Synopsis : Miraculous microscopic machines of nanotechnology have built an America in which art flourishes and disease and hunger are unknown, but with these machines some people are finding their minds are frightening places indeed. 30,000 first printing."
Critique: This is the sequel to Greg Bear's popular Queen of Angels, and, like most of this award-winning author's works, it's a stunner. Bear is right at home with the computer and nano technologies that underlie his near-future society. With most of the world's ills having been cured by nanotech, humanity is free to turn its explorations inward, to the mind. Advanced therapies have all but eliminated emotional imbalance, and things have never been better. But when public defender Mary Cho begins investigating a double-murder, she uncovers the truth: all of the high tech is failing, and things will never be worse.
