    Tom Clancy remains one of my favorite authors and Point of Impact is another installment of the Netforce (Number 5) series. Previously I have listened to the audio book version of several of the Netforce books. Unfortunately, I listened to them out-of-order that Clancy had intended. Well, a few months ago, I sorted the books into the order intended and have been listening to them again. I'm about half way thru the series. Since the Netforce characters continue thru the whole series, it makes alot more sense when you listen to them in order!Point of Impact follows Netforce's investigation of who is creating a new mega-drug. This drug gives the taker super-human strength for a brief period of time followed by a several day "crash". The only problem is that once created the large purple pills become inert in 48 hours after mixing the final components.Interesting idea for the book. Well written as always and fun to read (listen to). Soon, I will tackle the next in the Netforce series. I can always recommend the Netforce series and this installment is a must read. I do recommend you follow the series though!

    Good further development of main characters; could live with a little bit less about the firearm details, but that is part of the Clancy style, so just skim over those parts to stay on top of the story. Would read again.

    I thought this book was wordy, sometimes boring it just drug on. At times there was a religious aspect which I thought was unnecessary the overall story is just OK.

    The fifth Net Force book was highly amusing, though not one of Perry's best. The book revolves around a recreational drug that makes the user superhumanly powerful and quick, but tends to also cause them to go on murderous rampages. It's never quite clear why Net Force is involved, other than to let Perry go on a couple of drug rants, but still, it's got the cool characters, hot guns, and interesting scenarios typical of the series. The final military confrontation has now evolved entirely into a martial arts tournament, and I miss it, but otherwise the book is fun and pretty clever.

    The book is a sure thriller and I was recommended by someone who spoke very highly of the series. It is not disappointing and in 2016 the technology mentioned in this 2001 book is still not outdated!!! Very impressive on that front. And the story line is also quite good. There are some twists and turns but nothing very surprising.I like the characters and I think I will start from the first book of the series.

    Hurá! Zase žádný megapadouch, s touhou vládnout světu. Tentokrát geniální chemik s drogou, o kterou se perou farmaceutické společnosti, vláda, armáda i feťáci. Výborně prokreslené charaktery (konečně!), hodně ujeté účinky drogy (taky super) a hlavně - soupeření agentur, dvojití agenti a akce. Hodně akce. Vypadá to, že Perry se konečně přestal držet mantinelů, které vymezil Clancy - a to je sakra dobře.Ještě ubrat toho patosu a dám 5/5 :-)

    I like most of Tom Clancy's book (the newer ones somewhat less) and I tried to read this book. I have been aware of the fact that it's not written by Clancy when I bought this book, but his name is on it, and I thought, maybe it fits with his own books. Not so. At least not to me. The style is very different, and I just couldn't bring myself to like it. So no more Net Force for me.

    This is less "net" than CSI-Cyber, which is to say not technical at all, except for the fantasy sequences where virtual reality was used for data reconstructions - what horse dung.This mostly a good-ol-boy army (FBI) operations and guns book, with more action and better weapons than some army units see.

    Not as good as some of the previous ones in this series. On the plus side there were no long chapters about General Howard's son and his boomerang career.. On the downside there was very little 'Net' in this book and it could have been any other run of the mill law enforcement 'v' drug dealer novel.

    Net force is asked to help find who created and is distributing a designer drug that makes one feel indistructible. Drug companies also what to get their hands on the formula and sell it to the military.

    The plot concerns a designer drug that seems to be a combination of Meth, MDMA, steroids, Viagra….Producing amazing strength and no fear; drug companies want it along with a couple of governments….
