I first heard about this author and book on Twitter -I saw that our Central Library had a starring role as one of the scenes in the story. The story is set in the 2020s in Minneapolis, a brilliant inventor that died 15 years earlier has been resurrected as very life like robot. His former business partner and lover Brendan has carried on the business and had tried to resurrect Alastair himself but didn't get it exactly right. Alastair seeks to find a place for himself in this unfamiliar future and works to connect with Brendan and Brendan's robot daughter Sulla (who looks a lot like Alastair). They are also trying to figure out who created Alastair since Brendan didn't do it, there is a mystery to be solved. A nice mix of science fiction, mystery and romance. The first of three volumes, I am looking forward to the next one.
