First in a new series for me! I am an avid Tom Clancy fan but thought these books were for teenagers. I was wrong and I enjoyed the book immensely. Lots of characters, some that will continue through the series, I am sure. Net Force is a branch of the FBI in the year 2010. Some of the technology in this book is even more advanced than what we have now and probably won't have in 2010. Still, great computer software that is mostly virtual reality. The VR is so real that I sometimes had a hard time realizing that was what was happening...not RL (real life) stuff. I am looking forward to continuing to read this series.
