2005: Welcome to NoCal and SoCal, the uneasy sister-states of what used to be California. Here the millenium has come and gone, leaving in its wake only stunned survivors. In Los Angeles, Berry Rydell is a former armed-response rentacop now working for a bounty hunter. Chevette Washington is a bicycle messenger turned pickpocket who impulsively snatches a pair of innocent-looking sunglasses. But these are no ordinary shades. What you can see through these high-tech specs can make you rich--or get you killed. Now Berry and Chevette are on the run, zeroing in on the digitalized heart of DatAmerica, where pure information is the greatest high. And a mind can be a terrible thing to crash...

Rent-a-cops, reality television stars, bike messengers, and the Russian Mob collide in this dark cyberpunk thriller by Vancouver’s favourite sci-fi author. Gibson’s predictions about media, smart devices, and the rise of the Internet are chillingly accurate for 1993, but the pace of the action never bogs down in technophile indulgence. The first book in the Bridge Trilogy, a series centered on the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge re-imagined as a labyrinth shantytown on the edge of society.
