Since I'm not a fan of science fiction, I approached this series with caution. Within the first couple of chapters, I fell in love with the Turing Hopper mysteries. Donna Andrews has done a masterful job of capturing how computer geeks "humanize" computers. Many of the tekkie conversations that Andrews uses to show the growth of her AIP (artificial intelligence personality) have given me a sense of deja vu, since we computer-geek-types often talk as if computers are human. May not be for everyone, but I think most readers who have a strong computer background will really get a giggle out of these creative mysteries. Can't wait for more!
