Overview

First in an all-new trilogy inspired by Isaac Asimov's legendary science fiction collection I, Robot.

2035: Susan Calvin is beginning her residency at a Manhattan teaching hospital, where a select group of patients is receiving the latest in diagnostic advancements: tiny nanobots, injected into the spinal fluid, that can unlock and map the human mind.

Soon, Susan begins to notice an ominous chain of events surrounding the patients. When she tries to alert her superiors, she is ignored by those who want to keep the project far from any scrutiny for the sake of their own agenda. But what no one knows is that the very technology to which they have given life is now under the control of those who seek to spread only death...

Library Journal
Although she is the daughter of a robotics pioneer, Dr. Susan Calvin is still surprised to "meet" N8-C, or "Nate," the resident robot in a prestigous teaching hospital's pediatric psychiatric wing. When a series of sinister events involving her young patients leads her to suspect a problem with the hospital's cutting-edge work with nanotechnology, N8 lends his knowledge to finding a solution. VERDICT Authorized by Isaac Asimov's estate, Reichart (Beyond Ragnarok) launches a trilogy that draws on Asimov's classic I, Robot in a context that is both timely and unusual. This is sure to attract Asimov's longtime fans and lead newbies back to the original book.

In 2035 Dr. Susan Calvin accepts a psychiatry residency at Manhattan Hasbro Hospital. However on her first day at the research facility, she walks through protesters who believe the hospital violates God by creating "designer babies". She soon learns of a top secret project in which nanobots are injected into the spinal fluid of selected patients. When the chosen begin to act erratic, Susan becomes concerned. She raises her worries to her supervisors, but is told to be quiet as this program has strong funding and political backing. However, the program supporters fail to use proper due diligence especially security as the technology is taken over by death mongers out to prove their righteousness at any cost. Paying homage to Isaac Asimov by updating the science, the technology and the three rules of robots; Mickey Zucker Reichert provides a strong thriller that will elate fans of the I Robot saga. The cast of humans and robots seem genuine while Susan holds the exciting story line together with her obstinate need to do right. The late Dr. Asimov would have appreciated this updating of his classic. Harriet Klausner
