Don’t you hate it when you can’t remember the name of a book you read years ago?

Alt title: Do you know the name of this book?

Years and years ago, I’d guess at least 17 years, I read a book that I’ve been trying to remember the name of for past 5 years. It’s been bugging the heck out of me.

Long before Goodreads and Amazon, kept track of what I bought and read, back when Borders was still a thing, I read a book about a detective / private eye that was set in the future.

In this future, and in this particular line of work, it wasn’t overly safe to leave your house so you would download a copy of your consciousness to a robot blank and set it a task to perform. Depending on the type of task you set this robot you would use different coloured robots, each different colour had different capabilities, some were faster, some were stronger, some had longer lasting fuel cells, etc.

From what I recall, I really enjoyed this book…but for the life of me I can’t f*#king remember the name of the damn thing.
