Compared to James Ellroy for its brutal intensity and to Raymond Chandler for its style and characterisation, this future-crime novel is a breathtakingly fast and violent thriller that carries a weight of ideas and speculative science with graceful ease. In Takeshi Kovacs it introduces a brooding new hero who propels the vivid strength, violence and singularity of purpose of James Ellroy's best characters into the 26th century.
