With Point of Presence, Rick Clyne serves up a satisfying thriller with a dash of cyberpunk.

Point of Presence surprised me. First novels, particularly from writers of nonfiction, can be disappointing, to say the least. Clyne, however, writes mystery like an old pro. Tom Corcoran is a slightly lost and confused hero whose stubborn desire to help an old flame drags him deeper and deeper into a high-tech plot to take over the world of commerce. From the first page, the reader is drawn into Corcoran's world. A very enjoyable read!
Excellent book that is current with today's techno threats. Point of Presence is a fast paced thriller that exhibits the dichotomies of our society, economic, social and geographic standard of living. Easy to read since it is written in first person and uses a conversational style. If you like the Faithful Spy or Daniel Silva novels you should like this novel as well.
