Bosch meets I, Robot: a police procedural thriller ripped from future headlines!
After Jake shoots and kills a murder suspect who turns out to be the son of a powerful city councilman, he finds himself demoted to the Artificial Crimes Unit, tracking down androids hacked and programmed to be hit men.
When his case of an “extra-judicial” divorce settlement takes a nasty turn with DNA from a 100-year-old murder in Boston and a signature that hearkens back to the very first serial killer ever in London, Jake finds himself tangled up in the brutal slayings of prostitutes being investigated by his former Robbery/Homicide partner, Maddie - who is now his lover.
"It might not make sense, but the beloved Media tags it 'Murder by Munchausen.' For a price, there are hackers out there who will reprogram a synthoid to do your dirty work. The bad news: no fingerprints or DNA left at the crime scene. The good news - at least for us - is that they’re like missiles: once they hit their target, they’re usually as harmless as empty brass. The trick is to get them before they melt down their core OS data, so you can get the unit into forensics for analysis and, hopefully, an arrest." (Excerpt from Murder by Munchausen)
Artificial Intelligence? Fuhgeddaboudit!
Artificial Evil has a name...Munchausen.

"…packed with action and unexpected developments...fast-paced, entertaining..." (Kirkus Reviews)
“...a great story that blended a couple genres together beautifully. I easily fell into the story and didn’t want to quit until it abruptly ended. I’m really glad that I have the next book in the series. I can’t wait to see what Jake, EC, and Maddie get into next.” (J.D. Bronder Book Reviews - 4 of 5 Stars)
“The pace of the book was fast and there were several interesting characters to meet along the way…You’d better take a deep breath before you dive into this one.” (Frank Frission Reviews - 4 of 5 Stars)
