"What Gates was to personal computers, Jobs was to smartphones, or Musk was to electric cars, Tim Scott was to AI (Artificial Intelligence); or would be, very soon."

So, when his "Perfect Wife", Abbie, goes missing, and has still not been found, nearly five years later, Tim does what any brilliant CEO of his own Robotics company would do...he recreates her as a "Cobot"-short for "companion robot"-designed to alleviate the loss of a "loved one".

After all, they do have their autistic son, Danny, to raise...and who better to raise him than his own mother?

Naturally, as chapters from the PAST alternate with chapters from the PRESENT, we learn that things were not always as perfect as they seem, and Tim Scott may have ulterior motives...

Though I am not a reader of Sci-Fi, JP Delaney manages to seamlessly merge this aspect of the book into the thriller genre, treating readers once again to a UNIQUE and perhaps cautionary tale of things to come!

I grew to care about cobot Abbie, as if she were a human...

Though not a fan of the debut novel, released under this author's pseudonym, I was impressed by the sophomore release, "Believe Me" and again with this book, and cannot wait to see what J.P. Delaney dreams up for us next..

I would like to thank Netgalley, Random House-Ballantine, and the author for the digital ARC, I received in exchange for my candid review!

This title will be released on Aug. 6, 2019!
