Gibson is known for his multilayered fictional explorations of contemporary trends—here, fashion and marketing. Hubertus Bigend wants to create a market for U.S. military/combat apparel, a product he views as recession proof. The novel deals with nefarious dealings in the fashion industry, as well as international espionage and intrigue. Narrator Robertson Dean brings to life the book’s diverse personalities—in particular, former journalist and rock star Hollis Henry, who is hired by Bigend to track down the designer of Gabriel Hounds clothing (with whom Bigend hopes to partner). Dean also excels at portraying Milgrim, a recovering addict who works with Henry. Of course, there are the inevitable twists, and Dean’s focused style captures these moments with aplomb.
