Over sized Paperback book published March 2003, first printing.

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, moniotored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions of race, religon, and class still exsist, advances in tech have redfined life itself. Assuming one can afford the expensive proceedure, apersons conscious can now be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the Brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or "sleeve") making death nothing more than a blip on a screen...unlesss...(this is hard core cyberpunk, and a hardboiled detective tale all rolled into one.)
