Good easy listen
This book was quite entertaining and well thought out. It has unexpected turnings and a rich character development. It's an easy listen, well read, with great voices. I wish Morgan had more out. Having said this it was not as good as Altered Carbon but it was excellent.

I am a fan of Morgan's writing. I enjoyed the Kovac's series a great deal and I liked Thirteen almost as well. However, I have to say that this title let me down.
The book is well written and the characters were well developed. My problem was that I just never made that personal connection with ANY of the characters. Even at three quarters of the way through, I didn't really care if any of the characters lived or died. I kept waiting for some kind of redemption all the way to the end and it never came. I think this would have made a great novella. If I had only spent two or three hours listening to it, I would have been more generous with the rating.
There is strong language, sex and violence as in most/all of Morgan's books. But it fits the characters and backdrop of the story. I can live with that and it doesn't bother me. What I can't live with is a story that just doesn't hold my attention or allow me to develop an emotional connection to any of the characters. I will continue to listen to Morgan's books as they are published but I won't revisit this title nor can I recommend it to others. I do recommend his other titles however.
