(From the publisher):
Isaac Asimov's famous Three Laws provide far-future humanity with omni-compliant robots, but ultimately lead to the hell of existence with all challenges removed. Thus Asimov proposed the New Laws to Roger MacBride Allen, laws which endow helping hands, not slaves.
But the upheaval this creates, on planets where humans are split into two antagonistic cultures and the idea of working alongside free-thinking mechanicals produces terrible anxiety, is enormous... On the decaying world of Inferno, the no-law robot Caliban finds himself intermediary in the complex relations between robots and humans. But when a key politician is murdered, fear of Caliban as the robot without guilt or conscience, the one who could start the rebellion to overthrow all humanity escalates - and crisis begins.
