Description
"A thriving trade in barely legal psycho-active viruses has kept underground gene-hacker Alex Sharkey alive in an uncertain post-Millennium - a desperate business that has inadvertently allied him with criminals and Triad chiefs. But these are desperate times Sharkey lives in - with the ecosphere teetering on the brink of collapse in the midst of a bioscientific golden age that has produced such marvels as body-tailoring fembots...and dolls." "Compliant, blue-skinned gengineered creatures, dolls have been specifically designed to serve their human masters as pets, unskilled laborers, even as targets in twisted and brutal murder games. Their creation, and destruction, is of no concern to Alex Sharkey, however, until he receives an irresistible summons - and a challenge - from a brilliant, mesmerizing little girl." "Calling herself Milena, she is the hypnotic and powerfully adept product of a biotechnology project that bred artificially accelerated supergeniuses, and needs Alex's unique expertise to transform the dolls into fairies, a brand new species capable of reproduction and free thought. Yet it is not altruism that drives Milena; her ultimate goal is far more complex, and potentially devastating to all of humanity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
