Hmm, interesting. It's been forever since I've read it but I thought there was a significant chunk of the plot that hinges directly on the body switching tech.

Yes, that's absolutely key to the murder mystery scenario.

As I recall, Broken Angels is far more of a pure sci-fi story, then Woken Furies has military and crime/heist leanings.

I'd love some new Kovacs-verse books. The Ringil Eskiath story never grabbed me as much even once it started to link in slightly.

There's The Black Man if you want some more sci-fi by him.

Having now actually watched the trailer (on a huge screen in a teaching room ;) ) I am now excited for this. Audiobook queued for my next audible credit, also.
