Publisher Description

Death is inevitable. Especially when you have an expiration date.

As a replicant, or “techno-human,” Detective Bruna Husky knows two things: humans bioengineered her to perform dangerous, undesirable tasks; and she has just ten years on the United States of Earth before her body automatically self-destructs. But with “anti-techno” rage on the rise and a rash of premature deaths striking her fellow replicants, she may have even less time than she originally thought.

Investigating the mysterious deaths, Bruna delves into the fractious, violent history shared by humans and replicants, and struggles to engage the society that fails to understand her—yet created her. The deeper she gets, the deadlier her work becomes as she uncovers a vast, terrifying conspiracy bent on changing the very course of the world. But even as the darkness of her reality closes in, Bruna clings fiercely to life.

"I love good science fiction because it is so thought provoking.....makes me think twice about my actions and the things I take for granted. This book is a riff on the android condition as explored in "Blade Runner" - what exactly is it that makes us human? The book is well done - very poignant."

    " Though "Tears in Rain" starts slowly, it builds exponentially. An excellent read, significant because though it has in enormously complex plot, the characterization is simply superb. "

    " Enjoyed this hard Scifi mystery fiction. The future bits are mostly credible without getting too much in the weeds. The mystery keeps you guessing and the protagonist, although not "human," is someone you can care about. The middle dragged a bit, but not enough diminish the fun. "

    " I didn't go into it with high expectations, but I didn't think it was as terrible as some of the reviews I had seen had led me to believe. There were some interesting ideas, even if the narrative style wasn't particularly sophisticated or compelling. "

    " An entertaining riff on Blade Runner, the world and characters of Tears in Rain are actually stronger than the overall detective story. But the book is well written and always offers something interesting and even thoughtful. "

    " I think it losses something in the translation. not that I know what the original Spanish was like but it just reads a little clumsy. "
