Rate: 5/5 | Goodreads
Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells is one of my all time most favorite sci-fi series. So, of course, I was very excited when I spotted 6th one, “Fugitive Telemetry” is out.
About the Book: A dead human dumped in the mall, no traces, no evidence, no leads, other than the fact there’s no leads itself, meaning someone took care to clean it all up. Incompetent, infuriatingly slow humans, insisting there are no security breaches, as if there was no dead body on the floor. And all the damned social hoops for Murderbot to jump just to, once again, protect the humans. Salt to proverbial wound – most likely from themselves too.
My Opinion: I’m not sure if I forgot something or if there’s a gap between 5th and 6th books. This one sort of just starts, disregarding possible ending of the previous book. But then, I might be mistaken. What I do know is that this is a great book. A slow-paced but not boring detective, leading towards a lot of great banter and impressive action.
Easy to read, short, interesting. What more could one want? A 5 out of 5.
