A millennium into the future, two advancements have altered the course of human history: the colonization of the galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain. Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together. Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley had little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. The relationship between Baley and his Spacer superiors, who mistrusted all Earthmen, was strained from the start. Then he learned that they had assigned him a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worst of all was that the "R" stood for robot-and his positronic partner was made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

Isaac Asimov, who was named "Grand Master of Science Fiction" by the Science Fiction Writers of America, entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades.
William Dufris has been nominated nine times as a finalist for the APA's prestigious Audie Award and has garnered twenty-one Earphones Awards from AudioFile magazine, which also named him one of the Best Voices at the End of the Century. He has also acted on stage and television in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
Detective Elijah Baley and his new parter, Robot Daneel Olivaw, must determine who killed an eminent Spacer. The delicate balance of power between the humans of Earth and the Spacers of the Outer Worlds rests on their figuring out who committed the murder. William Dufris breathes new life into this classic science fiction mystery, producing a hard and gruff Baley. This contrasts well with the soft-spoken Olivaw. While Dufriss female voice seems shrill, he commands the story well. Ultimately, he is the perfect narrator for the series, which includes three more novels, two of which he is already signed up to perform.
