Publisher's Summary

Detective Sam Benson, a native New Yorker, is brash, opinionated, and candid. Transplanted to work on Earth's first colonized planet, he envisions a relatively peaceful job. But Benson's ruthless nature might bring it to the brink of annihilation when a series of murders occur. He suspects a non-human is responsible - an android who once shared engrams with a psychopathic human. However, the detective doesn't know other non-humans once called his new world theirs. And as Benson obsesses with making a case against the android, he is oblivious to their return and the reason why they consider machines to be their gods.

Great Story!

This is a very well written and imaginative tale. The narration however can be described as sub par at best. The narrator shows great promise but several mistakes are exposed that didn't make it past the sound editing process. This fact doesn't detract from the listener's ability to thoroughly enjoy this wonderful science fiction story.

Captivating story

Starta shows the readers/listeners (I bought the audiobook) of his great abilities to put words together to create captivating stories. Gods of the Machines is a great read/listen and I enjoyed the story, as I do with the majority of Starta's work. The characters have great depth and they relate to each other. His humanization of the robots brings an interesting characterization. The story is plot driven, and it has great sub-plots that keep the story together. It's a remarkable out of this world, suspense story.
