This is high action, ideas driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance.

My favourite of the Takeshi Kovacs novels, this story seems to pushback away from the transhumanist angle and back to the classic cyberpunk question of what is human?

The most human character in the story is the woman who is an implanted personality overriding another person.

A great read in the film-noir Cyberpunk tradition.
