HE LOOKED LIKE A MAN
HE WALKED LIKE A MAN
HE TALKED LIKE A MAN
BUT HE WASN'T A MAN....


Detective R. Daneel Olivaw was a robot!


When Lije Baley was summoned by the police commission to investigate the murder of Spacetown's leading scientist, he was told his partner would be a robot... a very special robot, created by the murdered man himself.

News of the crime had to be kept secret.  And it had to be solved before the hostile Spacetowners could use it to cause political upheaval.

Olivaw's identity also had to be kept secret.  Anti-robot feeling was reaching riot proportions.

The mission was almost impossible... for a human.  But R. Daneel Olivaw wasn't human.  Detective Baley found Daneel's way to the truth the most terrifying experience of his life.

THE PLANET SOLARIA
COULD DESTROY EARTH
IN TWO SECONDS FLAT ...


And probably would - eventually.

Solaria was powerful and power-hungry.  It had taken over two hundred years to develop the ultimate weapon - a massive army of robots that could obliterate Earth and rule the universe in a matter of days.

But now that would have to wait.

One of Solaria's most eminent scientists had suddenly been found brutally murdered.  Only Earth's most famous detective, Elijah Baley, could solve the dark, baffling mystery.  Solaria demanded his help.

Baley didn't want to go.  But how could he refuse?

Earth's very existence was at stake.

OLIVAW'S TWIST

Two hundred years after his humiliating defeat at the hands of the Earthman Elijah Baley, Kelden Amadiro still dreamed of revenge.  Now, finally, he set into motion a plot that would totally destroy the planet Earth.

But Amadiro had not counted on the power Baley still exerted long after his death.  For Baley's vision continued to guide his robot partner, R. Daneel Olivaw, and the extraordinarily gifted robot Giskard - and they were the only ones who could save Earth.

Fortunately for Amadiro, Daneel and Giskard were restrained by the dictates of the Three Laws of Robotics.  Or were they?
