"What makes the novel so haunting is its vision of a near future in which society has fractured along every possible national, tribal and sectarian fault line."
-The New York Times Book Review
In the hidden "flesh and chip" breeding grounds of the first cyborg communities, Toorop, a hard-boiled Special Forces veteran of Sarajevo, is hired by a shadow organization to escort a young woman, Marie Zorn, from Russia to Canada. But what appears to be a routine job is anything but. After completing the mission, Thoorop discovers that Marie is no ordinary girl. A genetically altered pawn in an elaborate plot, Marie is carrying a dark secret that could spell destruction for all humankind-if Thoorop doesn't track her down before it's too late.
"A vast encyclopedia of the future as seen through a crystal ball with cracks in the glass."
-The Sydney Morning Herald
