    This engaging thriller depicts the chaos that ensues when the all-too-familiar year 2000 (Y2K) bug hits, crashing computer systems around the world. In Jason Kelly's novel, riots sweep through cities around the country after Y2K knocks out electricity. Transportation grinds to a halt when clocks in the microchips that control planes, trains, and automobiles fail. The same high-tech weaponry that toppled the forces of Saddam Hussein is rendered useless, leaving an unprepared United States military virtually defenseless against renegade nations with older but still lethal arsenals.
    For computer geeks, X-Files devotees, and Tom Clancy readers alike, Y2K is one of those books that's hard to put down once you start reading it. While many argue that the Y2K bug is mostly hype, this book makes it impossible not to wonder what's going to happen when the ball drops on December 31, 1999.
