Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The thrilling debut in the sci-fi noir Walking Shadows series The year is 1933. Even in a world with free energy, robot labour, and megacorporations, nothing could stop the collapse of the American Dream. As the world-spanning Great Depression rages on, the remaining New York–based mafias clash with police for control of the broken city. Elias Roche, former police officer turned Mafia enforcer, works to maintain a tenuous peace between the two parties. Accustomed to settling disputes with the business end of a gun, Roche must expand his repertoire after a violent murder is covered up by the FBI. With the Mafia insisting they're innocent of the crime and the police powerless to help, Roche and his new Automatic partner, Allen, must root out those responsible before the situation sparks a war in the city streets.
From The Publisher*In a very different 1933, self-styled detective Elias Roche and his robot partner, Allen, immerse themselves in the criminal underworld to find the killer and hopefully prevent war on New York's streets when a murder occurs that not only threatens both the police and the mafia but appears connected to Roche's past.
Review Quote*Carlson does a good job populating his gritty, split-level world with dodgy mobsters, deadly dames, and killer machines
