"From the moment Richard K. Morgan's dazzling debut, Altered Carbon, burst onto the scene, it was clear that a distinctive new voice had arrived to shake up science fiction. His subsequent novels--including the sequels Broken Angels and Woken Furies--confirmed him as a master of hard-boiled futuristic thrillers. Now Morgan returns to the world of SF noir with a riveting tale of crime, corruption, and deadly crisis on a planet teetering close to the edge. On a Mars where ruthless commercial interests violently collide with a homegrown independence movement, as Earth-based overlords battle for profits and power, Hakan Veil is an ex-corporate enforcer equipped with military-grade body tech that's made him a human killing machine. But he's had enough of the turbulent red planet, and all he wants is a ticket back home--which is just what he's offered by the Earth Oversight organization, in exchange for being the bodyguard for an EO investigator. It's a beyond-easy gig for a heavy hitter like Veil . . . until it isn't. When Veil's charge, Madison Madekwe, starts looking into the mysterious disappearance of a lottery winner, she stirs up a hornets' nest of intrigue and murder. And the deeper Veil is drawn into the dangerous game being played, the more long-buried secrets claw their way to the Martian surface. Now it's the expert assassin on the wrong end of a lethal weapon--as Veil stands targeted by powerful enemies hellbent on taking him down, by any means necessary"--… (más)

Well, I'm halfway through this baby, and I have the same things to say about this book that I did for Thirteen by Morgan. I am savoring the read, taking it slow. This one takes place on MARS, so we get the inside/out look at human colonization of the red planet. As with Thirteen, the main character grows on you, and his enhanced violent capabilities are tempered by a moral code of sorts. For the most part, the thrashing he hands out is deserved by the thrashees.

These books along with the Altered Carbon series show Morgan to be the real deal. I wait with much anticipation for further chapters to the Hakan Veil/Mars story line. ( )

Got half way through. Couldn’t be bothered finishing it. Well written and all that, just missing something. I don’t fucking know. ( )

Well, The protagonist resembles somewhat that of the Altered Carbon trilogy. The plot follows more or less same logic as its predecessor. There are new ideas of course, but it might as well serve as a prologue to the AC. Fun to read, still. ( )

3.5 stars. I love Morgan's writing style, it's so gritty and dark and there's so much detail you can't help but feel that he's been spying on alternate dimensions or timelines and just copying down events as they happen. This was probably my least favorite of his books so far (and I've read most of them) but still worth a read. I got lost a bit with all the characters and double-dealing going on and felt like the sex scenes got a little gratuitous after a while, but still great sci-fi/noir. ( )

Wow! To be fair, I have been looking forward to reading more Morgan since the devouring the trilogy that started with Altered Carbon. Wasn't quite sure I wanted to go the fantasy route with him, but his SF?

It's an automatic Hell Yes. I'm a big fan of Cyberpunk and Noir fiction and this has all the same great features (if less technologically advanced) as Altered Carbon. Think Noir disgraced military turned gumshoe but put him firmly on a Mars surrounded by corruption, nasty corporate tricks, and a military takeover in the wings.

In other words, the situation is ripe for a TON of bloodshed. :)

And fortunately, as we go through some pretty awesome plotting, mystery, reversals, I can safely say I had a TON of fun. It WAS a bit cliche with the dames, but let's face it... it IS Noir. And they were not cardboard cutouts at all. Sex sells. Violence, too. This book knows its market. :)

I LOVE the military upgrades. Do computers normally have this much humor? ;)

Cyberpunk rules!!! Morgan is one of my favorites and I think I need to get on the rest of his catalog. :) I'm so glad I finally got to this! What a treat! ( )
