delicate path around them.

"Hands on the wall."

The skin on the back of Adam's hands looked like tissue paper, ready to tear at a moment's notice.

The air reeked - an acrid combination of vomit and excrement that the drizzle only aggravated. Adam spread his legs and let Dan pat his sides for weapons.

Dan pressed the muzzle of his automatic into the small of Adam's back, hard enough to bruise. He grappled with his handcuffs and slapped them around Adam's left wrist. Then, with a twist to the cruel metal that would ensure compliance through pain, he wrenched Adam's arm behind his back and fastened the other half of the cuffs. It was never easy; Dan felt vulnerable working alone. He'd never grown accustomed to it after leaving the force. Only the reassuring click-click-click of secured handcuffs released the tension pent within.

This was a book that tried to do too much. I liked the world and the premise that corporations had essentially taken over all the public and government functions. The bounty hunter plot was nice - who was going to get Jen first? The by the book Dan or the crazy cyborg Raven? The problem was, we had about four other subplots running around as well - some revenge, sex slaves, a conspiracy to hide a technological problem, infighting at Uniforce. It was a bit too much to shoehorn into one story. A fair amount of blood, sex and violence as well.

Great near-future thriller about the takeover by mega-companies and globalization. My only warning is there is a very graphic rape scene described by one of the characters. Also, other depictions of gory violence and language. If you can get past this, the story is a rip-roaring page turner.
I found the writing was bad enough that I did not finish it. I kept trying a little bit more but it was too much for me. I don't understand all the good reviews.
Read this book last year while I was in Canada. GREAT book! I loved it! Couldn't stop reading once I started - read it in a matter of days. I wish someone would turn it in to a movie!
Excellent book. New spin on a classic. Kept me interested the entire time. I would recommend this to anyone.
