I enjoyed this novel a lot. It was fast moving and the megacorporate plot was truly serpentine. Among the characters is a master plotter nearly equal to the corps in Geraint, unlike most SR novles where straightforward hoop-kicking runners figure things out through shear grit and persistence. England in the world of Shadowrun is a dismal place and Sargent and Gascgoigne capture this feel well. The ending is also as bittersweet as it should be. Most Shadowrun novels have happy endings, which seem out of place in the grim future dominated by megacorporations.
