San Francisco, the nearish future; ex-cop Berry Rydell's lost one job he didn't much like and landed another he likes even less. Some sunglasses - actually high-end kit involving VR and super-sensitive data - got stolen from a courier and a man named Warbaby's been charged with retrieving them. Warbaby needs a driver and Rydell fits the bill. But when the courier is killed and Warbaby gets to work - giving Rydell a taste of what's expected and exactly what's at stake - he's getting second thoughts. Especially when he comes face to face with Chevette, stealer of sunglasses, who'll land an ex-cop in a heap of trouble.

Review quote

'Audacious, witty and passionate ... A wonderful read' Observer 'A stunner ... a terrifically stylish burst of kick-butt imagination' Entertainment Weekly 'Convincing, frightening, written with a sense of craft, a sense of humour and a sense of the ultimate seriousness of the problems it explores' Chicago Tribune 'Gibson has made these future Californias as much his own as Raymond Chandler did the Southern California of the '40s. Now I know what it must have felt like to grab the new Chandler, hot off the press' Locus
