Robin, the male protagonist, has gone through multiple mind-wipes and body transfigurations. As the story starts, he's just come out of one and is soon heading for another as part of an experiment to study the dark ages (1950-2040). Robin is dodging some old enemies, though neither he nor the reader knows exactly whom.
Soon he, now she, is playing a role in 20th century suburbia, allowing Stross to take swipes at our customs and mores as well as our gender stereotyping.
Interesting read from a variety of angles. I'll be looking for more of Stross.
