Two genetically altered criminals-- Whispr and Jiminy Cricket-- murder a random tourist in order to amputate and then fence his sophisticated artificial hand. But the hapless victim also happens to be carrying an unusual silver thread that appears to be some kind of storage medium. When Jiminy disappears, all Whispr wants to do is sell the thread as quickly as he can. When he offers to split the profits with Harvard-educated Dr. Ingrid Seastrom in exchange for her medical services, she makes an astonishing discovery-- one that can get them both killed.

A good premise even if a bit odd. The boy-meets-girl part will likely come to the typical result but in this book it is only hinted at. The author has left me hanging with this book so finding and reading the next one Body, Inc. is a must! There are a couple of characters that show up time and again so I expect to see more of their activity. And the future where body parts can be sculpted and melded, however outlandish and improbable, is done in a way that is better and different from previous authors, and that was nice to find.
