The New York Times bestselling "cyber-mystery thriller" by the visionary creator of Mona Lisa Overdrive. In 2005 in the states of Northern and Southern California, an ex-cop agrees to track down a young thief who has stolen a valuable technological prototype--for which a mysterious corporation will pay any price or break any law to get back. ...NEW YORK TIMES bestseller - 2005: Welcome to NoCal and SoCal, the uneasy sister-states of what used to be California.

The millennium has come and gone, leaving in its wake only stunned survivors. In Los Angeles, Berry Rydell is a former armed-response rentacop now working for a bounty hunter. Chevette Washington is a bicycle messenger turned pickpocket who impulsively snatches a pair of innocent-looking sunglasses. But these are no ordinary shades. What you can see through these high-tech specs can make you rich--or get you killed. Now Berry and Chevette are on the run, zeroing in on the digitalized heart of DatAmerica, where pure information is the greatest high. And a mind can be a terrible thing to crash. . . .
