I Only Killed Him Once
A Ray Electromatic MysteryBook - 2018
A blend of science fiction and stylish mystery noir featuring a robot detective, I Only Killed Him Once is the newest stand-alone installment in Adam Christopher's Ray Electromatic mystery series.
Another Hollywood night, another job for electric-detective-turned-robotic-hitman Raymond Electromatic. The target is a tall man in a black hat, and while Ray completes his mission successfully, he makes a startling discovery--one he soon forgets when his 24-hour memory tape loops to the end and is replaced with a fresh reel...
When a tall man in a black hat arrives in the offices of the Electromatic Detective Agency the next day, Ray has a suspicion he has met this stranger before, although Ray's computerized boss, Ada, is not saying a thing. But their visitor isn't here to hire Ray for a job--he's here to deliver a stark warning.
Because time is running out and if Ray and Ada want to survive, they need to do exactly what the man in the black hat says.
A man that Raymond Electromatic has already killed.
