In her novel Electricland Ms. Mayerson has a character ask, “can any of you remember any of the middle-aged women you have met recently well enough to describe her and identify her?” The answer is of course no. This provides the stealth technology for the world’s most effective violence for hire group. In the events described they seem to be working for an unnamed organization that is interested in keeping the US just slightly destabilized in this wonderful dystopian near future tale. The situation has been complicated in this case by a “romantic error” that required a lot of footwork and a staggering body count to correct. If you can imagine a somewhat brighter Tom Clancy gone to the dark side writing in a Larry Niven gamer world you will have a good idea of just how much fun Ms. Mayerson had with this book. It is a "ultra-violence" chronology of the post 9/11 landscape. Written with nihilistic delight the story has a nice subtext of interaction between the players with a soupcon of eclectic eroticism for the adult reader. Like all of Ms. Mayerson’s novels it can be read on many levels but first and foremost it is a thumping good read that I enjoyed hugely.
