Made to Kill by Adam Christopher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Definitely, a fun read, but I can't quite tell if this is going to be more fun for you straight mystery lovers or for those of you who just like a great rampaging robot private eye/assassin running about the streets of Hollywood.
Me, I like both. It's very Chandler. And as I read it, I was reminded VERY pleasantly of A Lee Martinez's Automatic Detective which has a lot of the same elements.
Still, let's be honest here. The Noir mystery field has a million imitators and what really makes each stand out from the others is just the quality of the writing and the best quirkiness of the main characters.
I think this town is big enough for both books. :)
Especially since its relatively sparse with the SF element unlike the UF element with all that Fantasy Mystery mixes. I believe we need a lot more of this mashup.
Quirky robots are FUN! :)
And this Noir was just as fun as any other mystery I've enjoyed, so double fun! :)
Now on to read the sequel that just came out! :)
