Dean Kenyon has proved to me that I'm not entirely through with my Cyberpunk phase like I thought I was. While definitely rooted in the cyberpunk genre, this book feels like an homage to noir detectives as well. Kenyon's book skips cybernetic enhancements in favor of some truly frightening pharmaceutical enhancements, resulting in a plot that has an "it could happen tomorrow" edge to it.
This book hits pretty much all the right notes for me. Its plot is all-too believable, its characters are engaging, and the action doesn't drag. It's been a long time since I've read a book told entirely in the first person, and even longer since I've read one that worked as well as this one does.The main complaint I have about the book is that it feels kind of short. I guess if you end a book wishing it were longer, that's not an entirely bad thing.
