The first thing you need to know about this book: It's weird! In the first chapter our protagonist comes home to find out that his home has been stolen and a limpet encyclopedia saleswoman (she sticks to you until you buy) has just dropped from a combat helicopter to make him a deal he can't refuse. From there things make less and less sense. And yet they do. It's a city where neighborhoods are themed by music genres (classical, easily listening, white noise, etc). A city where the Zone Traffic Police have become all powerful. Oh, and a group of heavy metal bikers want our protagonist to help them kill god. Trust me, these things do fit together ... eventually. From official release/information:
From back of book: "Don't you hate it when this happens?" ...that's what the business card asks Jonny X67, dream architect to the rich and jaded. It's all the thieves who stole his house left behind. If that weren't bad enough, an encyclopedia saleswoman has just dropped form the sky and won't take no for an answer. Can his luck get any worse?
