SINthetic by J.T. Nicholas

My Review:

I had a lot of fun with this one, it had exactly what I was looking for in a scifi book. It really did make me think about what makes us humans, and I really enjoyed reading this. It was sad to read the treatment of the crime when it was revealed to be a Synth. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to more from the author.

5 out of 5 stars

Description:

“Darkly engrossing, SINthetic shines a stark light on the age-old question, what does it mean to be human?”
—Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author  

The Artificial Evolution

 
They look like us. Act like us. But they are not human. Created to perform the menial tasks real humans detest, Synths were designed with only a basic intelligence and minimal emotional response. It stands to reason that they have no rights. Like any technology, they are designed for human convenience. Disposable.

In the city of New Lyons, Detective Jason Campbell is investigating a vicious crime: a female body found mutilated and left in the streets. Once the victim is identified as a Synth, the crime is designated no more than the destruction of property, and Campbell is pulled from the case.

But when a mysterious stranger approaches Campbell and asks him to continue his investigation in secret, Campbell is dragged into a dark world of unimaginable corruption. One that leaves him questioning the true nature of humanity.

And what he discovers is only the beginning . . .
