No, I didn’t kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn’t dump the body in the station mall.
When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who knew?)
Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!
Note: Fugitive Telemetry is book 6 in Murderbot Diaries series, however it is set between Exit Strategy and Network Effect.
In a twist of irony, we get to see Murderbot investigating…..a murder! It’s always such a pleasure to delve into the delightful world of Murderbot and this book continues the fun ride.
Like any good detective noir worth it’s name, the book begins with a corpse. We then get treated to a brilliant whudunit plot. Murderbot becomes a attached to the investigation to help to PreservationAux security team and as usual it blends in with the subtlety of a jackhammer. The mystery is quite well done and suspense is maintained well till the climax.
Is it GrayCris seeking revenge for the events at TranRollinHyfa? Or is it a new enemy lurking around the corner? Is Dr. Mensah the target? RAFO!
It certainly stays true to it’s soul and makes for one feel good read!

When you are all out of heroes, all that’s left are the villains. Seven bloodthirsty monsters. One town. Their last hope. Reminiscent of Seven Samurai, but featuring monsters, this is just plain EPIC![Link to full review] […]
