New York Times bestselling author Steven Kotler crafts a near-future thriller about the evolution of empathy. Hard to say when the human species fractured exactly. Harder to say when this new talent arrived. But Lion Zorn is the first of his kind—an empathy tracker, an emotional soothsayer, with a felt sense for the future of the we. In simpler terms, he can spot cultural shifts and trends before they happen. It’s a useful skill for a certain kind of company. Arctic Pharmaceuticals is that kind of company. But when a routine em-tracking job leads to the discovery of a gruesome murder, Lion finds himself neck-deep in a world of eco-assassins, soul hackers and consciousness terrorists. But what the man really needs is a nap. A unique blend of cutting-edge technology and traditional cyberpunk, Last Tango in Cyberspace explores hot topics like psychology, neuroscience, technology, as well as ecological and animal rights issues. The world created in Last Tango is based very closely on our world about five years from now, and all technology in the story either exists in labs or is rumored to exist. With its electrifying sentences, subtle humor, and an intriguing main character, listeners are sure to find something that resonates with them in this groundbreaking cyberpunk science fiction thriller.

A hardboiled tour-de-force, Kotler’s Last Tango blends sparkling prose, compelling characters, and underline-able insights into a gritty sci-fi epic that balances at the precipice of light and dark. Neil Strauss, nine-time New York Times bestselling author
Some books give you a peek into what the future may hold, but Last Tango holds you down, tapes your eyes open, and blasts the doors off. More fun than used to be legal in many states. Joshua Klein, Hacker, Host of National Geographic’s The Link, Author, and Consultant
With a sharp cyberpunk mind and an empaths’ soul, Last Tango gives us a believable near-future and a story you won’t be able to stop reading. I inhaled in one gulp. Bravo! R.U. Sirius, writer, editor, talk show host, musician, and co-founder of Mondo 2000
Dazzling! A luminous, diamond-bright thriller of the near future. Sparkling with empathy, packed with wit, and overflowing with catch-your-breath insights into the human condition. I wish I’d written this myself. Ramez Naam, Philip K Dick Award-winning author
"Astounding! I love any book that teaches me about the future and Kotler’s La Tango is the best I’ve read in a very long time. Incredibly insightful, wildly entertaining, and nearly impossible to put down. Peter Diamandis, New York Times bestselling author
