Summary

As a replicant, or "technohuman", Detective Bruna Husky knows two things: humans bioengineered her to perform dangerous, undesirable tasks, and she has just 10 years on the United States of Earth before her body automatically self-destructs. But with "antitechno" rage on the rise and a rash of premature deaths striking her fellow replicants, she may have even less time than she thought.

Investigating the mysterious deaths, Bruna delves into the fractious, violent history shared by humans and replicants, and struggles to engage the society that fails to understand her - yet created her. The deeper she gets, the deadlier her work becomes as she uncovers a vast, terrifying conspiracy bent on changing the very course of the world. But even as the darkness of her reality closes in, Bruna clings fiercely to life.

More than Blade Runner 2.0

This is certainly a hidden gem in the dystopian world and it is a shame that only a few people have come across this trilogy so far. Montero is certainly a well known writer in Spain but in translation, less people may have encountered her before and this is certainly a deviation from her usual genre of books. But what a story! Intelligently crafted, relevant to current world politics, genuinely touching on the emotions in places and although it has elements of Blade Runner at times, it offers more dimensions and more of a critique on our current world affairs, including populism, the questionable practices of the media, attitudes to immigration, discrimination and all packaged in 'sort of' an investigative crime story as well. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and I have the second one already lined up in my library. Can't wait for the third one to be released and to follow Bruna Husky on her next exploits. A very highly recommended read.
