This second installment in a classic cyberpunk series is a fast-paced ride through a gritty, well-imagined world. Steward is a clone, a beta. His memories are fifteen years old because his alpha never had a brain-scan update. And in those fifteen years, the entire world has changed. An alien race known as the Powers has established relations with humanity. The Policorp that held his allegiance has collapsed. He fought and survived the off-world Artifact War, but dozens of his friends did not. Both his first and second wives have divorced him. And, more importantly, someone has murdered him, causing the activation of the beta backup. Now Steward must probe into the horrors of the war, its politics and betrayals, to find out who wanted him dead—if he doesn’t want to die again.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Slick and intelligent entertainment. The tension remains high throughout. A taut, satisfying tale of space-age skulduggery.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Fast-paced adventure…carefully plotted and well written.” Chicago Tribune
“Resonances of Vietnam-era moral concerns make this deft updating of the post-World War II genre of psychological thrillers about amnesiacs one of the best of its kind.” Publishers Weekly
“A combination of fast action, gritty realism, and high-tech polytechnics that is certain to be popular with Williams’ growing audience.” Booklist
“Fast-moving, hard-driving, with a robust, well-handled plot, an unusual approach, and plenty of intriguing complications. All in all, a stirring and heartening performance.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
