I'm looking for a sci-fi novel that I read (but did not finish) around 2019 - I'm not sure if that was when it was published, however.
In this novel, there is a technology called the 'Weave'. It's effectively an alternate-reality enabled version of today's internet. It allowed people to interact with each other using avatars and special embellishments on the environment.
Access to the Weave was regulated by (I think) the government in the novel. If you were banned from the Weave, you had to live in the true reality of the world - which was quite dystopian. People banned from the Weave would become invisible to people who were in good standing, referred to as 'On-Weave'.
In this story, I recall there being Pantheons which were in charge of different areas of society. For example, one Pantheon would have governance over espionage and foreign relations, another would be responsible for mining and construction, etc.
I believe the story follows a character working for one Pantheon but may have been a double-agent for another.
The novel opens with the character booking a hotel room, sweeping it for bugs and establishing a clandestine call. This final point I'm a bit fuzzy on, as I was watching Altered Carbon at the time and may be conflating some details.
