When FBI agent James Bayley decided to do a solo investigation how the scientific Life Scan project has been allowed to eat up billions of pounds of funding over 30 years while apparently being a total failure, he finds that he has bitten off more than he can chew. This is an interesting early novel about the possibilities of transferring the human mind into cyberspace and the consequences for both individuals and society. Unfortunately, once the setting moves from L.A. into cyberspace it seems to peter off as soon as it has described the first infomorph's acclimatisation to its new environment. I could have done with more conflict between the 'infomorphs', some resolution of Yumi's story, and a stronger ending.
