I'd been lent this book years ago by a sci-fi loving friend. I can count the number of sci-fi I've read on one hand, but he thought this one would interest me and he was right. It takes place in a future where Muslim and Arab civilizations are more stable and dominant than their Western counterparts. It's also a world in which people can modify themselves with programmable modules that can do everything from enhance your sexual profile to turn you into a ruthless killer.

Throughout this, the hero of the book, a man both non-religious and unbelieving in the powers of modifications, makes his way through a series of gruesome murders. This is first in a series and well worth picking up, even if you're not a sci-fi head.
