Zero History, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Former hit singer Hollis is down on her luck after the Crash and can't turn down the offer of a job again from mysterious global ad agency, Blue Ant.

Stanley Milgrim, ex-addict freshly out of an expensive rehab paid for by Blue Ant-founder Hubertus Bigend, is also on the payroll.

Bigend wants them to do some discreet research on an a secret, obscurely fashionable denim.

It may not matter that they know nothing about fashion - but it does matter, at least to them, when bullets start to fly and they realize that Bigend's business obsession is leading them down a dangerous path.

Set among London's dark and tangled streets, Zero History is a brilliant thriller about the webs and networks of the new century.

Review by

Some reviews of this book have tended to focus on it's lack of a decent plot but with William Gibson part of the enjoyment of reading his later books are the little technical details on every page so although the plot of Zero History isn't really anything other than a lightly sketched scenario there's lots of gorgeous descriptions and clever ideas such as a mysterious fashion label, a secret hotel in London and partly visible flying spy devices shaped like animals to keep the reader entertained. It's not Neuromancer but still a great although time consuming read.
