From the Back Cover

Mona’s pimp sells her to a plastic surgeon in New York and she’s turned overnight into someone else. The pimp winds up dead. Mona weeps for him. She’s a sweet, dumb girl … so far.

But in the depths of the rustbelt, the ring of steel garbage and toxic waste surrounding the Sprawl, Gentry is obsessively seeking the darkest secrets of the Matrix. Seeking rapture. So that when an impossibly tall and powerful skyscraper of data appears suddenly in the landscape of the Matrix, Gentry is ready for it …

And Mona is set for overdrive. Rapture is on the agenda for both of them, but others greedy for money and power will fight them to the death, whatever 'death' means.
