Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestseller from "one of our most vital novelists". Newsday

Hollis Henry, former rock singer turned journalist, has very reluctantly agreed to work for the secretive Belgian finance genius Hubertus Bigend again — only to find herself entangled in a threatening mesh of postmodern marketing, corrupt American military contractors, and belated romance.

About the Author

William Gibson lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with his wife and their two children. He is credited with having coined the term "cyberspace," and having envisioned both the Internet and virtual reality before either existed.

William Gibson continues the odd, twisty, fashion-saturated world of Hubertes Bigend in this third book of the Bigend series.I do believe this was my favorite book of the trilogy. Milgrim’s new body and clear mind allows his character to grow and respond in new ways to the various situations he finds himself in. Put him together with Hollis and her band member/friend Heidi and we have a very interesting trio. Heidi’s chaotic militant character got a lot more page time in this installment, and I truly enjoyed her straight forward approach to life and the sparring mat.

As with the rest of the series, this mystery centers around fashion. Not only is Bigend trying to track the Gabriel Hounds designer, Milgrim brings to him the concern that Hollis and himself are being followed by at least one party. If you haven’t read this series, I don’t want to give away too much; yet I will say that Book 1 (Pattern Recognition) did not have the same characters as Book 2 (Spook Country). Book 3 has several of the same characters from Book 2 and the ending pulls the trilogy together quite well.

Zero History is a typical very absorbing Gibson novel, rich with "real" characters, details of modern technology (product placement with a purpose!) and fascinating glimpses into developments in science and art that are surely already to be found somewhere if we knew where to look.
