This book is set between books 4 ([Exit Strategy]) and 5 ([Network Effect]) of the series. A dead body is found on the space station Preservation, and of course the first suspect is a recently-arrived bot with “murder” right in their name. But the reader knows that Murderbot would never do that (leave a dead body laying around, obviously), and it is enlisted to help the police figure out the truth.

I do love these books, but this is my least-favorite. I don’t like the idea of Murderbot working with the cops, even reluctantly. The story goes out of its way to constrain Murderbot so it only uses publicly-available information to solve the murder, but I still don’t like having to think about it potentially violating civil rights in a relatively normal society. The ending turns out to be really, really good, but I’m looking forward to moving on in the next book.… (mere)

Digital audiobook narrated by Kevin R Free

Book two in the Murderbot series. Determined to discover what happened when it “went rogue,” Murderbot leaves his human team behind and ventures out to discover the truth, helped by “ART” it’s transport vehicle.

Science fiction is not really my jam, but I am enjoying this series. It feels fresh and inventive, and I’m surprised by how much I connect with Muderbot and ART – two non-human characters that fully support this story. I loved their back-and-forth discussions / arguments. I’m also glad to get more background on Murderbot, and looking forward now to further adventures with Dr. Mensah.

Kevin R Free does a wonderful job of narrating the audiobook. I really like how he interprets Murderbot.

"You won't come in?"
Vai showed her fangs and said sourly, "You're her favorite."
Kai sighed in frustration and climbed the steps. "She can't make you a favorite when you don't talk to her."
