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 and her computer hacked, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

I am an obsessive WG's reader, and these audiobooks have given me the opportunity to make a totally new experience. having read each of WG's books many times, the audiobook has been a welcome way to renew the experience.
All of the WG's audiobooks that I have found on Audible are top quality, great recording, great voices, great readers and all unabridged.
Can only recommend all of them.
absolutely yes! and actually I have already listened to it twice!
"Awesome, awesome, awesome."
This was a very good rendering with very few faults. Very good. Enjoyed it as much as when I read it
Case Pollard of course, but all the characters came across well
I haven't heard Shelly Frasier before but will certainly listen to her again
Patterns in information, information in patterns
American readers should check their English pronunciation... Mainwaring is pronounced 'Mannering' for example. Very picky, but there were no other faults
"What a journey"
A classic Gibson!
Great characters in a not so distant dystopia.
Did not know where this would lead at all and loved every second.
Great narration too:)
"Ok. Nothing special"
It was read well, but the story was written in a way that the action wasn't dramatic and the story line a little convoluted.
I'm not sure I understand what the story was about, but it kept me engaged. The reader however was lazy and careless. It was evident this was her first reading of the text and she didn't seem to worry too much about punctuation or pronunciation. It spoiled the book for me.
"dull americanised plot"
did not enjoy storyline. technical in places. monotone audio recording. not entertaining. poor intonation of voice. maybe better if you actually read the book
"Needs more research both in performance and story"
I only finished this because I was a very long car journey. The initial character development creates someone who it is very easy to dislike but by the end you want to be rooting for... I was not. Despite the main character's precise nature there were a number of errors throughout that immediately made me fall out of the story. I can't help but think that with more research this could have been a half decent listen. The story itself didn't grip me which when the main focus of the story (when it gets there) is a mystery is disappointing.
The performance of the main character was very good and while one of the English accents was surprisingly good for an American the rest were not good... Dick Van Dyke not good. With so many English characters it would have made so much sense to have someone British perform the other characters... or at least someone who would pronounce Bournemouth correctly.
"ace story let down by the production"
a great story but really. the pronunciation of a number of character and place names really grated. shame.
