A wryly entertaining first-Gulf-War-era political thriller from Neal Stephenson and his uncle. It's pretty similar in style and quality to "Interface", although the stories aren't related. The characterisation is typical Stephenson; there's a lot of Randy Waterhouse in this book's hero, for example. Thoroughly recommended -- I've now read all Stephenson's books, so I'm eagerly awaiting whatever he'll write next.
