Summary
When Axxter takes on the assignment of designing brand new military imagery for one of Cylinder's largest and most ferocious tribes, he embarks upon a dangerous journey that will transcend the boundaries of the Cylinder structure
Amazon.com description: Product Description: You're either on the inside or the outside -- and either way, you're in trouble. A hustling young artist finds himself on the run from warring tribes, mysterious conspirators, body-swapping hackers and more, as he tries to both survive and strike it rich on the vertical surface of a skyscraper big enough to be its own world.

Another splendid outing . . . Jeter's latest mad concept astonishes and intrigues as his sure-footed narrative stirs and fascinates. Grab!
