He fought and survived the off-world Artifacts War, but dozens of his friends did not. Both his first and second wives have divorced him. And, more importantly, someone has murdered him, causing the activation of the beta back-up.Now Steward must probe into the horrors of the war, its politics and betrayals, to find out who wanted him dead - if he doesn't want to die again.More
"Slick and intelligent entertainment. The tension remains high throughout. A taut, satisfying tale of space-age skullduggery." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Resonances of Vietnam-era moral concerns make this deft updating of the postWorld War II genre of psychological thrillers about amnesiacs one of the best of its kind." (Publishers Weekly)

Really good cyberpunk
- Cliff "I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help."
Don't bother just read the book
In the same genre as Neuromancer, Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive. Near Future neo noir cyberpunk.
The narrator was horrible, bad accents, poor timing, lousy inflection. One of the worst science fiction audiobooks I have listened to and it all relates back to the performance.
This is one of my favorite books and I downloaded it planning to listen at work as I haven't read it in a couple years. The performance was so bad I just couldn't do it. Think of watching Arnold Schwatzengger do Hamlet, that was the level of the performance.
