Description
Hollis Henry is a journalist on investigative assignment for a magazine called Node, which doesn't yet exist, and Bobby Chombo is a producer working on cutting-edge art installations, in this 2007 novel from "one of the most astute and entertaining commentators on our astonishing, chaotic present" (Washington Post Book World). In his day job, Bobby is a troubleshooter for military navigation equipment—he refuses to sleep in the same place twice, and he meets no one. Hollis Henry has been told to find him.

"Set in the same high-tech present day as Pattern Recognition, Gibson's fine ninth novel offers startling insights into our paranoid and often fragmented, postmodern world. When a mysterious, not yet actual magazine, Node, hires former indie rocker-turned-journalist Hollis Henry to do a story on a new art form that exists only in virtual reality, Hollis finds herself investigating something considerably more dangerous. An operative named Brown, who may or may not work for the U.S. government, is tracking a young, Russian-speaking Cuban-Chinese criminal named Tito. Brown's goal is to follow Tito to yet another operative known only as the old man. Meanwhile, a mysterious cargo container with CIA connections repeatedly appears and disappears on the worldwide Global Positioning network, never quite coming to port. At the heart of the dark goings-on is Bobby Chombo, a talented but unbalanced specialist in Global Positioning software who refuses to sleep in the same spot two nights running. Compelling characters and crisp action sequences, plus the author's trademark metaphoric language, help make this one of Gibson's best."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
