Publisher's Summary

In the future, when robots have already fully permeated our everyday life, a devastating automobile accident with an unmanned drone big rig kills Nick's friend. The suspicion of murder falls on Nick, a psychologist who specializes in robots, but the investigation reaches a dead end. At the same time, Nick meets Liza, and begins work on an android that will be indistinguishable from a human.

But Nick doesn't realize that he is now part of a brilliant experiment. This audiobook has mystery, love, disillusionment, loss, and victory.

The author discusses creation of friendly artificial intelligence: robots who will never be enemies of man. Yet this risk exists...

Please Note: This audiobook is in Russian.

Smart suspense!

Where does Ten' aktroida [The Actroid's Shadow] (Russian Edition) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Dark and intense robotic sci-fi with a good deal of humor, very much in the style of Azimov's classics. The narration is great too.
