Fast-paced, gritty noir fiction kind of stuff. The science-fiction theme was surprising and pretty cool, at first, but there were a few things that didn't make much sense, and the book ended without tying up the loose end of an impending armageddon from medical technology gone awry. I mean, you'd think someone would have figured out all the murders by now, or gotten an idea about the bots, or whatever. The logic of how the bots worked didn't seem completely consistent. Just a bit strange.

Overall, though, it was a fun read. The characterization of Kowalski is very well done. The writing is clear, and the suspense aspects are very well done (the short chapters and the timing of the chapter breaks is great). I don't read this kind of book much but it was definitely worth it.
