In a distant future where sentient humanoid robots pass for human, someone or some thing is out to destroy the seven great robots of the world. Europol's top detective Gesicht is assigned to investigate these mysterious robot serial murders--the only catch is that he himself is one of the seven targets.

When robots become so highly advanced in function, yet so similar in kind to humans, societal resistance is inevitable. In this backdrop of technophobic discrimination, Europol's top robot detective Gesicht and Atom, the most advanced robot in the world continue their investigation into the serial murders of the great robots of the world. The leaves of this mystery masterfully unfold into a complex intersection of reactionary robot hate groups, global politics, and an exploration of robot identity.

This volume gets intense. I love the way the discrimination is depicted, it's so historically accurate. And I love how the psyches and motives of bad guys are explored to better understand why they think and act the way they do. All the characters, even minor characters, are well-rounded and memorable.
Also, I'm not sure what the Booklist review is taking about, but this isn't the last volume.
