This is book number 6 in the The Murderbot Diaries series.
The New York Times bestselling security droid with a heart (though it wouldn't admit it!) is back!
Having captured the hearts of readers across the globe (Annalee Newitz says it's "one of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I've ever read") Murderbot has also established Martha Wells as one of the great SF writers of today.
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!
A new standalone adventure in the New York Times-bestselling, Hugo and Nebula Award winning series!
Praise for The Murderbot Diaries
"I love Murderbot!" —Ann Leckie
"The most heartwarming action-packed literally explosive space opera I've enjoyed in a long time. Martha Wells is the best writer of loveable snarky gender-subversive killing machines out there!"—N. K. Jemisin
"We are all a little bit Murderbot."—NPR
