Hardwired, by Walter Jon Williams

Second paragraph of third chapter:
“For the laws I have a certain respect,” he says. “For mercenaries I have none.”
Bought this in the run-up to last year's Worldcon where the author was a GoH, but didn't get around to reading it until now. It's one of the early cyberpunk texts, characters struggling with evil human overlords and the rise of new technology. Cyberpunk doesn't really do all that much for me, and I got really rather lost in the plot, but I liked the characterisation and appreciate the homage to Zelazny's Damnation Alley. You can get it here.

This was my top unread book acquired in 2016. After a re-audit of my bookshelves, next on that list is Delta of Venus by Anaïs Nin.
