LOVE IN THE AGE OF MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION by Judd Trichter

Judd Trichter's Love in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction is a scifi love story that asks the question, how far will you go to save someone you love?

Set in a near-future LA, a man falls in love with a beautiful android—but when she is kidnapped and sold piecemeal on the black market, he must track down her parts to put her back together.

Lead title from Thomas Dunne in 2015 from an exciting debut author

Bad luck for Eliot Lazar, he fell in love with an android, a beautiful C-900 named Iris Matsuo. That’s the kind of thing that can get you killed in late 21th century Los Angeles or anywhere else for that matter – anywhere except the man-made island of Avernus, far out in the Pacific, which is where Eliot and Iris are headed once they get their hands on a boat. But then one night Eliot knocks on Iris’s door only to find she was kidnapped, chopped up, sold for parts.

Unable to move on and unwilling to settle for a woman with a heartbeat, Eliot vows to find the parts to put Iris back together again—and to find the sonofabitch who did this to her and get his revenge.

With a determined LAPD detective on his trail and time running out in a city where machines and men battle for control, Eliot Lazar embarks on a bloody journey that will take him to the edge of a moral precipice from which he can never return, from which mankind can never return.

"Love in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction is awesome. The perfect combination of smart, thrilling, and fun." —Tucker Max, author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
