William Gibson returns with his first novel since 2010's New York Times best-selling Zero History.
Where Flynne and her brother, Burton, live, jobs outside the drug business are rare. Fortunately, Burton has his veteran's benefits, for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC's elite Haptic Recon force. Then one night Burton has to go out, but there's a job he's supposed to do - a job Flynne didn't know he had. Beta-testing part of a new game, he tells her. The job seems to be simple: work a perimeter around the image of a tower building. Little buglike things turn up. He's supposed to get in their way, edge them back. That's all there is to it. He's offering Flynne a good price to take over for him. What she sees, though, isn't what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder.

A Tortured Future Gaming the Past

Narrator ruined it
Yes but only to read. The narrator for this is not a good match.
She's is well suited for romance fiction and reads everything in a breathy manner unsuited to this genre and specifically this story. She completely ruined this book for me.
Yes. But only if Lorelei King has nothing to do with it.
Gibson is one of my all time favorite writers. I've enjoyed audio versions of his works up to this point. Please don't use King again for his work. It's a very bad pairing.
