For William Alec Tucker III, the son of rich, guilt-ridden parents, life after death--and cryogenics--provides a gateway to the future, but he soon discovers that he has become a pawn in a vast struggle for power that takes him on an odyssey of discovery that reaches into the vastness of outer space

Welcome to Heaven. Here's a mop.
It's not that simple, of course. First you have to die. Grunge rock, the mosh pit, bad acid, and an eighteen-wheeler will take care of that.
Then you have to survive. Not terribly complicated, toward the century's end, for a neglected rich kid with guilt-ridden parents. Can you say cry-o-gen-ics?
Death comes to us all, but for William Alec Tucker III it is a gateway to the future, and a second chance to accomplish what he's left undone: which is, well, just about everything. Life after death is almost pleasant. Until Alec finds out that he's a pawn in a system-wide struggle for power, and embarks on an odyssey of discovery that takes him from the far reaches of the asteroid belt to the fleshpots of Clarke County, Space. And even further, to the beckoning stars.

This is one of those pleasant and highly entertaining books that begs to be described as a romp through something. In this case, it’s a romp through late 1990s pop culture and 2090s space culture, with a fun lesson about being mindful of how you treat others because you may be judged on it when you are resurrected by advanced nanotechnology.
