In the year 2010, computers are the new superpowers. Those who controlthem, control the world. To enforce the New Laws, Congress creates the ultimate computer security agency within the FBI: Net Force.
When the director of Net Force is assassinated, Deputy Director Alex Michaels is thrust into one of the most powerful and dangerous positions in the world. At the same time, cyber-terrorists sabotage mainframe computers across the country, causing famine, chaos, and death.
Now Michaels and his team must find out who is responsible - and what they have to gain. But there is another problem. If they assassinated one Net Force director, what will stop them from assassinating another?
