Publisher's Summary

2039: The Russians didn't use the big nukes. The ongoing Third World War has left parts of Europe in ruins. Into the chaos steps the Second Alliance, a multinational eager to impose its own kind of New World Order. In the United States - in FirStep, the vast space colony and on the artificial island Freezone - the SA shoulders its way to power, spinning a dark web of media manipulation, propaganda, and infiltration. Only the New Resistance recognizes the SA for what it really is: a racist theocracy hiding a cult of eugenics. Enter Rick Rickenharp, a former rock'n'roll cult hero: a rock classicist out of place in Europe’s underground club scene, populated by wiredancers and minimonos - but destined to play a Song Called Youth that will shake the world.

Classic dystopian cyber-punk

John Shirley does an amazing job world building and his characters are very human and relatable. This is a grim world overrun by a fascist regime that has subversively taken over large portions of the world.
If you love cyber-punk (why else would you be here?) this is definitely a worthwhile read.
