Classic Isaac Asimov. If you like science fiction, you should be reading this author's works. This is a fast paced story about a detective and his partner, a robot. Together they are investigating the murder of a scientist. The very man that developed this same robot. I saw shades of this story in the movie I ROBOT, so if that movie appealed to you, this book will too. This is the book the movie was taken from-as almost always, the book is better. More in depth character and plot development. This is an older book that may have been overlooked by the younger generation now reading sci-fi. I would recommend this book as a great starting point for this author.
