By William Gibson,Bruce Sterling

m uma versão alternativa da Inglaterra vitoriana, a ascensão do Partido Radical trouxe mudanças impressionantes. Pelas ruas da capital, cartolas e crinolinas misturam-se a cinétropos, gurneys e cabriolés. O trem metropolitano e o sistema de esgotos revolucionam a rede urbana. Tudo graças às conquistas científicas alcançadas pela Máquina: no auge da Revolução commercial, os avanços promovidos pela tecnologia a vapor anunciam a period da informática. Com um século de antecedência. Mas Londres também é uma cidade em convulsão. O alvoroço causado pela turba desordeira assusta a população.

Além disso, uma conspiração mais sofisticada - porém não menos perigosa - parece ameaçar a segurança e a estabilidade de todo o país. Enquanto isso, uma misteriosa caixa com cartões perfurados é objeto de cobiça e disputa, pois guarda um segredo estratégico, ligado a interesses nebulosos. Acidentalmente ou não, ela cai nas mãos de diferentes personagens, mudando suas vidas: Sybil Gerard, ex-amante de um político influente e filha de um insurreto executado; Ada Byron, filha de Lorde Byron, então primeiro-ministro da Inglaterra; e Edward Mallory, um respeitado cientista, descobridor do famoso Leviatã Terrestre.
