I Robot starring Will Smith is exactly this movie without the detective portion. Bought Caliban at a military post sent to my home via train and the next thing I know I Robot hit box office. They need to give the writer Issac Asamov some credit before doing so.

Allen's first Caliban novel does a wonderful job of continuing the work of the late Isaac Asimov. It takes a detailed look at the three laws, and their impacts on spacer society. Oh, and add a good old mystery to the mix, and you have yourself a good book. But did Allen really have to use 'hell' and 'damn' in every other sentence?

Calibran is a culmination of Isaac Asimov's series (not written by Asimov). This story takes place hundreds of years after robots have made everything easy for humans. The planets greatest robot scientist is found in a pool of her own blood with robot footprints going out two directions of the room. While detectives try to figure out what happened and ruling out robots because they are all three laws safe, they realize that there is much much more going on than just the standard robot development. If you enjoyed the movie I Robot and any of Asimov's books, you'll love this novel. Entertaining and full of great concepts that will leave you wondering if you should use your laptop or not.

While not the same writing style as the late great Asimov, this book was well written and very thoughtfully done. The subject matter was one which Asimov avoided in his long line of books and was a very refreshing point of view regarding the three laws. I would recommend this book and this series to anyone who is interested in the laws of robotics and the effects of slavery in the futuristic settings.
