Couldn’t have been better. A thriller but with depth and well-crafted intrigue. Kinda like Asimov meets Grisham. Loved the characters, loved the concept, loved the book. – Amazon Review
A legal thriller where the law of today must deal with the machines of tomorrow.
Four men are dead. An android has blood on its hands.
Attorney Joshua James accepts a fee of one million dollars to defend the android. The case appears hopeless, but Josh needs the money. As he delves into the mystery behind the killings, he becomes convinced that the android didn’t act on its own. The leaders of the corporation that built it deny all responsibility. They cast blame on the “ghost” of their former CEO. He died months before the murders, but a simulation of his mind continues to exist in a vast computer system.
When the trial begins, Josh engages in an intense legal battle with the prosecution. But there’s more at stake than he knows. Someone isn’t willing to wait for justice to run its course, and not everyone will live to see the final verdict.
