A millennium into the future,
two advancements have altered the course of human history: the colonization of
the Galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain.
On the beautiful Outer World
planet of Solaria, a handful of human colonists lead a hermit-like existence,
their every need attended to by their faithful robot servants. To this strange
and provocative planet comes Detective Elijah Baley, sent from the streets of
New York with his positronic partner, the robot R. Daneel Olivaw, to solve an
incredible murder that has rocked Solaria to its foundations. The victim had
been so reclusive that he appeared to his associates only through holographic
projection. Yet someone had gotten close enough to bludgeon him to death while
robots looked on. Now Baley and Olivaw are faced with two clear
impossibilities: either the Solarian was killed by one of his robots—unthinkable
under the laws of Robotics—or he was killed by the woman who loved him so much
that she never came into his presence! Download and start listening now!
