Exit Strategy (2018) Martha Wells (The Murderbot Diaries)

Exit StrategyMURDERBOT!

(Possibly I was overthinking this. I do that; it’s the anxiety that comes with being a part-organic murderbot. The upside was paranoid attention to detail. The downside was also paranoid attention to detail.)

After escaping mostly unscathed from the discovery that GrayCris had not been terraforming Milu but instead mining alien artifacts, Murderbot discovered that Dr. Mensah has probably been kidnapped by GrayCris.

So Murderbot decides they are obliged to rescue Dr. Mensah. Definitely not for sentimental reasons.

She glared at me. “You left.”

Somehow I hadn’t expected that. I said, “Mensah said I could learn to do anything I wanted. I learned to leave.”

I love Murderbot.

SecUnits are never allowed to sit down or use human furniture whether on or off duty, so I sat in one of the chairs and put my feet up on the table. Then I took my feet off the table because it wasn’t comfortable. I entertained myself by infiltrating the hotel’s security system while I waited.

This series is just so much all the things.

Disinformation, which is the same as lying but for some reason has a different name, is the top tactic in corporate negotiation/ warfare.

I am barely holding off jumping immediately into the next story.
