Abstract:

It is the future. The end of the world is no more than a distorted memory. A sentient glacier has wiped out most of North America's cities. Medical care is supplied by networked and human nervous systems can be hacked. Abby Fogg is a film archivist with a niggling feeling that her life is not her own. And she's right. Al Skinner is a former mercenary for the Boeing Army, who's dragged his war baggage behind him for nearly a century. Woo-jin Kan is a virtuoso dishwasher with the Hotel and Restaurant Management Olympics medal to prove it. Over them all hovers a mysterious man named Dirk Bickle who puts people in the right places at the right time- and it all culminates in a full-scale replica of Manhattan under construction in Puget Sound.--From back cover.
