Meet the Author

At one time, Tom Clancy was an obscure Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history and only a letter to the editor and a brief article on the MX missile to his credit. Years before he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red Octoberthe story of a Russian submarine captain who defects to the United Statessold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it “the perfect yarn” and “non-put-downable.” Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.



Clancy’s next novel, Red Storm Rising, took on U.S./Soviet tension by providing a realistic modern war scenario arising from a conventional Soviet attack on NATO. Other bestsellers followed: Patriot Games dealt with terrorism; Cardinal of the Kremlin focused on spies, secrets and the strategic defense initiative; Clear and Present Danger asked what if there was a real war on drugs; The Sum of All Fears centered around post-Cold War attempts to rekindle U.S./Soviet animosity; Without Remorse took on the rising U.S. drug trade and Vietnam War era POW’s; and Debt of Honor explored the hazards of American/Japanese economic competition, the vulnerability of America’s financial system, and the dangers of military downsizing. In light of the events of September 11, 2001, Debt of Honor demonstrated once and for all Clancy’s cutting-edge prescience in predicting future events. The novel ends with a suicide attack against the U.S. Capitol Building by a terrorist flying a 747 out of Dulles airport.





Clancy’s uninterrupted string of best sellers continued with Executive Orders, which combined the threat of biological and conventional terrorism with the instability of the Persian Gulf region; Rainbow Six, which explored the dual threats posed by former Soviet intelligence operatives willing to sell themselves to the highest bidder, and genetically engineering bio weapons; and The Bear and The Dragon, which posited a limited war between China, the U.S. and Russia.





Clancy’s nonfiction works include Submarine, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, Marine, and Airbornea series of guided tours of America’s warfighting assets. He has also written three books in an extraordinary nonfiction series that looks deep into the art of war through the eyes of America’s outstanding military commanders. Into The Storm: A Study in Command, written with armor and infantry General Fred Franks Jr., and Every Man a Tiger, written with Air Force General Chuck Horner, won unanimous praise for their detailed exploration of traditional war-fighting from the ground and from the air. The third book in the Commanders series, Shadow Warriors: Inside the Special Forces, written with General Carl Stiner, former commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, tells the story of the soldiers whose training, resourcefulness, and creativity make them capable of jobs that few other soldiers can handle, in situations where traditional arms and movement don’t apply.  







Most recently, Dr. Pieczenik has been pursuing the world of television films. He was executive producer and creator with Tom Clancy of the highly acclaimed Op Center miniseries based on the best-selling book series, and his and Tom Clancy's miniseries entitled Netforce. The television rights to his current novel State Of Emergency have been sold to ABC Pictures.

    Fun and action packed.

    This was a great book for the 'Techies'. This book illistrates how future wars will be fought through the computer.. And can be just as deadly

    Go buy this sure classic @ barnes & Noble

    Tom Clancy came out with another great book and a great series with that. I am a huge Clancy fan. I have read basically every book he has written, including Night Moves and Hidden Agendas in one day! You should definitely go out and purchase this one today. It has a great setting in 2010 when computers are the superpowers of the world. Alex Michaels is the main character in this techno-thriller. In this book, a computer genius is able to cause strokes to other people on virtual reality including one to Net Force's Jay Gridley. Net Force, a part of the FBI, is trying to crack down on this hacker and put an end to chaos worldwide. By the way, I'm tired of people putting reviews on that are just garbage, so if you don't have something important to say about the book, then don't waste your time.

    Good book, read it

    I don't care what other people say about this book, i think it was great. I am a die-hard Clancy fan, mainly he does not write little girly books, but guy books. Clancy is the only author that I will read willingly because he is a great writer and writes the kind of stuff that most normal guys like to read. Maybe he goes into alot of detail, but it is needed. This was the first Net Force book I read and I liked it so much I bought the first two and loved them as well. If you don't like it, that's fine by me because Clancy is a good writer. Some other people that reviewed this book expected it to be like Ops Center, when it is a completely different series from Net Force.

    NOT THE USUAL CLANCY

    The problem with this book is that it obviously did not receive as much attention as Clancys premier projects. The reading is fast (probably for the same reason) and easy. Its an ok book to pass the time but not something I wait for like his his Jack Ryan novels.

    Decent but not really good

    I have read NET FORCE, HIDDEN AGENDAS, and NIGHTMOVES. i personally would say that only a few things keeps a reader mesmerized in this book. But the ending is always exciting. But most the adventure and thrill are in the last chaper.... o well!!!

    I don't know what everyone else is complaining about...

    This book is awesome. Tom Clancy knows what he is talking about, and the action is fast paced and furious when it's about. He leaves time just for enough plot thickening and description, while also giving into some nice side stories which extend the book into (hopefully) future stories.

    very interesting book

    I started by reading this book (3rd book in the series) and it was so interesting that I bought and read the other 2 Netforce books. The authors do a good job of developing the characters and discussing the use of computer technology to track down the bad dudes ;-). I enjoyed the series because you got to know the characters and their interactions with one another. I hope they write a 4th book soon.

    Worst Reading Ever!!!

    This was my first Tom Clancy's Net Force book. It was so boring that I had to put in down when I read the first two chapters. The only best novel written by Tom Clancy is Rainbow Six. I don't recommend you to read the Tom Clancy's Net Force series.

    Blah Blah Blah Blah

    This book keep lagging on about stories that did not even include the main plot of the story. Many of them about some pretty dumb relationships. The ending was not as exciting as other Clancy books so to get to my point..Don't waste your time on this book.

    There Better Be Another Book

    Yes, this is another winner by Clancy, containing a little of everything for all readers. Action, romance, mystery... just enough to make you want more. My only gripe is that the ending is not fully resolved, and as my title says 'there better be another book' to follow up.

    Simplistic at best

    The story line is quite predictable, containing little development of high technology ideas but instead reverting to side stories about puppy love and adult temptations. This book can be read within hours and leaves one wondering why the hours were wasted. Quite disappointing.

    Just Could Not Put the Book Down

    I picked up the book expecting to read about a lot of over the top computer terminology and Internet functions. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself immersed with the events unfolding and with the character¿s lives. Clancy dose a remarkable job of illustrating the events that unfold by capturing the thoughts and feeling of he characters. Clancy, artfully is able to jump from character to character at just the right time, keeping the reader in anticipation. I thought it was a great read. I recommend it to anyone that is familiar with Clancy¿s work or has ever wondered what it could be like to be a covert government operative.

    I loved this book

    I thought that this book wasn't classic Clancy, but it was a good change of pace. I recommend that you read the whole Net Force series.

    The Thrill has Gone

    I did not like this book, and could not bring myself to finish it. Not only does this book bring out a lot of very old stereotypes such as 'bad British food,' 'well, they're the bloodly French, after all,' and 'why do you Brits have to drive on the left-hand side of the road?,' the book also uses this boiler-plate repeatedly. Enough! The characters spend a lot of time in office buildings. To be told about the architecture of the buildings, to endure very long pauses in the action, and to learn of the superficial, hackneyed personal rivalries of the characters, does not encourage me to keep turning the pages, or for that matter to buy another book like this.
