(1968- ) US author of the Hammerjack sequence of Near Future noir Cyberpunk-inflected thrillers, comprising Hammerjack (2005) and Prodigal (2006), in which a hammerjacker – a thief who steals high-tech secrets – who has become a legitimate counter-agent (for a private firm) and spearheads the resistance to terrorists who plan to oppose humanity's Computer-driven Evolution towards the Posthuman. The action is competent, but leaves little room for anything else. [JC]
