New America, having previously held posts at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Harvard University and as the founding director of the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at Brookings. More recently, Singer has become known as the author of multiple best-selling, award winning books. No author, living or dead, has more books on the professional military readings lists.

With every tech, trend, and scene drawn from the real world, Burn-In blends a techno thriller’s excitement with nonfiction’s insight to illuminate the darkest corners of our chilling tomorrow.
