A Heaven For Toasters: A Sci-Fi Crime Romance set on the Greek Islands

A Heaven For Toasters: A Sci-Fi Crime Romance set on the Greek Islands

Author(s): Nicholas C Rossis

Location(s): Hydra

Genre(s): Science Fiction/Future, Romance

Era(s): Near future

A souvlaki and some sun. That is all Detective Mika Pensive wanted from her fun weekend away on the Greek islands. Instead, she finds herself caught up in a sinister plot, hatched by a reclusive billionaire with a penchant for illegal genetic engineering. As if that wasn’t bad enough, she has to put up with her new partner, Leo. Leo is an android—or toaster, as people scornfully call his kind. The only thing that could make things even worse would be for the headstrong Mika to fall for Leo. But people don’t fall for toasters—do they?

Set in the near future, A Heaven for Toasters is more than a sci-fi crime romance. It’s the book that will make you look at your toaster in a whole new way.
