Dick Thornby is not Hollywood's idea of a spy. In his rough and tumble job there are no tailored Italian suits, no bimbos eager to please, and no massive underground fortresses built by evil overlords seeking world domination - just an endless series of sinister threats to the safety and security of the billions of mundane citizens of the planet. Sure, Dick's tough and he knows a few tricks to help him get out of a tight spot, even if his boss accuses him of over-reliance on an abundance of explosives.

Net Impact is high impact. They story started strong, got me interested, then the plot and characters grew, layer by layer, far beyond what I had imagined. Mr. Bingle’s story combined with Mr. Pilkenton's multi-voiced narration created a cinematic visual that placed me in the middle of every scene. I learned about areas of the digital world I had never explored, but now feel I have been there.
Throughout the novel there are plenty of explosions. There are blazing machine guns. And there are urban myths that come to life. More importantly, there are real people who are faced with life or death challenges and dig deep within themselves to save the world, while also grasping at the remnants of a once normal life.
