Recommended for: military fiction fans, Clancy fans, Steve Perry fans, men's adventure
Read in December, 2007

At this point in the series, the real date is catching up quickly to the date in the books, and what used to be sf is becoming current fiction. Because Perry made some unfortunate guesses about 2010, this book and the last involve a fair amount of backpedaling frantically to justify the technological advances that seemed reasonable back in 1995. Plus, he and Clancy were behind the curve in other areas, and he does a better job of bringing some of the tech up to date.

In this one, CyberNation (mentioned in the earlier books in the foreshadowing tone that suggested it would be a later plot point) finally makes its bid for world domination, or at least better membership numbers. While interesting, the books spends entirely too much time on the relationship between the two villains, which might have made for an interesting couple of pages, but with several chapters devoted to it, becomes somewhat boring. I would have wanted more detail on the cyber end of things, and less on the personal side, but hey, I'm reading a Steve Perry book. And he brings in capoeira! Very cool.
