From the Publisher:
Hired to investigate a mysterious video collection that has been appearing on the Internet, market research consultant Cayce Pollard realizes that there is more to the assignment when her computer is hacked. Reprint.
Annotation:
On a strange assignment from a wealthy industrialist, Cayce Pollard uses her work to distract herself from the recent death of her father, missing since the World Trade Center attacks the previous year. Tracking a piece of film footage on the Internet takes her across the globe, but when her own computer is hacked she begins to realize that perhaps she has a personal connection to the story of which even she is unaware. A New York Times Notable Book for 2003.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"As usual, Gibson's prose is--to use some of his favorite adjectives--corpuscular, crenelated. His sentences side from silk to steel, and take tonal joy rides from the ironic to the earnest. But he never gets lost in the language, as he sometimes has in the past. Structurally, this may be his most confident novel. The secondary characters and their subplots are more fully developed, right down to their personal e-mail styles....Gibson's novel succeeds in being both being up-to-the-nanosecond and also, in [one character's] highest praise, "curiously difficult to date."" - Lisa Zeidner 01/19/2003

Times Literary Supplement
"PATTERN RECOGNITION is Gibson's most mature book to date: strongly written, suspenseful, thoughtfully structured. More than this, it is both a serious meditation on the act of creation and an exploration of postmodern consciousness." - Henry Hitchings 05/02/2003

London Review of Books
"[O]bservational exuberance,...gives the novel its distinctive, collage-like texture." - Christopher Tayler 05/22/2003
