This is probably the best book ever written about a science fiction post-apocalyptic hard-boiled sarcastic noir detective computer game. UAKM the game was a ground breaking multi-CD game (well before other games had the courage to break the 1 CD barrier) that lead the pack of the "2nd interactive movie craze" (the first was the Laserdisc era that spawned Dragon's Lair et al), both as an early title and as a great title. The book was written by the guy that wrote most of the game's dialogue and it shows in his handle of the character (Tex Murphy) and the setting (a gritty San Francisco). Sometimes a bit cliched or a bit hackney, but it stays true itself and it is fun. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761504206, Paperback)

It’s December 2042 and Tex Murphy, last of the old-style PIs, has hit rock bottom. A run of tough luck and a soured marriage have left Tex nursing a bottle of cheap bourbon and wishing he could sink right into the pavement.

Then a priceless statuette is stolen. From the shadowy back streets of post-apocalyptic San Francisco come rumors that an ancient evil, foretold by prophecy and worshipped by an ancient blood cult, has mysteriously reawakened. When Tex is hired to find the statuette, he plunges into a labyrinth of deceit, manipulation, and murder. He’ll need all of his PI instincts and every ounce of Murphy savoir faire to resist the seduction of darkness and stop the forces of evil—before the terrifying prophecies become reality.
