The lead character, Noah Dane, fits the mold of the typical detective novel hero with enough of a Heinlein-esque quirkiness to make the whacky vision of the future seem not only plausible, but too comical not to be real. Dane moves through a technologically transformed San Francisco of a not too distant future that comes to life through what seemed like thousands of novel devices and fresh witticisms. It takes a few short, jam-packed chapters to set the stage, but once I was into the meat of the story it was hard not to want to know what mutant-street urchin or sexually charged android would appear next, and what they would do--to who.
From the whimsically well-fleshed dystopia to its endearingly comical showdown, this book is just what the title says it is. Every page demanded louder to be turned until the last one put me to bed with a smile on my face.
Bruce Golden's skill as a satirist, his imaginative depiction of the future in our law enforcement departments, and his vivid characters, intertwined with the everyday personal problems that the reader can relate to, makes for an entertaining tale.
