Turner, corporate mercenary, wakes in a reconstructed body, a beautiful woman by his side. Then Hosaka Corporation reactivates him for a mission more dangerous than the one he's recovering from: Maas-Neotek's chief of R&D is defecting. Turner is the one assigned to get him out intact, along with the biochip he's perfected. But this proves to be of supreme interest to certain other parties--some of whom aren't remotely human.

Bobby Newmark is entirely human: a rustbelt data-hustler totally unprepared for what comes his way when the defection triggers war in cyberspace. With voodoo on the Net and a price on his head, Newmark thinks he's only trying to get out alive. Until he meets the angel.

A stylish, streetsmart, frighteningly probable parable of the future.

I really enjoy William Gibson's prose. - Goodreads
Slow beginning but the ending was worth it. - Goodreads

Great setup and then just sort of a blah non-ending. - Goodreads
Maybe I don't like his writing style. - Goodreads
Still, I think he's an important writer. - Goodreads

Review: Count Zero (Sprawl #2)

User Review  - Max - Goodreads

Loved the characters of Virek, the boxmaker, Finn. Lots of interesting ideas such as the "recruitment consultant". Action packed and didn't let up, with lots of equally compelling story lines in progress at once. Read full review
