Synopsis: A robotic murderer.
A planet in chaos.
And the one detective to uncover the truth behind it all.
In 2079, humanity has spread through space and with them, they bring robots. All regulated. All overseen. All in strict compliance with UN standards and the three robotic laws of Isaac Asimov. The first law of robotics is clear: A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. Everyone knows it’s impossible, but when senior detective Harry Mortimer is sent to Icarus B, it’s to seek the impossible.
Has a rogue artificial intelligence discovered a loophole? Is a human playing puppet master? Are these the right questions? With only his wits, Mortimer, his assistant Scott Yvensen and an increasingly bogged down police department must find answers all while under assault by mysterious assassins and threats against humankind itself. As the mystery begins to unravel, Mortimer faces a new enemy who carries him on a chase across the stars and a strange new threat.
But this is only the beginning.

Review: I had to DNF this book. It’s got a very interesting concept behind it, but the pacing is super fast and it’s a bit confusing to someone who’s not normally into robot books. I think this would be a good book for my husband though!

Verdict: It’s not for me, but maybe for you!
