“No, I didn’t kill the dead human. If I had, I wouldn’t dump the body in the station mall, for fuck’s sake.”
Is there anything better than a new Murderbot book? No, the answer is no.
Fugitive Telemetry takes place before Network Effect and has Murderbot having to solve a murder with Station Security, who aren’t exactly happy about having a SecUnit on Preservation Station. No matter who is vouching for them.
Martha Wells continues to deliver with Murderbot’s hilarious inner monologue while also pulling on my heartstrings and as with all the other books in the series, this was difficult to put down once I started it. So, if you’re like me and are continuing to love Murderbot and their grumpy ways, then you won’t be disappointed. This is another fantastic installment for the series!

About the book
When Murderbot discovers a dead body on Preservation Station, it knows it is going to have to assist station security to determine who the body is (was), how they were killed (that should be relatively straightforward, at least), and why (because apparently that matters to a lot of people—who knew?)
Yes, the unthinkable is about to happen: Murderbot must voluntarily speak to humans!
