While offering a well-developed look at the near future and moving along at a good pace, this novel avoids being yet another techno-thriller mainly by dint of its characters and the complex motivations that drive each of them. There aren’t any monolithic corporations or government agencies whose sole purpose is to bring harm to others or to destroy civilization, but the possibilities are just as scary and far more believable for all of that. The ending is a little abrupt, but the whole is quite satisfying.
