    1 thought on “Killing Is My Business

    1. I ripped through the first book wildly enthused and I began this with nearly as many talons at the ready, but even though I m giving this a solid four stars because it s a nearly perfect undercover PI infiltrating a mob boss s organization Noir Mystery I only knocked off a star because some of the middle action was a bit repetitious and there was obviously a lot less cool fifties robot revolution stuff except near the end, but I suppose that couldn t have been helped because of the nature of the [...]

    2. Killing Is My Business Ray Electromatic Mysteries by Adam Christopher is now the fourth entry in this series chronicling the last Robot on earth who began his career as a Private Investigator and has now become a Kill for Hire robot Killing seems to pay much better than Investigating, Although Philip Marlowe was never cast as a killer, and Chandler has publicly stated he hated Science Fiction.The series now consists of Brisk Money 2014 short story Made To Kill 2015 novel Standard Hollywood Depra [...]

    3. Another pitch perfect robot noir romp with my favorite hard boiled android gumshoe hired killer, Ray Electromatic The scenery, the characters, the dialogue are all straight up pulp loveliness Throw that into an achingly convoluted plot, mix with your big metal hands, and you have something great.With Ray Electromatic, it s ALWAYS another beautiful morning in Hollywood.

    4. As a huge fan of both hardboiled noir and science fiction, Adam Christopher s Ray Electromatic series has been a guaranteed hit with me Raymond get it is the last of the robots from an aborted attempt to replace various public sector jobs with a silicon workforce Still supposedly with the Electromatic Detective Agency, his programming has been altered by the amoral supercomputer Ada get it to transform him into a robotic killer for hire Every twenty four hours, his magnetic tapes run out and his [...]

    5. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.Who would have thought that the detached and distant Noir style would perfectly match that of a robot assassin Ray Electromatic used to be in the detective business but turns out there s a lot money to be had killing people With Ada, his monitoring computer, whispering in his ear, Ray drives around LA fulfilling his contracts In KILLING IS MY BUSINESS, Ray is hired to take out an old school crime boss But predictably, the job is a little complicated [...]

    6. Received to review via Netgalley publication date 25th July 2017I ve enjoyed the other books and stories in this series a lot, and this is no exception Take a Raymond Chandler esque world, and apply one robot trained as a PI who has been somewhat repurposed as an assassin Add the complication that he runs on limited tapes of memory 24 hours at a time, no storage than that Add his AI handler, Ada, who very clearly has her own agenda one which doesn t always align with what their creators envisio [...]

    7. Killing Is My Business is the second book in the LA Trilogy, a crazy mash up of science fiction and hardboiled mystery, kind of Asimov meets Chandler and belches forth Groundhog Day The background which was much better fleshed out in Made to Kill is that Ray is the last robot on Earth There were a whole lot of robots, but the concept simply didn t work out Ray is the last one and, despite his titanium chest, is not omnipotent He has memory lapses With this old early sixties technology, his compu [...]

    8. Ray is the last of his kind, having rolled off the production line before the robotic business went bust for good Now he s a hitman moonlighting as a private detective Accompanied by his handler, Ada, a supercomputer, Ray earns a living taking the lives of others Sounds cold and dark but Ray is anything but.The follow up to Made to Kill, gives the character added depth and makes him likable than ever, which is saying something considering the book opens up with Ray on a stakeout watching his ne [...]

    9. If the films Metropolis and The Big Sleep had a baby, it would look just like this book s plot.Ray Electromatic, the last robot in a world that used to be full of them, was programmed to be a private investigatorbut killing pays better His handler, a computer named Ada, gives him his work orders She also wipes his memory each night His most recent job was saving a mafia Don from a restaurant bloodbath a la The Godfather Once done, he is offered another job by the Don Ray is then involved in a my [...]

    10. Killing Is My Business is robot P.I recently re programmed hitbot, Raymond Electromatic s second outing I missed out on the first instalment of the trilogy, Made To Kill, so I read this as a stand alone I really enjoyed this novel for many reasons but two stuck out in the crowd The first was Christopher s cool, charming and quirky writing style, he is obviously having a lot of fun with this series and it shows Secondly I thought that the robot element of this Crime Noir novel was impressively fl [...]

    11. It may not be immediately obvious from the SFF theme of this blog, but I love a good mystery story The Ray Electromatic Mysteries by Adam Christopher scratches both itches Killing is my Business is the second book in this series It is set in a 1960s noir Los Angeles, features a robot assassin nee private detective, and is fun than it has any right to be.What can I say Robots are cool, damn it, and there should be stories with them Or maybe it s my twelve year old self talking Either way, I lov [...]

    13. Ray Electromatic is the last of the robots, and while that is exceptional, his career as a private investigator turned assassin is what make the stories interesting I really enjoyed Made to Kill, the first book in the series, and I went on a jag and read the other three stories over the last few days The most recent, Killing is My Business, relies on you to have read the other books to get some of the stuff that Ray misses due to the essential gimmick of his setup which was supposed to have bee [...]

    14. Ray Electromatic, is the last robot He works as as a Private Investigator but as the pay is better he sidelines as a hitman under the guidance of a supercomputer, Ada Every 24 hours his memory tape run out and he has to be reset by Ada with data for his current assignment Here the action packed novel begins as we follow Ray as he begins his current task to infiltrate a gang and kill the boss.This book is great robotic fun A quick and easy read with plenty of laughs Filled with robots, explosions [...]

    15. I received a free uncorrected proof of this book from I like detective stories, noir, and robots, so this book started off from a strong position Our narrator, Ray Electromatic, is the last robot left, and it s working as a PI hitman under the guidance of a supercomputer, Ada, that handles their cases and assignments It s the late 1960s, so the supercomputer has miles of magnetic tape and modules the size of refrigerators Ray itself recharges overnight and its own memory tapes are only good for [...]

    16. A genre and mind bending caper featuring the last robot in America, Raymond Electromatic, as a private eye Watch as Ray solves the case, gets the girl and all the answersor not Because Ray has a problem only 24 hours of built in memory.Killing is My Business, like the first book in the series, Made to Kill, is a quick and easy read, but gives you all the feels and all the laughs Adam Christopher impressively weaves together noir, with its trademark mid twentieth century California setting, and t [...]

    17. So where I went wrong with this book is I missed out on the first book That being said I had no idea this wasn t the first book until I found out on That being said I have to say I didn t feel like I was missing out on anything I enjoyed reading this noir mystery about a robot in the 50 s who is the world as a hired hitman Who solves crimes but only remembers 22 hours Do I have your attention now because that is what caught mine other then the fact that this is a basic mystery wrapped in an acti [...]

    18. In my estimation, 3 Stars is a good book, well worth the read.In the second book of the Ray Electromatic Mysteries, we begin to unravel the mysteries of Ray and Ada themselves, showing a tiny glimpse of what Ray misses with his 24 hour memory Christopher is certainly keeping us in suspense on what is really going on This one is paced better than the first entry into the series, but I think the book could certainly stand on it s own I particularly liked the descriptions of the cars early in the b [...]

    19. I read a novel called The Automatic Detective by A Lee Martinez in early August of this year so when I came across Adam Christopher s book I had to check my records regarding whether I had already read it Similarities in protagonists and plot Both are Robots made things even confusing.I think I ll give a slight edge to Mr Martinez s novel over this one but I ll reserve my final assessment until I ve read both books again I m building up quite a backlog of future reads and at my age that s sort [...]

    20. Like the first book in the series, this tale of a robot hit man in alternate 1960 s Los Angeles was a lot of fun When it comes to escapist reading, I love both sci fi and vintage noir, and this an entertaining fusion of the two I still don t quite buy that Ray can be the last only functioning robot in the world and still remain inconspicuous while doing PI hit man type work However, it doesn t pay to think too hard about plot details in Raymond Chandler esque stories, so I m willing to mostly ig [...]

    21. The series begins to sputterGranted the robot has a daily memory gap, which was ok in the previous novels, but it doesn t work for the readers this time Too many memory gaps made the story too fragmented which gave it no sense of flow or progress.This book, especially compared to the previous ones, was totally unsatisfactory.

    22. SOOOOO GOOD I am actually considering reading the novellas I absolutely loved this book, the characters are just great I absolutely loved it I really hope that he makes another book for this series.

    23. If you liked the book before this one then you ll love this one ,well i did any way could read Ray Electromatic mysteries all day long.

    24. Enjoyed Empire State much This seemed rather lightweight and rather too many echoes of Robert Crais, but not as well put together, and it is quite difficult to engage with the charcters.
