About the Author

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn.” From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

Steve Pieczenik is an author of political thrillers and a cocreator of the New York Times-bestselling Tom Clancy’s Op-Center and Tom Clancy’s Net Force series. He received an MD from Cornell University Medical College and a PhD in international relations from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Pieczenik’s books are informed by his more than two decades as an international crisis manager and hostage negotiator in the US Department of State for the administrations of presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush.

Steve Perry is an author and television writer. A native of the Deep South, he is the author of more than 50 novels and numerous short stories, including The Forever DrugSpindoc, The Trinity Vector, and the Matador series. He also penned books for the Alien, Conan, and Star Wars franchises. A practitioner of the martial art Silat, he is the father of science fiction author S. D. Perry.

This book is very interesting, while not as action oriented as most of Tom Clancy's books, it is still entertaining. I found it to be an ok book, not great, but not bad either. i personally found a lot of the computer action which takes (the events with in cyberspace) place strange and confusing. However, all the events with in reality were entertaining and over all, i would have to say that i would recommended this book to any Tom Clancy fan. Hope you find this book entertaining.

I thought this was a pretty good book, i liked it because its an action book about the military. I kinda wish there was more fighting action in the book, but it was better than some of the other books that i've read before. So far im only three quarters of the way through it and im hopeing that it gets better.

Tom Clancy came out with another great book and a great series with that. I am a huge Clancy fan. I have read basically every book he has written, including Night Moves and Hidden Agendas in one day! You should definitely go out and purchase this one today. It has a great setting in 2010 when computers are the superpowers of the world. Alex Michaels is the main character in this techno-thriller. In this book, a computer genius is able to cause strokes to other people on virtual reality including one to Net Force's Jay Gridley. Net Force, a part of the FBI, is trying to crack down on this hacker and put an end to chaos worldwide. By the way, I'm tired of people putting reviews on that are just garbage, so if you don't have something important to say about the book, then don't waste your time.

I don't care what other people say about this book, i think it was great. I am a die-hard Clancy fan, mainly he does not write little girly books, but guy books. Clancy is the only author that I will read willingly because he is a great writer and writes the kind of stuff that most normal guys like to read. Maybe he goes into alot of detail, but it is needed. This was the first Net Force book I read and I liked it so much I bought the first two and loved them as well. If you don't like it, that's fine by me because Clancy is a good writer. Some other people that reviewed this book expected it to be like Ops Center, when it is a completely different series from Net Force.

The problem with this book is that it obviously did not receive as much attention as Clancys premier projects. The reading is fast (probably for the same reason) and easy. Its an ok book to pass the time but not something I wait for like his his Jack Ryan novels.

This book is awesome. Tom Clancy knows what he is talking about, and the action is fast paced and furious when it's about. He leaves time just for enough plot thickening and description, while also giving into some nice side stories which extend the book into (hopefully) future stories.

I have read NET FORCE, HIDDEN AGENDAS, and NIGHTMOVES. i personally would say that only a few things keeps a reader mesmerized in this book. But the ending is always exciting. But most the adventure and thrill are in the last chaper.... o well!!!

I started by reading this book (3rd book in the series) and it was so interesting that I bought and read the other 2 Netforce books. The authors do a good job of developing the characters and discussing the use of computer technology to track down the bad dudes ;-). I enjoyed the series because you got to know the characters and their interactions with one another. I hope they write a 4th book soon.

This was my first Tom Clancy's Net Force book. It was so boring that I had to put in down when I read the first two chapters. The only best novel written by Tom Clancy is Rainbow Six. I don't recommend you to read the Tom Clancy's Net Force series.

This book keep lagging on about stories that did not even include the main plot of the story. Many of them about some pretty dumb relationships. The ending was not as exciting as other Clancy books so to get to my point..Don't waste your time on this book.

Yes, this is another winner by Clancy, containing a little of everything for all readers. Action, romance, mystery... just enough to make you want more. My only gripe is that the ending is not fully resolved, and as my title says 'there better be another book' to follow up.

The story line is quite predictable, containing little development of high technology ideas but instead reverting to side stories about puppy love and adult temptations. This book can be read within hours and leaves one wondering why the hours were wasted. Quite disappointing.

I picked up the book expecting to read about a lot of over the top computer terminology and Internet functions. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself immersed with the events unfolding and with the character¿s lives. Clancy dose a remarkable job of illustrating the events that unfold by capturing the thoughts and feeling of he characters. Clancy, artfully is able to jump from character to character at just the right time, keeping the reader in anticipation. I thought it was a great read. I recommend it to anyone that is familiar with Clancy¿s work or has ever wondered what it could be like to be a covert government operative.

I thought that this book wasn't classic Clancy, but it was a good change of pace. I recommend that you read the whole Net Force series.

I did not like this book, and could not bring myself to finish it. Not only does this book bring out a lot of very old stereotypes such as 'bad British food,' 'well, they're the bloodly French, after all,' and 'why do you Brits have to drive on the left-hand side of the road?,' the book also uses this boiler-plate repeatedly. Enough! The characters spend a lot of time in office buildings. To be told about the architecture of the buildings, to endure very long pauses in the action, and to learn of the superficial, hackneyed personal rivalries of the characters, does not encourage me to keep turning the pages, or for that matter to buy another book like this.
