To Preserve (I, Robot: Reichert, #3) by Mickey Zucker ReichertAlthough I had known that Asimovs I, Robot series was being expanded, Id quite forgotten about it, so it was a pleasant surprise to find Mickey Zucker Reichert as the chosen author. (I might have missed the first two, but Ill be looking out for them now.)
This is a prequel trilogy, following Susan Calvin, well-known to Asimovs readers as the positronic robots robopsychologist. Although currently a third-year medical resident, she knows that the Three Laws of Robotics cannot be evaded, altered or removed, but can there be any other explanation for a robot being found holding the murder weapon literally seconds after a leading scientist is bludgeoned to death? If US Robotics is to survive, if this wonderful, life-altering technology is not to be lost, she must be able to convince both the police and the public that the new positronic robots are not only useful to the military but also completely safe for the general public.
Disclaimer: I received a free ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Half an hour later, Susan found herself pleading her case in the office of Aloise Savage, the chairman of the psychiatry residency program. In his sixties, the lanky psychiatrist paced the area between his leather desk chair and a wall covered in large, slowly changing pictures of his family. Susan could not help noticing that the route he trod showed dull wear while the rest of the green expanse of carpet appeared practically new. She sat in one of two folding chairs that resembled tiny trampolines. She had anticipated feeling as if she perched precariously on a bouncy table, but the seat molded to fit her hips and buttocks in a proper, and strangely comfortable, sitting position. She clutched at the metal tubing, seized by a similar need to pace but not wanting to appear to be mocking him or trying to engage in a silent parody of musical chairs. Goldman himself had described it to her when his mother-in-law had passed away.
