Takeshi Kovacs is tough as nails, hard as they come, and this book is no exception. I doubt Hollywood could make movies from these books without risking losing the cinema-worthy R. Not necessarily for the sexual content, though it is there, but the sheer violence. This book may indeed provide rich compost for vivid nightmares, but it picks up where many of our beloved cyberpunk writers left off. Worth a read and the risk of a sleepless night. For myself, the reason I lost sleep was not being able to stop. I've read everything I've found so far by Morgan, and he does not disappoint. (I do sometimes need to retreat to my "happy place" though.)

another good Takeshi Kovacs book. not as good as the first two, but still entertaining.

A good story here, with some complexity and depth, as well as more back story about the hero and why he does what he does. Still set in the rather horrific future, of course, but Morgan handles this one better in my view. I don't know if there will be more Kovacs novels or not, but his writing is getting better and I hope he continues the series.
