    A corporate mercenary wakes in a reconstructed body, a beautiful woman by his side. Then Hosaka Corporation reactivates him, for a mission more dangerous than the one he's recovering from: to get a defecting chief of R&D-and the biochip he's perfected-out intact. But this proves to be of supreme interest to certain other parties-some of whom aren't remotely human.

    Michael says: "Where've you been all my life?"
    "stil a possibility"
    Overall

    When published, personal computing is still in it's infancy...never mind the internet...and here we are diving into intrigue on this 'world wide web'...interacting with AI, who have assumed position and title to Loas (or christian saints) and hold reign through this new medium.
    Usually, the 'mid-books' of a trilogy of stories is the stumbler but Gibson holds your attention throughout the whole story. Quite a way to set off the next in this line...and at the time, no clue of the follower.
    Quite a tale with a varied cast of players who add their own spice to this tale of rebirth and liberation.
