“In this rapidly converging landscape, cyborg super-agent Major Motoko Kusanagi is tasked with tracking down the most cunning and dangerous terrorists and cybercriminals, including ‘ghost hackers’ who are capable of exploiting the human/machine interface and reprogram humans to become puppets to carry out hackers’ criminal ends.

“When Major Kusanagi follows the cyber trail of one of these master hackers, the Puppeteer, her search leads her to a world beyond information and technology, where the very nature of consciousness and the human soul are turned upside down.”
