Cayce Pollard owes her living to her pathological sensitivity to logos.

In London to consult for the world's coolest ad agency, she finds herself catapulted, via her addiction to a mysterious body of fragmentary film footage, uploaded to the Web by a shadowy auteur, into a global quest for this unknown "garage Kubrick". Cayce becomes involved with an eccentric hacker, a vengeful ad executive, a defrocked mathematician, a Tokyo Otaku-coven known as Eye of the Dragon and, eventually, the elusive Kubrick himself.

William Gibson's novel is about the eternal mystery of London, the coolest sneakers in the world, and life in (the former) USSR.

Rezensionen
A masterful performance. Chicago Tribune

Gibson nails the texture of internet culture: how it feels to be close to someone you know only as a voice in a chat room, or to fret about someone spying on your browser s list of sites visited. The New York Times

Completely contemporary...his best book. San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

[An] eerie vision of our time. The New Yorker

Pattern Recognition races along like an expert thriller, but it rides on a strong current of melancholy, of elegy for the broken and the vanished...Gibson knows he s building on ground zero. GQ

So good it defies all the usual superlatives. The Seattle Times

It turns out that William Gibson knows as much about the present as he does about the future...a masterful performance from a major novelist who seems to be just now hitting his peak. Welcome to the present, Mr. Gibson. Chicago Tribune

Gibson s first novel to take place in the present takes you on a reckless journey of espionage and lies and doesn t promise a safe return...wonderfully chilling...a dangerously hip book. USA Today

[Gibson], who invented the future with Neuromancer, shows he s just as skilled at seeing the present. Entertainment Weekly

A serious thriller set in the dystopian present...glossy [and] well-paced. Time
