Minor viruses are eating away at the Net Force computers. The e-mail shut-downs and flickering monitors are hardly emergencies—but they’ve been keeping the tech department hopping. Same with the sudden rash of time-consuming lawsuits. No one in Net Force has a moment to spare, which is exactly the way Mitchell Townsend Ames wants it. Because when the shadowy mastermind lau ...more

Shelves: fiction, military
Whoa, was I complaining that they were too predictable? This one sticks to the formula, but only loosely -- there's a new co-author Larry Segriff with a more military POV, and everyone spends the book deciding to retire! The threat of the book is a wealthy lawyer who would probably be an admirable foe other than the fact that he's trying to take over the world and failing. He's busy suing Net Force for their military assault on CyberNation in the previous book, and probably would have won the c ...more
Good read, especially following after Net Force Explorer #11 (which I thought was this set of characters).

Fair amount of time invested in character development, especially for John Howard and Alex Michaels. The reason becomes obvious as the plot unfolds.

A little disjointed, especially because told from the perspective of so many different characters. Not my favorite in the series, but still a fun ride.

This is the last of the Net Force books that features the main characters that have been there from the beginning. In the end Alex, Toni and Gen. Howard all call it a day and leave the government behind. From the reviews I have read, the characters that take their place in the following books are not as interesting so this is probably the last I will read.
A bit of a disjointed story. There are a few loose ends and threads that seem to have been forgotten, or go nowhere and the overall ending of

i thought that this book was interesting... i hardly read science fiction but i really enjoyed it. it was in the year 2012 which is not that long from now. i was amazed at how advanded the tenhology that was described. i can barely use my computer and i strongly doubt that i would be to use the technolgy decribed in the book. i thought that the weapons that they used were at times good but also at times bad. in the story, a 15 year old gets acess to a gun and uses it but he use it in self defens ...more

As you probably guessed, I really like Tom Clancy and specially enjoy the Netforce series (yep, I have already done 1-6 and now 7). I enjoy the on-going characters in the series and how each book adds to their story.

This installment is about a key member of the evil Cybernation group who hires a hacker to release a series of viruses upon the net. Netforce (cops for the net; kinda FBI-like) use "VR" (Virtual Reality) to track down their subject and they use VR to do various analysis and data min

Disappointing. Killing the goose that lays the golden eggs!

Having read the Net Force books from the very start, they are now loosing their way.

ITS NOT written by Tom Clancy but by Steve Perry & Larry Segriff.

This is just not of the same quality as the first few books in the series.

I give this one a thumbs down!

i thought it was really cool i like the whole idea of tom clancy's books. this one in particular because it was set up like movie there was a lot of dialougue to keep the reader interested to see what would happen next. i would give this book who is into combat and who likes tom clancy's style of writing.

i did like this book because it was like talking about guns at some point and saying this is natural and i'm not too sure because it's confusing while it keeps on switching back on some things. But this is my first Steve perry book i read from him and i'm hoping to read more by him.

A very good book, fun to read, and although it's the first book i read from the whole series i didn't feel left out of the loop, very realistic and believable events made me really not believe it was written in 2003.

I only vaguely even remember the story. I do remember it being a letdown for Clancy standards. It wasn't bad though. Worth the time spent listening (& driving).

this book is getting on to my nerves... have no regrets in saying i am quitting reading this book.... haaaaaaaa feel so delighted after saying that....

I liked this Net Force book, but I am cautious to see how the series continues with the majority of the main characters leaving the story.

This book was very intriguing to me because a lot of events happen throughout the book. But the book seemed very confusing though.

Standardní kvalita, mírně nestandardní zápletka (hurá!), oddychové, předvídatelné, relax.

This crap is driveling, sensationalist, uninteresting, and uninspired. Boo.
