A MOST DANGEROUS BALEYWICK
A puzzling case of roboticide takes New York Detective Elijah Baley from Earth to the planet Aurora, where humans and robots have, till now, always coexisted in perfect harmony.
Only the gifted roboticist Han Fastoffe had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime – but Baley must prove the man innocent. For the murder of Jander Parnell is closely tied to a power struggle that will decide who will be the next interstellar pioneers in the universe.
Armed only with his own instincts, his sometimes quirky logic, and the immutable Three Laws of Robotics, Baley sets out to solve the case. But can anything prepare a simple Earthman for the psychological complexities af a world where a beautifull woman can easily have fallen in love with an all-too-human robot?
Isaac Asimov’s The Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun – the first two Lije Baley and R. Daneel Olivaw classics – are two of the most famous science fiction novels ever. Now, after a wait of more than 30 years, Asimov has finally added a new chapter to this exciting series.
