A decent tale if not a bit overlong and convoluted.

Not sure the science melds very well with the Noir but it's a good attempt.
The characters have some depth to them and Kovacs makes an interesting, flawed hero.
Main problem is the overly complex story and you finding out the little details of what's going on in a very drawn out fashion.
Good first novel though.
In retrospect I've knocked a star off...another reviewer said it wasn't as good asVoice of the Whirlwind, a 1987 cyber punk novel. They're right, having just read that novel, it's not. But more importantly there's a lot of things that are just too similar for me so this book loses points for a certain lack of originality.
