Setting is an alternative 1980s London. An underachieving young man comes into an inheritance and orders a cutting edge robot (or cyborg), that is (almost) indistinguishable from the real thing.
This is Ian McEwan as usual, with twisty relationships, lies and secrets, and thoroughly readable, as are all his novels. There is always a sharp wit at play here, which I always appreciate. It is less sci-fi or speculative fiction, than an exploration of human nature and justice. Not his best work, but still head and shoulders above the rest.
