Altered Carbon

Spot the typo:

"There, in the room full of mirrors, she threw her head down on the disarrayed sheets, lifted herself up, and I saw myself slide into her up to the hilt with a gasp, because now she was burning. She was burning inside, gripping me with the liquid entirely of hot bathwater" (Altered Carbon, Richard K. Morgan, Del Rey edition, seventh page of chapter twenty-seven)

Ansible has been notified.

Altered Carbon is another Philip Marlowe detective story in a sci-fi setting. Lots of kung fu, grenades, computer viruses, monomolecular flechettes coated with spider venom. That sort of thing. Silly but fun.
