Infoquake trade paperback cover

From the back cover of the mass market paperback:
       Natch is a master of bio/logics, the programming of the human body.  He's clawed and scraped his way to the top of the market using little more than his wits.  Now his notoriety has brought him to the attention of Margaret Surina, the owner of a mysterious technology called MultiReal.  Only by enlisting Natch's devious mind can MultiReal be kept out of the hands of the High Executive Len Borda and his ruthless armies.
       To fend off the intricate net of enemies closing in around him, Natch and his apprentices must accomplish the impossible: prepare MultiReal for release to the public -- in only three days.  Meanwhile, hanging over everything is the specter of the infoquake, a lethal burst of energy that's disrupting the bio/logic networks and threatening to send the world crashing back into the Dark Ages.
