A true original * Sunday Times * If you're one of those who sees Gibson as a visionary, it's time to be scared - the scenarios he's playing with here don't make for comfort reading * SFX magazine * Typically visionary, yet plausible and thrilling too * I Paper * Gibson blurs the line between real and speculative technology in a fast-paced thriller that will affirm to readers that it was well worth the wait * Booklist * Engaging, thought-provoking and delightful...
