The return of the cutting-edge thriller series Net Force, created by Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenik and written by Jerome Preisler.

The number one threat to our nation’s security is in cyberspace. The new US president wants to tackle the urgent problem head-on and launches a top secret line of defense: Net Force. But before the organization can be announced, the country is hit by an unprecedented, two-pronged terror attack.

Not yet empowered by Congress nor embraced by a dubious intelligence community, still untested, unproven and officially unnamed, Net Force’s elite group of cyber experts and field operatives must lead the fight against the ongoing waves of hacks while tracking down the mastermind. Their failure could mean global catastrophe. Success may lead them to become the highest-level security agency in the United States.

A story that seems ripped from tomorrow’s headlines, Net Force: Dark Web relaunches one of the most prescient thriller series at a time when cybersecurity is more vital than ever.

Net Force: Dark WebNet Force: Dark Web by Jerome Preisler

A cyber “Net Force” intelligence team is put to the test before it even has an official beginning. The country is attacked and its up to the Net Force team to uncover not one but two plots of deceptions, with lots of twists and turns on the way and the threat of chemical warfare.
This was a 3.5 star read for me. I found the plot slow going with an extremely slow build but in the end, I was invested in the outcome…hence the 3.5 stars. Net Force had a lot of potential but the extremely descriptive writing style made the story lag.

I received this ARC copy of Net Force: Dark Web from HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing - Hanover Square Press. This is my honest and voluntary review. Net Force: Dark Web is set for publication Nov. 26, 2019.
