Description
 

Tito is in his early twenties. Born in Cuba, he speaks fluent Russian, lives in one room in a NoLita warehouse, and does delicate jobs involving information transfer. Hollis Henry is an investigative journalist, on assignment from a magazine called Node. Node doesnt exist yet, which is fine; shes used to that. But it seems to be actively blocking the kind of buzz that magazines normally cultivate before they start up. Really actively blocking it. Its odd, even a little scary, if Hollis lets herself think about it much. Which she doesnt; she cant afford to. Milgrim is a junkie. A high-end junkie, hooked on prescription antianxiety drugs. Milgrim figures he wouldnt survive twenty-four hours if Brown, the mystery man who saved him from a misunderstanding with his dealer, ever stopped supplying those little bubble packs. What exactly Brown is up to Milgrim cant say, but it seems to be military in nature. At least, Milgrims very nuanced Russian would seem to be a big part of it, as would breaking into locked rooms. Bobby Chombo is a producer, and an enigma. In his day job, Bobby is a troubleshooter for manufacturers of military navigation equipment. He refuses to sleep in the same place twice. He meets no one. Hollis Henry has been told to find him. Pattern Recognitionwas a bestseller on every list of every major newspaper in the country, reaching #4 on the New York Timeslist. It was also a BookSensetop ten pick, a WordStockbestseller, a best book of the year for Publishers Weekly, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, and the Economist, and a Washington Postrave. Spook Countryis the perfect follow-up to Pattern Recognition, which was called by The Washington Post(among many glowing reviews), One of the first authentic and vital novels of the twenty-first century.|Hollis Henry is a journalist, on investigative assignment from a magazine called Node.
