Car accidents don't happen. The last one was fifty-some years ago, somewhere around 2050. Which makes Lisa Bliss's fatal crash in a self-driving vehicle unusual. Maybe even a murder. But who can tell?
John Potts doesn't know cars. He was a proud detective of the police force, but now he hates his insurance job. Lisa's accident tells him to look deeper. He suspects it wasn't a simple malfunction.
Alice has never met Potts. She works with appliances-rice cookers, ovens, whatever calls for help-coaching them back to proper operation. She hopes for something bigger. For now, she's being hounded by a refrigerator with an impossible question.
It's unfortunate Potts doesn't know Alice, It's unfortunate that Alice doesn't know about the murder. It's unfortunate a refrigerator only cares about orange juice. It's unfortunate because Lisa's killer knows Potts, Alice, the refrigerator and the clues they hold. The first murder is difficult, the next will be easier.
Who will connect the dots first?
