You kids get off my lawn. 

Market Forces - Richard K. Morgan I've had a smashing time reading Morgan's books, especially the Takeshi Kovacs novels, but this was a total bust. It would have made a tolerable short story, and I believe it started life that way. The length dillutes what should be a pleasant nasty snap at the end into a character confounding bummer. Plus, it's secretly Wall Street with Road Warrior, which would be funny in a short story, but just gets silly with time to think.
