William Gibson returns with his first novel since 2010’s New York Times bestselling book Zero History.

Where Flynne and her brother Burton live, jobs outside the drug business are rare. Fortunately, Burton receives veteran’s benefits for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the United States Marine Corp’s elite Haptic Recon force.

One night Burton has to go out, but there’s a job he’s supposed to do—a job Flynne didn’t know he had. It’s for beta testing part of a new game, he tells her. The job seems simple: work a perimeter around the image of a tower building. When little bug-like things turn up, he’s supposed to get in their way and edge them back. That’s all there is to it. He’s offering Flynne a good price to take over for him. What she sees, though, isn’t what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder.
