    Inhaltsangabe

    In a prosperous yet gruesomely violent near future, superhero vigilantes battle thugs whose heads are full of supervillain fantasies. The peace is kept by a team of smooth, well-dressed negotiators called The Men in Fancy Suits. Meanwhile a young girl is caught in the middle and thinks the whole thing is ridiculous.

    Zoey, a recent college graduate with a worthless degree, makes a reluctant trip into the city after hearing that her estranged con artist father died in a mysterious yet spectacular way. There she finds that her scumbag dad had actually, in the final years of his life, put his amazing talent for hustling to good use: He was one of the founding members of the Fancy Suits and died in the course of his duties. Zoey is quickly entangled in the city's surreal mob war when she is taken hostage by a particularly crazy villain who imagines himself to be a Dr. Doom-level mastermind. The villain is demanding information about Zoe's father when she is rescued by The Fancy Suits. She reluctantly joins their cause and helps finish what her old man started, tapping in to her innate talent for bullshit that she inherited from her hated father. And along the way, she might just have to learn how to trust people again.

    Wait for the beginning to be over!

    I went from: 'Meehh' to 'not bad' to 'wow' to 'what the hell! Awesome!' and had really fun with this book. Read it, it's worth every penny.

    Great futuristic story

    Great entertainment and strong telling style.
    Rough and futuristic story but not for everybody. Recommendation from my side.

    i'm sad it's over

    the beginning is not as catchy as one of the john dies at the end books. but after a while you get attached to the main character and the story really turns into a david wong story. the jokes in the book are also far less obvious than in his other books, but i feel like the irony and the sarcasm is sometimes even nicer than in david wongs other books

    Brilliant!

    More down to earth than the "John dies at the end" series, because the characters act less stupidly. Thats whats made this story especially appealing for me.
    A must read for every fan of crazy over the top Sci-Fi action!

    Oh Boy

    This book is just awesome. Trailerpark Attitude meets futuristic violence. Ich barely could Stop Hearing it. People who knew the books from David wong wont be dissapointed. Its the same HP. lovecraft meets Douglas Adams stuff, just more futuristic.

    Hardcore Cyberpunk mit soziologischem Humor

    Sehr durchdacht, satirische Soziologie und voller unerwarteter Wendungen. Nichts für den Durchschnittsleser. Was andere Autoren des Cyberpunk vergeblich zu erreichen versuchen, schüttelt David Wong spielerisch aus dem Ärmel.
