Staff Reviews

Raymond Electromatic, the robot sleuth turned killer first chronicled in Made to Kill, has found himself in something of a mystery. If he wants to get to the bottom of this new assignment, Ray must ditch the assassin role and play the P.I. for a while. Unfortunately for Ray, he only has a 24-hour memory tape and a boss who's not always forthcoming with the details. Throw in a missing real estate mogul, a mob boss with his hands in every pocket of Los Angeles and a mysterious woman who ‘had the tools and knew how to use them.’ Taking classic elements of noir and sci-fi, Adam Christopher's Ray Electromatic mysteries have become a must read!

"Robot noir in 60s Los Angeles? You had me at 'Hello.'" --John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author

Another golden morning in a seedy town, and a new memory tape and assignment for intrepid PI-turned-hitman--and last robot left in working order--Raymond Electromatic. But his skills may be rustier than he remembered in Killing Is My Business, the latest in Christopher's robot noir oeuvre, hot on the heels of the acclaimed Made to Kill.
