Overview

A Devil's Triangle is a cold, hard slap across the face of Americans, warning that the terrorist threat has not subsided in the four years since 9/11, but in fact has escalated. The U.S. is in an epic struggle in the defense of freedom and our way of life. A failure to identify, understand, and meet these security challenges head on could lead to an incident that would make the unspeakable horrors of 9/11 seem like a minor tragedy. With resolve, determination and a willingness to lead, America will successfully meet these challenges, and freedom will prevail. Terrorism can be defeated. Proliferation can be curtailed. The behavior of rogue states can be modified.

Linda Chavez
This book will scare you to death—but you must read it. Peter Brookes paints a frightening picture of the evil over which America must triumph—and will, if policy makers are smart enough to follow his advice.
William Bennett
A Devil's Triangle is a valuable read for anyone wanting to understand the emerging threats to American national security—terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and rogue states. With an insider's resume, Brookes has written an insightful book that makes sense of the complex, global security environment we face today, and explains what to do about it.
Kathleen Parker
Here at last is the book we needed, but—preferring peaceful sleep—didn't want [to read.] Peter Brookes brings his considerable experience in national defense and intelligence to describe the vast threat the civilized world faces from rogue states, outlaw regimes and terrorist groups [who have increasing access to ballistic missiles and weapons of mass destruction.] He reminds us that 9/11 was only the beginning of a prolonged war that will test our national will and determine whether we have a future to fashion. Never has it mattered more that we understand the scope of these dangerous new challenges, nor a book more timely and necessary to that understanding.
Senator Malcolm Wallop (R-WY)
Of all the essays, books, and treatises on the new world order of 'Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Rogue States,' Peter Brooke's A Devil's Triangle is by far the best. He not only presents a cogent guide for understanding this dangerous new environment but he offers solutions to the only nation who can lead the world's battle for survival. A must read.
