As a replicant, or "technohuman", Detective Bruna Husky knows two things: humans bioengineered her to perform dangerous, undesirable tasks, and she has just 10 years on the United States of Earth before her body automatically self-destructs. But with "antitechno" rage on the rise and a rash of premature deaths striking her fellow replicants, she may have even less time than she thought.
Investigating the mysterious deaths, Bruna delves into the fractious, violent history shared by humans and replicants, and struggles to engage the society that fails to understand her - yet created her. The deeper she gets, the deadlier her work becomes as she uncovers a vast, terrifying conspiracy bent on changing the very course of the world. But even as the darkness of her reality closes in, Bruna clings fiercely to life.

Any book that makes me think about ideas that I have never thought about before I consider to be a strong book. The idea that a person's personality, their character, can be formed by the memories of their past, even if those memories are fake, implanted, is quite an extraordinary concept to me. I have mulled this over in my noggin for awhile now.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
My wife loved this I listened to it recently and although I am pretty forgiving with Sci FY these days I found it to be kind of soapy...Maybe Just me but I thought there were some areas that were left unexplained. Pace was a bit uneven. I would recommend this to an avid Sci FI reader so you can judge for yourself...

no character development. no hook in the story. boring, couldn't make it path the 3 chapter.. skip, save ur credit
This writer was so adept I saw a futuristic film noir detective movie in my imagination. Each character was so well developed I could picture thier expression. I was so pleasantly surprised by the plot twist that I didn't see coming at all.
this may be a very enjoyable tale for some... just not me. I simply lost interest in the first third of the first book
The novel is decent and the reader has a pleasant voice when narrating and taking on the voice of Bruna Husky, the main character. However, she has no range and the voices she uses for most orher characters are grotesque which made it very difficult to enjoy listening.
anyone who's a fan of blade runner should consider this book, it's not as good obviously but it is still a good story that can be enjoyed as a sci-fi fan.
we so often seek what we have and know. it is a pleasure to be surprised.
This is a book about a future world that includes Androids. The main character is an Android and has been hired to determine who is committing hideous crimes against fellow Replicates. “Tears in Rain” will be running through my mind long after the listen. Not only due to the narrator’s haunting voice but also due to questions raised by the author throughout the book; including “Why me?”, “How long do I have left?”, and my favorite “Am I just being paranoid?”.
