     Constable Joe Sault has finally made Detective.

     However, after the messy Cavallon affair, there is little chance he’ll ever be assigned a case. Instead, he and his partner at the Autonomous Droid Unit, Dennis Hennessey, patrol the streets as Bot Defusers, cleaning up messes involving robots and the artificial intelligences that inhabit them.

     But when a gangland shooting spree ties up every other detective, Sault is handed his first homicide—the brutal murder of an indolent construction worker. “It’s a minor case, a slam-dunk, open and shut, don’t stir up trouble and this could reset your career,” he is told. But there’s a newly discovered DaVinci on display at the museum and Sault suspects a connection. Suddenly, a slam-dunk seems as unlikely as ever getting another shot at being a working detective.

     Sault must solve the murder while juggling his regular caseload which includes a cosmetics fraud involving nanobot swarms that threatens to turn deadly and a police warehouse break-in that can’t be explained.

     Meanwhile, life at home is a rollercoaster as his wife deals with her bitterness over his part in ending her career, his daughter is growing up too fast, and his son may be too deeply involved in violent games of war.

     And then there’s Vivia, his alluring AI assistant whose obsessive need to serve may prove his undoing…if nothing else does.

The near future...
     Reality is blended (virtual, augmented, and holographic) and artificially intelligent robots have recently become available to the average consumer.
     In Victoria, Canada, Constable Joseph Sault is out of touch with his children, possibly losing his wife to another man and his father to dementia, and constantly in trouble with his superiors. Feeling isolated and powerless, he finds solace only in his work. It’s a shaky balance that probably isn’t really working.
     Investigating a simple traffic accident lands him in the middle of what might be a conspiracy with world-shaking implications.
     When the prime suspect turns out to be his wife’s employer, his work and personal life collide. And, worse yet, his only ally is a distractingly attractive hologram.
     Cornered and out of options, Sault risks everything in a desperate bid to outwit the man who has the world’s most powerful artificial intelligence at his command
