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!

I loved the book and the narrator! There is action, humor, some depth that's palatable, and an immersive world. It did make me wonder about aspergers, the author's motivations for the series, and the trends in certain best sellers that feature not-socially-well-adjusted protagonists.

All the stars and hearts! This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart Review copy was received from Publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. The Murderbot Diaries series is one of my favorite series ever!  I just love the grumpy Murderbot who wants to be left alone to watch its shows.  Finding a dead human, of course now it will have to get involved in the murder investigation and that means it has to talk to humans!  It saves human lives even when they don't trust it or try to shoot it. Murderbot is trying to adjust to life on Preservation.  Its primary focus is protecting Dr Mensah. The security team doesn't want it to have access or work with it anyway.  There is the side issue of whether this has anything to do with Graycris, as they expect an attack from them. Fugitive Telemetry is a thrilling murder mystery with a lot more happening.  Of course, Murderbot is able to figure things out more quickly than the humans, since Preservation rarely has this sort of crime but SecUnits run into these situations all too often. I love everything about these characters. The world building and characters are just fabulous.  I was laughing consistently at the blunt honesty of Murderbot's thoughts.  I listened to the book all in one sitting, unable to stop at all. I highly recommend this series, and always prefer to read in order. Narration: I adore the audio version of this series.  Kevin Free is perfect in his delivery of Murderbot's tone and yes, emotion of its thought stream.  The other characters are distinct and their voices feel authentic.  I listened comfortably at my usual 1.5x speed.   I know I will listen to this brilliant series again and again.

It’s makes me sad that this is the last book, for now. Murderbot has a Permanent place in my heart. I love this story of it adjusting to dealing with humans and the beginning phases of how it is trying to decide what it wants in this new life.
