    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    Laura says: "Not Unabridged"
    "Quirky, inventive, patchy, works out well."
    Overall

    Inventive, sassy, and smart, orbiting somewhere in the triangle between sci-fi, cyberpunk, and contemporary urban style thriller, without quite being any of those genres. At the core there's a haunting story based on a (just-about) plausible premise. The plot occasionally loses direction and pace, and sometimes the style neuroses are heavy-handed, but still I ended up caring about Cayce Pollard. Can we hear more about her?
    A good drive-time listen, if occasionally difficult to follow on the details of the dialogue.
