Críticas:

"Robot noir in 60s Los Angeles? You had me at 'Hello.'"-- John Scalzi, "New York Times bestselling novelist"

""Made to Kill "is yet more proof that we should all be thankful for Adam Christopher and his imagination. This tale of robot noir is unlike anything I ve ever read Adam s is a weird and wonderful voice and we are lucky to have it.""--"Chuck Wendig, " New York Times bestselling author "of "Aftermath"
"Adam Christopher has brilliantly deduced what should have been obvious all along: Classic noir and robots are a perfect match. Part Chandler, part Asimov, and part Philip K. Dick, "Made to Kill" is a rip-roaring cocktail of smart, sharp, twisty, cyber-pulp awesomeness."-- Adam Sternbaugh, author of "Shovel Ready"
""Made to Kill" is just the sort of exciting genre collision that marks out Adam Christopher as one of the hottest new young SF writers."-- Paul Cornell, author of" The Severed Streets"
"A smart, rollicking noir/SF mashup. One of the best books I've read all year."-- Kelly Braffet, author of "Save Yourself""

"Robot noir in 60s Los Angeles? You had me at 'Hello.'"-- John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling novelist

"The dialogue is effortlessly swift and clever, and even the B-movie climax is a spectacle to behold. Above that, though, Ray sparks to live, and his antiheroic slant only makes him that much more compelling and and sympathetic. Knowing that there are only two more Raymond Electromatic mysteries to come is the book's only disappointment." -- NPR
"Genre mash-ups don't always succeed, but this one will please fans of both gumshoes and laser beams." -- Publishers Weekly
"A fun, fast read for anyone willing to take the speculative leap--a must-add for most fiction collections." -- Booklist (starred review)

Reseña del editor:

It was just another Tuesday morning when she walked into the office--young, as I suspected they all might be, another dark brunette with some assistance and enough eye black to match up to Cleopatra. And who am I? I'm Ray, the world's last robot, famed and feared in equal measure, which suits me just fine--after all, the last place you'd expect to find Hollywood's best hit man is in the plain light of day.

Raymond Electromatic is good at his job, as good as he ever was at being a true Private Investigator, the lone employee of the Electromatic Detective Agency--except for Ada, office gal and super-computer, the constant voice in Ray's inner ear. Ray might have taken up a new line of work, but money is money, after all, and he was programmed to make a profit. Besides, with his twenty-four-hour memory-tape limits, he sure can keep a secret.

When a familiar-looking woman arrives at the agency wanting to hire Ray to find a missing movie star, he's inclined to tell her to take a hike. But she had the cold hard cash, a demand for total anonymity, and tendency to vanish on her own.

Plunged into a glittering world of fame, fortune, and secrecy, Ray uncovers a sinister plot that goes much deeper than the silver screen--and this robot is at the wrong place, at the wrong time.

Made to Kill is the thrilling new speculative noir from novelist and comic writer Adam Christopher.
