Big business is booming and state institutions are thriving thanks to advances in genetic engineering, which have produced a compliant population free from addictions. Violent crime is now a rarity. Mayhew McCline, a major corporation that analyzes global trends, has hired a genius: Jayna.
A brilliant mathematical modeler, she has the ability to produce accurate predictions that are both good for the world and good for the bottom line. Her latest coup: finding a link between northeasterly winds and violent crime. When a string of events contradicts her forecasts - including a multiple homicide on the wrong day - Jayna suspects she needs more data and better intuition. She needs to understand what it means to be "normal," so she disrupts her strict daily routine and, unknowingly, sets herself on a path that leads to new encounters, new experiences, and - perhaps most dangerous - new emotions.

Very nice book
The mind of the heroine of the story is quite fascinating...genetically developed to have a very logical and mathematically-inclined mind, she also possesses an excess of curiosity and burgeoning emotions that will later get her in trouble. Watching her develop was very interesting. The narrator was perfect for the character.
It may be because I am influenced by what I am reading now, but A Lady of Devices has a theme of a young woman out of tune with her culture and trying to break free.
The pace of the book is good for listening to. Sometimes I find books that are enjoyable reads too slow to enjoy listening to and land up listening at 1.5 or double speed to long drawn out parts.I gave the story only 4 stars because I usually save five stars for very intense and heavy reading (when it deserves it).
