In a bleak future where daily smog warnings are routine and the politicians are dirtier than the environment, the people of Chicago turn to private investigators like Seven Sinclair when they want a case solved right. Seven isn't like most detectives since he's an android. He's not like most androids either. He's quirky and brazen and he's not chained down by the governmen ...more

Loved the book. Humorous in places, but contains a well-thought out mystery that would make Agatha Christie proud.

The characters are the loveable robot detective, Seven Sinclair, and his nemesis, Sergeant Rizzo.

Not your typical detective mystery. I believe what makes this so exceptional is the main character is an android and we are able to see even the most ordinary events through the eyes of this one called Seven.

Murder mystery

Loved the two characters: Seven has a dry sense of humour despite being an A. I. . He's a good match to go head to head with Rizzo a good cop (heading towards retirement) . It's well plotted with clues hidden in plain sight. The plot is 'murder she wrote style' when I had hoped for a crime story like ' 'In Death' (JD Robb) hence the ending isn't as satisfying for me as it might as been.
