This is the second book in the iBooks spinoff series based on Asimov's robot mysteries and the Robot City and Robots and Aliens series. Overall it fits into the Foundation Series acceptably. This book is a mystery much like Mark's first Mirage.

I think overall this book is better written than Mirage, and is certainly better plotted than the Robot City and Robots and Aliens series. The book is believable and entertaining, without having to suspend too much disbelief. I enjoyed it, although the book isn't important to the development of Foundation Series overall.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743412974, Paperback)

Coren Lanra is the head of security for Dynan Manuel Industries. A former Special Service sgent he's never cared for bureaucracy, piracy or deception. And he hates mysteries. Lanra's troubles begin with the death of Nyron Looms, daughter of Dynan president Rega Looms, during an ill-fated mission to smuggle illegal immigrants from Earth to the colony Nova Levis- all were apparently murdered, but why? The only clue might be contained within the positronic brain of a robot that had accompanied the victims, but it has been deactivated and Lanra is denied access to its memories. To make matters even worse, he is soon confronted with a puzzling complication: a possible connection between the murders and twenty babies who were snatched from an orphanage over two decades ago. With the help of roboticist Derec Avery and Auroran ambassador Ariel Burgess- whom the security chief had aided in exposing an anti-robot conspiracy on Earth a year before- Lanra searches for an answers to a twenty-five year-old mystery...and for the identity of a killer, before more lives are lost.
