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!


Whoops. Nearly read the series out of order. I started #7 a couple of days ago and realized something wasn't right. Checked on GR and realized I missed #6. UGH. I put a pause on that and came here. Luckily this is a quickie. 

Murderbot is on the case after finding a dead body at the Preservation Station. Murderbot will need to figure out WHO the body is and why and who did it. That means our poor bot will need to speak to humans. Gross. 

Humans are gross. Only a few good ones, but like normal they totally suck. I only like Murderbot and ART. That is all. Everyone else can go away. 

But yes, this was fun. I really enjoyed it. I gobbled this up in just two sittings (damn sleep getting in my way *shakes fist*). Honestly? It has been a while since I can say I really and truly loved a book in this series. *looks back at the past* WOW. This might be my favorite of the series!!!! It's been a hot minute! We've had some good, some bad, and some...ugly. Ugh, thank goodness. I was about to toss the towel. This sparked some of my love for this series. Hopefully, the next one doesn't destroy it. 

But yes, it was a good mystery and I had zero idea. Yayy!

I ended up doing the ebook version and it works just as good as the audio. You can't lose. 

All-in-all, I really enjoyed this one. It had a sprinkle of humor amongst the dark. #teamMurderbothumanssuck. I'll actually stamp this with a 5.

I listened to this one a couple weeks ago when the Graphic Audio version came up on Hoopla. I really enjoyed seeing Murderbot detecting. :)
