The concluding Avery Cates novel from Jeff Somers by way of Orbit UK. I was impressed by the first title in this sequence, The Electric Church (reviewed back in our Oct 07 issue). The Final Evolution is a paperback original.
"The world is dying. With avatars replacing humans and the birth rate non-existent, the human race is almost extinct. Only one man could save it - and it's not Avery Cates. In the end, it comes down to Canny Orel, Avery's long sought after nemesis - transformed now into something other than human - and Cates. And when Cates chances on a way to trick the advantage away from the old master, he suddenly has a choice to make: get his long-delayed revenge, or save the world. "
