Really good read. The world is a mess due to pollution and more (what's new?) People are jacked into the net through implants, similar to cyberpunk novels. Add in a dash of Film Noir detectives, a war hero back story, and the ubiquitous "hooker with a heart of gold. Tie it together with lost love and you have Dome City Blues.
It's hard to believe that this was originally written in the early 90s!
