What if you could be immortal?

And what if the price was to give up everything first, including your very life?

Susan Jones is about to find out. A robotics scientist out of MIT, Susan is one of the inventors of the Sexbot, the world’s most advanced robot sex toy.

Sexbots combine the cutting edge of robotics, sex dolls, and artificial intelligence into one sensational product. Marketed to the richest of the rich, they’re beautiful, they’re smart, and oh so sexy – so realistic, in fact, that they’re almost more human than humans themselves. Sexbots have made Susan, and the company she works for, Suncoast Cybernetics, vastly wealthy.

But Susan is working on a new project. She has stumbled upon the key to immortality – which is to download human awareness into intelligent machines. She conducts her first experiments on chimpanzees, and the process works.

Concerned by the ethics of the discovery, Susan tries to delay the project. But Suncoast is eager to move forward with human trials. CEO Howard Neale believes immortality will be worth hundreds of billions of dollars and wants to rush the product to market, while company Chairman James Walsh is dying of cancer and wants to use the technology to save himself.

The company sends the assassins Mr. Blue and Mr. Green to murder Susan at her home. Just before they kill her, Susan runs to her private lab, and downloads herself into the most intelligent machine she has at hand – Number Nine, the prototype for the ninth generation of Sexbots.

Number Nine is faster, stronger, and more sexual than any human. Now, Susan is inside Number Nine, dead and yet alive, and on the run. Pursued by Mr. Blue and the militarized security forces of the company, and with a bomb inside her set to go off in 24 hours, Nine must use her smarts, her physical gifts and her hedonistic sexuality to survive.

Sexbot is fast-paced, sexy, pedal to the metal adventure, with twists, turns and surprises galore.
