Reality 36 (A Richards & Klein Investigation) – Guy Haley (Angry Robot)
Meet Richards and Klein – the Holmes and Watson of the 22nd century.
Except that Richards is a highly advanced artificial intelligence, and Klein his German ex-military cyborg partner. Their first case takes them into the renegade digital realm known as Reality 36 and through the Great Firewall of China, in search of a missing Artificial Intelligence Rights activist. What they find there will threaten every reality.

 
The interesting thing about Reality 36 is that, at heart, this an old fashioned detective mystery novel, the sort you would expect from Arthur Conan Doyle and others of that style, but, it is set out as a pure sci fi backdrop. Haley mixes the two genres seamlessly and has managed to bring something very refreshing to the table. The visual descriptions and plot equally impressed me from beginning to end and it just oozes cool without any effort at all. Reality 36 is a late entry into my favourite sci fi of 2014, top job.
