"In the not-too-distant future, intelligent Things are recognized as
sentient beings--but do they have the same rights as humans? And what
about the free-floating Intelligents deep within the Internet. Thompson
Jennings is a man with unique problems and unique abilities--he can
interface between the human and machine worlds, acting as a go-between
in labour negotiations and other disputes. But when one his clients, a
sentient taxicab, is murdered, his problems multiply and his abilities
are stretched to the limit."
