She awoke in an alley to the splash of rain. She was naked, a foot-long gash in her back was still bleeding, and her identity implant was gone. Lore van de Oest had been the daughter of one of the world's most powerful families ... and now she was nobody, and she had to hide. Then out of the rain walked Spanner, predator and thief, who took her in, cared for her wound, and taught her how to reinvent herself again and again. No one could find Lore now: not the police, not her family, and not the kidnappers who had left her in that alley to die. She had escaped ... but the cost of her new found freedom was crime and deception, and she paid it over and over again, until she had become someone she loathed. Lore had a choice: She could stay in the shadows - stay with Spanner - and risk losing herself forever. Or she could leave Spanner and find herself again by becoming someone else: stealing the identity implant of a dead woman, taking over her life, and creating a new future. But to start again, Lore required Spanner's talents - Spanner, who needed her and hated her, and who always had a price. And even as Lore agreed to play Spanner's game one final time, she found that there was still the price of being a van de Oest to be paid. Only by confronting her family, her past, and her own demons could Lore meld together who she had once been, who she had become, and the person she intended to be ... Slow River won the 1997 Nebula Award for Best Novel.… (mere)

Ammonite was the first Griffith I've read and it pretty much blew me away. Slow River less so, although it is solid as can be and a good story. Lore, Frances Lorien de Oest (spelling is close if not spot on) daughter of impossibly rich people who do remedial environmental clean-up of blasted sites around the world, is kidnapped. (All this in a nearish future.) She manages to escape and finds herself naked and injured out on the streets of an unknown city. Rescued by a somewhat feral woman, Spanner, she embarks on a different life. She thinks her family has abandoned her, wouldn't pay the ransom, and decides to take her life into her own hands come what may. Of course she gravitate to what she knows and ends up with a new identity working in a water treatment plant. Nothing is what it seems. The book does push the coincidence threshold, but with enough confidence that you just go, ok, whatever. ***3/4 ( )

Adult sci-fi. Lambda Award winner. Published in 1995, this is a look into the not-so-distant future, where the water treatment process is tricky and dangerous (life and limb may be lost) and identities are contained in computer chips embedded in one's hands. ( )

I really wanted to like it, because it has a lot of themes I enjoy, but the pacing just did not hold my interest for more than a few pages at a time. ( )

Woman kidnapped and has identity chip stolen; taken in by lesbian con artist; searches for herself & mystery of her family

Engrossing. I can see why it won awards. ( )
