Praise for The Ray Electromatic Mysteries:

“The dialogue is effortlessly swift and clever, and even the B-movie climax is a spectacle to behold. Above that, though, Ray sparks to live, and his antiheroic slant only makes him that much more compelling and sympathetic.” —NPR

“Humor, action, and heart: everything I’ve come to expect from an Adam Christopher book, and then some. A marvelous read!” —Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author of Zero World

“Gripping, funny, deadly, and suspenseful.” —Boing Boing

“Delivers like a punch from a two-ton robot in a zoot suit.”—Delilah Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma

“Atmospheric and charming as hell. Adam Christopher has an extraordinary talent for scooping you up and dropping you into an alternative LA that feels just as real as the street outside your house.” —Emma Newman, author of Planetfall

“Hits hard, spins your head around, and leaves you stunned. So freakin’ perfect you’d think robot hitmen and retro supercomputers had always been part of noir fiction.”—Peter Clines, New York Times bestselling author of Paradox Bound

“Combines classic Chandlerian noir with vintage sci-fi with brilliant results… Truly original and deeply satisfying.” —Kelly Braffet, author of Save Yourself

Unlike anything I’ve ever read—a weird and wonderful voice and we are lucky to have it.—Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Aftermath

“The book I didn’t know I was waiting for – a high-voltage jolt to the pleasure circuits that had me burning through the pages. Terrific fun!” —Daryl Gregory, author of Spoonbenders


“Robot noir in sixties Los Angeles? You had me at ‘Hello'”
John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author

Killing Is My Business is the latest in Adam Christopher’s robot noir oeuvre, hot on the heels of the acclaimed Made to Kill.

Another golden morning in a seedy town, and a new memory tape and assignment for intrepid PI-turned-hitman—and last robot left in working order—Raymond Electromatic.

When his comrade in electronic arms, Ada, assigns a new morning roster of clientele, Ray heads out into the L.A. sun, only to find that his skills might be a bit rustier than he expected….
