Publisher's Summary

A diamond-hard, visionary new SF thriller. Nailed-down cyberpunk a la William Gibson for the 21st century meets the vivid dark futures of Al Reynolds in this extraordinary debut novel.
With Earth abandoned, humanity resides on Station, an industrialised asteroid run by the sentient corporations of the Pantheon. Under their leadership a war has been raging against the Totality - ex-Pantheon AIs gone rogue.
With the war over, Jack Forster and his sidekick, Hugo Fist, a virtual puppet tied to Jack's mind and created to destroy the Totality, have returned home.
Labelled a traitor for surrendering to the Totality, all Jack wants is to clear his name, but when he discovers two old friends have died under suspicious circumstances he also wants answers. Soon he and Fist are embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens not only their future but all of humanity's.
But with Fist's software licence about to expire, taking Jack's life with it, can they bring down the real traitors before their time runs out?

fast, furious fun.

I really enjoyed this blockbusting story. it read like a movie, with some really fun action, and lots of cool ideas. very cyber punk without being clunky. simple narrative isn't challenging, but is engaging.

doesn't exactly crash Heaven

Crashing Heaven is a techo sci fi, filled with decent ideas of AIs, gods and and semi alien race. It is a thriller and a predictable detective story. It holds together fairly well but marred by the excessive use of bad language.

Now, I'm not a prude and will accept it if it fits the character but here it is just too much of it. It became tiresome and started distracting from the story.
