technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical
entities. But even as humanity contends with the consequences of its most
brilliant creation, there are those who have their own designs for the robots:
Susan Calvin is about to enter her second year as a psych
resident at the Manhattan Hasbro teaching hospital when a violent crime strikes
her very close to home.
When she was young, Susan lost her mother in a terrible car
wreck that also badly injured her father. She now believes the accident was an
attempted murder by government powers who wanted her parents dead. Susan has
always known that there was a faction of the US government that wanted to
hijack her father’s work for military use. Now, it seems that faction is back.
As she struggles to overcome her pain and confusion as well
as deal with her studies, Susan finds herself hunted by violent anti-tech vigilantes
who would revert mankind to the dark ages—and at the same time watched very
closely by extremists who want high-tech genocide. Somehow she must find a way
to stop them both.
