Raymond Electromatic is good at his job, as good as he ever was at being a true private investigator, the lone employee of the Electromatic Detective Agency - except for Ada, office gal and supercomputer, the constant voice in Ray's inner ear. Ray might have taken up a new line of work, but money is money, after all, and he was programmed to make a profit. Besides, with his 24-hour memory-tape limits, he sure can keep a secret.
When a familiar-looking woman arrives at the agency wanting to hire Ray to find a missing movie star, he's inclined to tell her to take a hike. But she has the cold hard cash, a demand for total anonymity, and a tendency to vanish on her own. Plunged into a glittering world of fame, fortune, and secrecy, Ray uncovers a sinister plot that goes much deeper than the silver screen - and this robot is at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Great ideas squandered
Would you try another book from Adam Christopher and/or Dan Bittner?
Bittner yes. He's a good reader. The occasional weird pronunciation, but strong characterization.
What was most disappointing about Adam Christopher’s story?
Lots of great ideas that never really matter to the story. A character who has his memory reset every 24 hours, and yet this is barely an issue and not really a plot point. It's like if Memento only bothered with the memory issue sporadically. The detective thing is a bit lost as the hero just waits for people to tell him everything. The time period is rarely used as a setting,
What does Dan Bittner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I'm not sure I would have liked the main character without the performance.
Could you see Made to Kill being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Please no. There are so many more properties that deserve being made into tv shows.
Any additional comments?
I love noir, I love retro science fiction. Nothing gelled here.
