Nimmo, Scope, Manikin and FX already work for the bad guys, but in a city gone to ruin that’s the only way to survive. When crime boss Move-Easy puts them together to complete a simple mission it seems like an easy job, but some members of the team have a different agenda and under the watchful eye of a city under constant surveillance no one can afford to keep secrets. Hi-tech gadgetry and hacking are a way of life for these young criminals and despite being under constant observation it seems that people can be easily removed if they start causing problems. Fast-paced action and a new breed of anti-heroes give this thriller a strange time-warped feeling; despite ultra-modern technology featuring heavily Rat Runners seems to be working within worlds created by Philip K Dick and visualised in movies like Blade Runner and Minority Report, with characters reminiscent of 90s cult-flick Hackers, while name-checking influences such as Brave New World and A Clockwork Orange. A cast of colourful characters will keep techno teens happy in this maze of cyberpunk crime.
