The first book by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is set 500 years in the future, on a planet that is grounded in medical transformation of humans into "sleaves" that suspend individual beings until they are "recalled" for their key skills and expertise. A former spartan-like envoy is recalled to solve the mystery of why a 200-year old delegate of an international corporation shoots himself in the head. The mystery of whether the delegate was murdered, or actually committed suicide leads the envoy on a wild ride that is driven by the author's colorful imagination, and stunning description of the future role of electro-chemical medicine in perpetuating the powerful, and how culture drives what is true and just in life. A masterful first effort the autor, and a memorable ride for the reader.

Loaded with clever ideas and tricky tech, all presented in an off-hand manner, from a first-time writer that had me instantly hooked. Is now one of my favorite writers - he can't write quickly enough, as far as I'm concerned.

A well written detective story that is in the future, which you won't want to put down.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Morgan's 25th-century Earth is convincing, while the questions he poses about how much Self is tied to body chemistry and how the rich believe themselves above the law are especially timely." Publishers Weekly
"Review" by , "Richard K. Morgan has created a world as cinema-rich as those of Philip K. Dick...and William Gibson's."
"Review" by , "This far-future hard-boiled detective story is a lovely virtual-reality romp distinguished by a conspiracy whose strands have the potential to generate several successful sequels, which is just what its publicity promises."
"Review" by , "[A] hard-bitten detective story in a science-fiction setting....[D]espite the difficulty of writing combined genre tales, this one succeeds brilliantly."
"Synopsis" by , Now available in mass market--Morgan's acclaimed cyberpunk-noir debut novel--a Philip K. Dick Award winner--that introduces antihero Takeshi Kovacs, a hard-boiled private eye in the dangerous urban world of the future.
