From Publishers Weekly In early 21st-century America, the law-and-order Gray Party rules through fear of crime and the Vandergroot Molecular Sniffer, which can detect molecules associated with almost any form of illegal activity.Murder in the Solid ... Textbook A nanotechnological chemist in Philadelphia, David Sanger, develops nanoware that can block the Sniffer. He promptly finds himself assaulted, arrested, framed for three murders and on the run. David's flight takes him through the Philadelphia ghetto and a virtual-reality role-playing game, and into a climactic assault on the Gray headquarters. The pacing is brisk, even too much so at times, with Sanger's ethical transformation and some plot turns likely to race past readers. McCarthy (Flies in the Amber) offers memorable characters, however, and manages to tell an enjoyable and imaginative tale of social and technological speculation without loading on the hardware.Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal In this hard-science 21st-century suspense novel, Dr. David Sanger discovers nanotechnology that renders ineffective the Vandergroot Molecular Sniffer?the ultimate detector of everything illegal. When Otto Vandergroot is murdered at a scientific conference, Sanger battles to save his life, his career, and his technology while his mentor and his best friend/lawyer die trying to protect him. This fast-paced adventure will appeal to techno-freaks and anti-totalitarians. Highly recommended.Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
