The Automatic Detectiveby A Martinez
Synopses & Reviews
Even in Empire City, a town where weird science is the hope for tomorrow, its hard for a robot to make his way. Its even harder for a robot named Mack Megaton, a hulking machine designed to bring mankind to its knees. But Macks not interested in world domination. Hes just a bot trying to get by, trying to demonstrate that he isnt just an automated smashing machine, and to earn his citizenship in the process. It should be as easy as crushing a tank for Mack, but some bots just cant catch a break.
When Macks neighbors are kidnapped, Mack sets off on a journey through the dark alleys and gleaming skyscrapers of Empire City. Along the way, he runs afoul of a talking gorilla, a brainy dame, a mutant lowlife, a little green mob boss, and the secret conspiracy at the heart of Empires founders---not to mention more trouble than he bargained for. What started out as one missing family becomes a battle for the future of Empire and every citizen that calls her home.
