An odd little book, nominally SF but written like hardboiled detective fiction from the 1930s. May have got 3 stars but for the bait and switch.

When Gravity Fails by George Alec Effinger was published just three years after William Gibson’s Neuromancer. Like Gibson’s Case, Effinger’s Audran Marîd requires a wired brain to get the most out of virtual reality. Case uses a plug in his head to exercise his mad hacking skills in an abstract virtual space. Audran has his mental processing power and stamina amped up by implants. Audran can become a simulacrum of a fictional detective like Nero Wolfe. The villain, meanwhile, is dressing like James Bond and ordering his martinis shaken, not stirred. Unlike Case, Audran has the machine forced on him by the local godfather, who needs him to solve an underworld crime. The story takes place in a large middle eastern city that resembles Cairo and has a cast of characters that would be at home in a future remake of Casablanca. Effinger tells a good story.… (mere)

Had i read this book in the 80s or 90s, i would have loved it, as it provides exactly what i had expected then from a noir cyberpunk. Unfortunately, today it feels seriously dated - not only in its technology, but also in its form and storyline. Also, it's supposedly set in an Arab world, but the characters think American, behave American and speak American - nothing actually feels Middle Eastern at all, but rather Chicago.

En un futuro no demasiado lejano, en el que la Unión Soviética ha sufrido un proceso irreversible de balcanización y Occidente ha perdido el protagonismo que detenta en la actualidad, los Países Árabes controlan en gran medida el destino de las naciones, y su cultura y tradiciones florecen incorporado los últimos avances de la tecnología y la informática.
En este marco se desarrollan las peripecias de Marid Auran, un hijo del Budayén, el barrio maldito donde prosperan la corrupción y la violencia.
Marid empieza a conocer los métodos utilizados por Bey para ejercer su poder mientras se encuentra convertido en un instrumento más de éste, vislumbrando el escalofriante alcance del mafioso en el mundo. Sin embargo, abandonado junto a Bey en lo más profundo del desierto, sabe que en esa ocasión la supervivencia de ambos depende tan solo de la capacidad de su organismo para soportar una deshidratación cuyos efectos bloquea artificialmente.
