Publisher's Summary

The fourth and final part of the Murderbot Diaries series that began with All Systems Red.

Murderbot wasn't programmed to care. So its decision to help the only human who ever showed it respect must be a system glitch, right?

Having traveled the width of the galaxy to unearth details of its own murderous transgressions, as well as those of the GrayCris Corporation, Murderbot is heading home to help Dr. Mensah - its former owner (protector? friend?) - submit evidence that could prevent GrayCris from destroying more colonists in its never-ending quest for profit.

But who's going to believe a SecUnit gone rogue? And what will become of it when it's caught?

How many times have I listened to this book?

I have no idea, because I just keep replaying this whole series, they are all so good. If you are hesitating, be assured this will be the best thing you ever listen too.

So Good

I’ve loved this book along with the other murderbot books. Fun, exciting, colourful and endearing. I wish there were more of them. Murderbot is a great character and almost human and I’m sad this is the final book because I’ve become very attached to him and his stories. I’m off to read Martha’s other books now but reckon I’ll miss Murderbot. Once again great narration by Kevin.

As always - very cute

Murderbot is possibly the cutest protagonist I've ever read about - the writing is as always fabulous and relatable.

Great Inclusion in a Great Series

I love this series and Murderbot just grid as a character. He's not like every other action character and his idiosyncratic nature is his "charm".
This was a bit heavy on the hacking capabilities which started to get a bit boring, but otherwise a cracker of a read.

Best new SF idea in ages

A rippling yarn of mayhem and destruction with an interesting exploration of what it means to be human as a bonus.

Another wonderful edition

We’re back again with our beloved murderbot, this was one of the most satisfying books in the series so far. We finally get to see MB back to help his humans and it feels like a real turning point. The first 4 books have the feel of a prequel, will we get to see a more mature happy murderbot from here on out. I for one think so. I can’t wait to keep reading.

Loved it

Lots of action and tension, Murderbot sure does have personality and a cracking wit. I definitely need more of this.
