Ray is the perfect detective tireless, logical, and efficient, with a knack for wry one-liners. He is also the last robot on Earth turns out people just don t like robots, even if they like the idea of them. As the lone employee of the Electromatic Detective Agency except for Ada, office gal and supercomputer, the constant voice in Ray s inner ear Ray prefers to stay out of sight. So when a familiar-looking woman arrives at the agency wanting to hire Ray to find a missing actor, he s inclined to tell her to take a hike. But she has the cold, hard gold and Ray was programmed to make a profit. Plunged into a glittering world of fame, fortune, and secrecy, Ray uncovers a sinister plot that goes much deeper than the silver screen and this robot is in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

Review:

This first in the L.A. trilogy is a fun, fast read for anyone willing to take the speculative leap a must-add for most fiction collections. --Booklist Starred Review

Genre mash-ups don t always succeed, but this one will please fans of both gumshoes and laser beams. --Publishers Weekly
