"Besher effortlessly hurtles us into inner universes in a single sentence."
"Incredibly compelling with (his) mix of technology and metaphysics, human consciousness and virtual reality."
--Moira Gunn, "Tech Nation," National Public Radio
The year is 2036, and epidermal programming is all the rage among the fringe dwellers of the hacker underworld. Sentient tattoos travel on-line, perform tasks for their owners in Omnispace and can even be transferred from body to body in forbidden techno-pagan rituals. But these tattoos are also contaminated with bio-software bugs that can wreak havoc not only on the user but also on the entire Net. And one particularly virulent bug, codenamed Mir, is on the loose, destroying everything in its path. Trevor Gobi, son of the legendary VR investigator Frank Gobi, is in hot pursuit. But Mir has plans of its own . . . A wildly imaginative, frighteningly believable, breakneck cyber thriller from the acclaimed author of "Rim."
