Henry Dorsett Case is a low-level hustler in the dystopian underworld of Chiba City, Japan. Once a talented computer hacker, Case was caught stealing from his employer. As punishment for his theft, Case's central nervous system was damaged with a mycotoxin, leaving him unable to use his brain-computer interface to access the global computer network in cyberspace. Unemployable, addicted to drugs, and suicidal, Case desperately searches the Chiba "black clinics" for a miracle cure. Case is saved by Molly Millions, an augmented "street samurai" and mercenary for a shadowy ex-military officer named Armitage, who offers to cure Case in exchange for his services as a hacker. Case jumps at the chance to regain his job as a "console cowboy," but neither Case nor Molly know what Armitage is really planning. Case's nervous system is repaired using new technology that Armitage offers the clinic as payment. Unbeknownst to Case, Armitage pays the clinic to implant mycotoxin sacs into his blood vessels - the same poison which initially crippled Case. Armitage promises Case that if he completes his work in time, the sacs will be removed, otherwise they will burst. Armitage also arranges to replace Case's pancreas and modify his liver with tissue grafts, leaving Case incapable of metabolizing cocaine or amphetamines and apparently ending his drug addiction.

Case and Molly develop a close personal relationship and begin looking into Armitage's background. Meanwhile, Armitage assigns them their first job: they must steal the "Dixie Flatline", a ROM module that contains the saved consciousness of legendary cyber-cowboy McCoy Pauley, one of Case's mentors. Pauley's hacking expertise is needed by Armitage. Pauley's construct is stored in the corporate headquarters of media conglomerate Sense/Net. An anarchist group named the "Panther Moderns" are hired to create a simulated terrorist attack on Sense/Net. The diversion allows Molly to penetrate the building and steal Dixie's chip. Case and Molly continue to investigate Armitage, discovering his former identity of Colonel Willis Corto. Corto was the only survivor of operation Screaming Fist, a microlight-mounted commando force augmented with cyber-hacking capabilities. Screaming Fist attacked a Soviet military base, however in actuality, the raid was engineered by high-ranking military commanders to study the effect of EMP weapons against unprepared troops. Corto's men were slaughtered, but he and a few survivors commandeered a Soviet military helicopter and escaped over the heavily guarded Finnish border. Everyone was killed except Corto, who was seriously wounded by Finnish defence forces upon landing. In Istanbul, the team recruits Peter Riviera, an artist, thief, and drug addict who is able to project detailed holographic illusions with the aid of sophisticated cybernetic implants. Although Riviera is a sociopath, Armitage coerces him into joining the team. The trail leads Case and Molly to a powerful artificial intelligence named Wintermute, created by the plutocratic Tessier-Ashpool family. The clan alternates control of the family wealth and spends their time in cryogenic preservation inside Villa Straylight, a labyrinthine mansion in the Freeside space station.

Wintermute's identity is finally revealed - it is one-half of a planned super-AI entity, although its exact purpose is unknown. The Turing Law Code governing AIs bans the construction of such entities; to get around this, it had to be built as two separate AIs. Wintermute was programmed by the Tessier-Ashpool dynasty with a need to merge with its other half - Neuromancer. Unable to achieve this merge on its own, Wintermute recruited Armitage and his team to help complete the goal. Case is tasked with entering cyberspace to pierce the Turing-imposed software barriers using a Chinese military grade icebreaker which is called "Kuang", a virus-like piece of software. At the same time, Riviera is tasked with getting the password to the Turing lock from Lady 3Jane Marie-France Tessier-Ashpool, an unfrozen daughter clone and leader of Tessier-Ashpool SA. Wintermute believes Riviera will pose an irresistible temptation to her, and that she will give him the password. The password must be spoken into an ornate computer terminal located in the Tessier-Ashpool home in Villa Straylight, and entered simultaneously as Case pierces the software barriers in cyberspace - otherwise the Turing locks will remain intact. Armitage's team attracts the attention of the Turing Police, agents of the Turing Registry who prevent AI's from exceeding their built-in limitations; The Turing Registry hunts down hackers who interfere with AIs. As Molly and Riviera gain entrance to Villa Straylight, three Turing Registry officers arrest Case and take him into custody; Wintermute manipulates the orbital casino's security and maintenance systems and kills the officers, allowing Case to escape. Armitage begins to question the mission, and starts reverting to the Corto personality as he relives Screaming Fist. It is revealed that in the past, Wintermute had originally contacted Corto through a bedside computer during his convalescence, eventually convincing Corto that he was Armitage. Wintermute used him to persuade Case and Molly to help him merge with his twin AI, Neuromancer. Finally, Armitage becomes Corto again, but his newfound personality is short-lived and he is killed by Wintermute.
Neuromancer is a 1984 novel by William Gibson, notable for being the most famous early cyberpunk novel and winner of the so-called science-fiction "triple crown"—the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, and the Hugo Award.[1] It was Gibson's first novel and the beginning of the Sprawl trilogy. The novel tells the story of a washed-up computer hacker hired by a mysterious employer to work on the ultimate hack. Gibson explores artificial intelligence, virtual reality, genetic engineering, and multinational corporations overpowering the traditional nation-state long before these ideas entered popular culture. The concept of cyberspace makes its first appearance, with Gibson inventing the word to describe "a consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions."
