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. Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together. Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley had little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions.

Loved it! Yes, the story is not obviously related to the first two books in the series at first. However, it does take place in the same universe and like the first books in the series is very well written. I recommend reading "The Grove" before this book. It will help you understand things a little better.

The thrilling conclusion to The Extinction Files is finally here! In 2003, the first human genome was sequenced. But the secrets it held were never revealed. The truth was discovered 30 years ago, almost by accident. Dr. Paul Kraus had spent his entire career searching for what he called humanity's lost tribes - human ancestors who had gone extinct. When Kraus compared the DNA samples of the lost tribes with our own, he found a pattern of changes: a code. At the time, the technology didn't exist to unravel what it meant. Kraus hid his work and disappeared.

I've said this before and I'll say it again...Mr. A.G. Riddle is an awesome storyteller! I was sucked in from the beginning having already known most of the characters. This fact really made me stay involved with the story as it unfolded. The narration of the book was outstanding. I can't give this book high enough praise. I loved it!
