SYNOPSIS:  “It’s the twenty-fifth century, and advances in technology have redefined life itself.  Human consciousness can now be stored in the brain and downloaded into a new body (or ‘sleeve’), reducing death to a minor blip on a screen.  Onetime UN Envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful.

Resleeved into a body in Bay City, Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats existence as something that can be bought and sold.  for Kovacs, the shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning.”
