Carly Quester was once a professional telelinker with a powerful and corrupt mediation firm. Now she lives as an outlaw among the underground in San Francisco, wanted by the authorities for dubious crimes against Data Control. But with a new assignment from a mysterious sengine-and the help of a standalone AI entity, Pr. Spinner-Carly seeks the fast-track back into public telespace and the Prime Time.
Her assignment, however, comes with sticky strings attached. For it has made Carly the target of a ruthless mercenary ultra, the love obsession of the young shaman of a savage urban tribe-and a possible pawn of the Silicon Supremacists plotting no less than the annihilation of humankind.
