From Publishers Weekly
Reichert sells her heroine short in her third SF suspense tale based on Isaac Asimov's famous works. Dr. Susan Calvin is finishing her psych residency at Manhattan Hasbro Hospital when a former colleague and robotics researcher is murdered, apparently by a robot. Susan knows that the First Law of Robotics prevents robots from taking any action that could harm a human. She suspects either the Society for Humanity or the secret DoD group Cadmium, as both have violent agendas involving robots and both have made attacks on her and those close to her in the past. Susan resolves to clear the name of N8-C and his creator, Lawrence Robertson, but shortly finds herself dodging bullets again. When someone shoots at her in Central Park, she is rescued by a passing jogger, Pal Buffoni, whom she invites into her life. Despite being described as brilliant, she misses many clues that readers are likely to notice. The mystery falls flat and its heroine comes off as a fool. Agent: John Silbersack, Trident Media Group. (Feb.) \n

The final volume in this prequel trilogy that takes a look at the life of a young Susan Calvin and and the stressful psychological forces in her life that conspired to shape her into the world's foremost robopsychologist finds Susan desperately trying to regain her sense of self after the two attempts to kill her - one by the Society for Humanity and the other from the quasi-governmental organization known as Cadmium - for a rumored code that is supposed to circumvent the Three Laws of Robotics in the positronic brain.
She has just resumed her medical residency when a Code Blue and a Code Silver is announced over the hospital's intercom system. Rushing to assist, Susan realizes that she doesn't know what a Code Silver is. She soon discovers the meaning when she discovers Nate - the hospital's humanform robot standing over the battered remains of a doctor, the bloodied murder weapon in his hands.
No robot can kill a human. It's obvious to Susan that Nate has been framed and she does everything in her power to clear him - even if it means going head to head with Cadmium in a deadly endgame which could end in her death.
Mickey Zucker Reichert has deftly written an engaging and intriguing mystery that stays true to the universe that the late Isaac Asimov created. I was a bit sad to say goodbye, for now to Susan Calvin upon the turn of the last page.
I do hope there are more well written authorized sequels to come.
To the author, do not quit on this series. The ends hints at a fourth book, so when can we expect to see it?
