Reviews

"Exceptionally good. Besides being an excellent mystery, it is a convincing look at the near future of nanotechnology."
—Vernor Vinge

"McCarthy deftly blends the SF and mystery genres with a healthy dose of paranoia to create a fast, completely engrossing thriller."
—Monica Simmons, Locus

"The pacing is brisk. McCarthy offers memorable characters, and manages to tell an enjoyable and imaginative tale of social and technological speculation without loading on the hardware."
—Publishers Weekly

"A fast-moving adventure yarn. McCarthy deftly mixes the action story with a strong background of science."
—Fred Cleaver, The Denver Post

"Breathless... Its striking quality is not so much the fascinating science as the canny use of hardboiled prose and keen sense of pacing. Any author with the knack for tight, vivid writing and good SF mystery in an often clueless field should be applauded."
—Charles DeLint, F&SF

"An interesting murder mystery involving nanotechnology, political intrigue, virtual reality and industrial espionage. McCarthy manages to squeeze quite a lot into a relatively small package, including some telling social commentary."
—Michael Wolff, Starlog
