COUNT ZERO: The Neuromancer Trilogy

WILLIAM GIBSON    Book Number: 88235    Product format: Paperback

They set a Slamhound on Turner's trail in New Delhi, slotted it into his pheromones and the colour of his hair. When the Maas Biolabs and Hosaka zaibatsus fight it out for world domination, computer cowboys like Turner and Count Zero are just foot soldiers in the great game - useful but ultimately expendable. When Turner wakes up in Mexico in a new body with a beautiful woman beside him, his corporate masters let him recuperate for a while, then reactivate his memory for a mission even more dangerous than the one that nearly killed him. The head designer from Maas Biolabs says he wants to defect to Hosaka, and it's Turner's job to deliver him safely. Count Zero is a rustbelt data-hustler, totally unprepared for what comes his way when the designer's defection triggers a war in cyberspace. With voodoo gods in the Net, and angels in the software, he can only hope that the megacorps and the super-rich have their virtual hands too full to notice the amateur hacker with the black market kit desperately trying to stay alive. A masterly peek into the computer-obsessed electronic global ghetto narrated in futuristic slang-enriched vocabulary. First published in 1986 and here in 305 page paperback reprint.
