A millennium into the future two advances have altered the course of human history: the colonization of the Galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain. Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together.

Detective Elijah Baiey is called to the Spacer world Aurora to solve a bizarre case of roboticide. The prime suspect is a gifted roboticist who had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime. There's only one catch: Baley and his positronic partner, R. Daneel Olivaw, must prove the man innocent. For in a case of political intrigue and love between woman and robot gone tragically wrong, there's more at stake than simple justice. This time Baley's career, his life, and Earth's right to pioneer the Galaxy lie in the delicate balance.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all three books in this trilogy (Caves of Steel, Naked Sun and Robots of Dawn). Telling a murder (or "murder") mystery against a background of a futuristic society is a fascinating and different way to explore human potential. Trying to solve the mystery alone was interesting enough to keep the pages turning.
Having read the Foundation series, it was also interesting to see Asimov set up events that could lead to creation of the Empire and, later, the Foundation. It has also been interesting to read about the societies on the planets I was introduced to in Foundation and Earth.

Not as good as 'The Caves of Steel' and 'The Naked Sun', but a good conclusion to the trilogy. Helps to tie up all the loose ends.

Written in 1983, this is an attempt at tying the 'Robot Novels' to the Foundation series (begun ca. 1940) thru 'Prelude to Foundation'. It gets a little stilted as the author stretches to make the point and the sexual content places it 'out of time' with the original Robot stories and the original Foundation series.
