A great deep look at Data
This is the only Star Trek novel I've read that really goes into depth describing what Data's like. It goes down to his physical abilities, his inner workings, and most interestingly, how his mind works.
Data's a truly fascinating character, and this has been one of my favorite TNG novels for years.
