Pattern Recognition by William Gibson
€ 9.00 excl VAT
An untrustworthy corporate petty criminal, a resourceful heroine and mortal souls… there’s something familiar about William Gibson’s Pattern Recognition.
Pattern Recognition – a pulsating techno-thriller by William Gibson, bestselling author of Neuromancer.
Cayce Pollard has been flown to London. She’s a ‘coolhunter’ – her services for hire to global corporations desperate for certainty in a capricious and uncertain world. Now she’s been offered a special project: track down the makers of the addictive online film that’s lighting up the ‘net. Hunting the source will take her to Tokyo and Moscow and put her in the sights of Japanese computer crazies and Russian Mafia men. She’s up against those who want to control the film, to own it – who figure breaking the law is just another business strategy.
The kind of people who relish turning the hunter into the hunted . . .
