Acrylic on Watercolor Board
28" x 18"
A puzzling case of roboticide takes New York Detective Elijah Baley from Earth to the planet Aurora, where humans and robots have, till now, always coexisted in perfect harmony.
Only the gifted roboticist Hans Fastolfe had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime—but Baley must prove the man innocent. For the murder of Jander Panrell is closely tied to a power struggle that will decide who will be the next interstellar pioneers in the universe.
Armed only with his own instincts, his sometimes quirky logic, and the immutable Three Laws of Robotics, Baley sets out to solve the case. But can anything prepare a simple Earthman for the psychological complexities of a world where a beautiful woman can easily have fallen in love with an all-too human robot?
