    I dont remember the author but it was a story about a man who was once higher in the ranks of society but was out cast and chased by the "police".It is futuristic and i remember a special microbiotic suit of some sort and especially one part where he is injured in a stairwell and his suit heals him and rebuilds itself.

    I dont know, i just remember loving this book and it would be amazing to be able to read it again, anyone who looks I thank you for trying to help.

    I believe the book you are referring to is the second in the three part trilogy called "The Golden Age" by John C Wright.

    This is one of my all time favorites in sci fi. Libertarian regarding personal freedoms and awesome in scope with discussions on the fate of the universe many quintillion years from now.

    I looked at the books on my shelf and I have to correct my original post where I said that it was the second book. The one you describe is the first book "The Golden Age". The following two books are direct follow on sequals though. I believe the author wrote it concurrently as one work and it was split for publishing.

    Hope you like the whole series.
