The Sapphire Sirens by John Zakour

This book is about Zachary Nixon Johnson,who is the last Private Investigator on the earth. The story takes place in the future, when humanity has evolved into a robot friendly environment. His own best friend is a hologram with a brain! Things are going great for Zach, and he seems to be putting together a life that works for him.

Then, one day, he is kidnapped and brought to the island, Lantis, with only women, to solve a crime. The queen of Lantis had been killed and it's up to Zach to find out who the killer is, and the suspects include the queens daughters themselves!

I really liked this book because it has tons of action, and even a trial of faith between Zach and the Amazonian women! The book went a little slow, but not everything in life is fast, and the author stayed in the role of Zach the whole time. Some parts are hard to understand and I found myself skimming every once in a while, but then the action grabs you and keeps you on your toes until the end! I felt that the setting could be our possible future, and the author portrays everything excellently. I would recommed this to peoplewho like to read fiction and science fiction.

I rated this a two becuase it would be a little mature for som people under 12.
