Don't give out 5 stars for published reviews,but this was close. Starts out slow,building,building and then the last quarter accelerates rapidly and the chase is afoot as they say. Rereading it for the 'nth time I am still moved by the grace and beauty of Gibson's writing. Along with a very few other gifted authors like le Carre he shows what the English language is capable of in the right hands. Possibly the best book Gibson has written and possibly the best book I have read. Ready to read it again.
