You're either on the inside or the outside -- and either way, you're in trouble. A hustling young artist finds himself on the run from warring tribes, mysterious conspirators, body-swapping hackers and more, as he tries to both survive and strike it rich on the vertical surface of a skyscraper big enough to be its own world.

Another splendid outing . . . Jeter's latest mad concept astonishes and intrigues as his sure-footed narrative stirs and fascinates. Grab!

Poetic and imaginative, this early Jeter is more magic realism than SF, but the author keeps swerving back and forth across that line. The marriage of technology and whimsy has rarely been more satisfying.
