The Automatic Detective – A. Lee MartinezLibrary: Haddon Twp.
Mack Megaton's just a bot trying to get by, to demonstrate that he isn't just an automated smashing machine, and to earn his citizenship in the process.
When Mack's neighbors are kidnapped, Mack sets off on a journey through the dark alleys and gleaming skyscrapers of Empire City. Along the way, he runs afoul of a talking gorilla, a brainy dame, a mutant lowlife, a little green mob boss, and the secret conspiracy at the heart of Empire's founders---not to mention more trouble than he bargained for. What started out as one missing family becomes a battle for the future of Empire and every citizen that calls her home.
