As a replicant, or "technohuman", Detective Bruna Husky knows two things: humans bioengineered her to perform dangerous, undesirable tasks, and she has just 10 years on the United States of Earth before her body automatically self-destructs. But with "antitechno" rage on the rise and a rash of premature deaths striking her fellow replicants, she may have even less time than she 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.

Any book that makes me think about ideas that I have never thought about before I consider to be a strong book. The idea that a person's personality, their character, can be formed by the memories of their past, even if those memories are fake, implanted, is quite an extraordinary concept to me. I have mulled this over in my noggin for awhile now.
IM A BIG FAN OF AUDIBLE THAY CAN MAKE DREAMS JUST AS BOOKS DO. THE TRUEST MAGIC I'VE EVER KNOWN ARE BOOKS IN ANY FORMAT ..
Robotic crime cop
The technology of techno 's and the T.P. parts.
She's. Vary talented women keeping up with this book you have to be openly in a zone .She pulls this off and that's not faked. It's magic together.
Yes the struggles within to cope with discrimination. Of one whom longs to be excepted.
If you like techno thriller's? Get it.
My wife loved this I listened to it recently and although I am pretty forgiving with Sci FY these days I found it to be kind of soapy...Maybe Just me but I thought there were some areas that were left unexplained. Pace was a bit uneven. I would recommend this to an avid Sci FI reader so you can judge for yourself...
Enjoy the adventure
This is a book about a future world that includes Androids. The main character is an Android and has been hired to determine who is committing hideous crimes against fellow Replicates. “Tears in Rain” will be running through my mind long after the listen. Not only due to the narrator’s haunting voice but also due to questions raised by the author throughout the book; including “Why me?”, “How long do I have left?”, and my favorite “Am I just being paranoid?”.
This audio book was very interesting and fast paced and all the characters were dynamic, interesting, and fun. The narration was great Hope some day there will be a book 2.
No, I don't re-listen to books
The main character, Bruna Husky. She was complicated, flawed, smart and interesting.
No, I had never heard her before. This was an good performance.
It made me think.
