"Spook Country" - a gripping spy thriller by William Gibson, bestselling author of "Neuromancer". "Among our most fascinating novelists ...unmissable". ("Daily Telegraph"). What happens when old spies come out to play one last game? In New York a young Cuban called Tito is passing iPods to a mysterious old man. Such activities do not go unnoticed, however, in these early days of the War on Terror and across the city an ex-military man named Brown is tracking Tito's movements. Meanwhile in LA, journalist Hollis Henry is on the trail of Bobby Chombo, who appears to know too much about military systems for his own good. With Bobby missing and the trail cold, Hollis digs deeper and is drawn into the final moves of a chilling game played out by men with old scores to settle..."A cool, sophisticated thriller". ("Financial Times"). "I'd call the book brilliant and original if only I were certain I understood it". ("Literary Review"). "Superb, brilliant. A compulsive and deeply intelligent literary thriller". ("New Statesman"). "A neat, up-to-the-minute spy thriller". ("Metro"). William Gibson is a prophet and a satirist, a black comedian and an outstanding architect of cool. Readers of Neal Stephenson, Ray Bradbury and Iain M. Banks will love this book. "Spook Country" is the second novel in the Blue Ant trilogy - read Pattern Recognition and Zero History for more. William Gibson's first novel "Neuromancer" has sold more than six million copies worldwide. In an earlier story he had invented the term 'cyberspace'; a concept he developed in the novel, creating an iconography for the Information Age long before the invention of the Internet. The book won three major literary prizes. He has since written nine further novels including "Count Zero"; "Mona Lisa Overdrive"; "The Difference Engine"; "Virtual Light"; "Idoru"; "All Tomorrow's Parties"; "Pattern Recognition"; "Spook Country" and most recently "Zero History". He is also the author of "Distrust That Particular Flavor", a collection of non-fiction writing.
