Fugitive Telemetry (The Murderbot Diaries, #6)

I LOVE MURDERBOT!!!  I will read every new Murderbot book to come.  I will continue to reread this series over and over again.  This newest installment is no exception.  Murderbot helps solve a crime on Station.  Of course Sanctuary Moon is going to play a part.  Of course Murderbot is snarky.  Of course this book be grand.  Of course the entire crew should acquire a copy of this treasure.  Of course that be all the plot ye’ll get from me.  Get it.  Read it.  If ye haven’t yet met Murderbot what be ye waiting for?

Seriously ye layabouts, there are at least three good reasons to read this series:

  1. I said so;
  2. One of me favourite authors, Ann Leckie, talked about it in one of her blog posts.  She states, “This is volume 1 of the Murderbot Diaries, and I suspect a certain percentage of my readers don’t need to hear anything more. Go, purchase, download! You will enjoy this.”
  3. Book one won the Hugo Award for Best Novella (2018), the Nebula Award for Best Novella (2017), and the Locus Award for Best Novella (2018).


Goodreads has this to say about the novella:

No, I didn’t kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn’t dump the body in the station mall.

When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who knew?)

Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!
