When Turing Hopper, Artificial Intelligence Personality extraordinaire, learns that criminal Nestor Garcia’s once-dormant credit card has been doing a lot of shopping lately, she begins to do some sleuthing–and finds out the loot’s shown up at an empty bungalow. So Turing gets her human friends to stake out the vicinity. But when one of them sees something he wishes he hadn’t–and gets charged with murder–everyone will have to pull together to clear his name. The only way to do it is to find the guilty party–by luring him to attack them. But doing so might very well get them “accidentally” deleted…

In We’ll Always Have Parrots, Meg travels with her fiance Michael to a fan convention for Porfiria, Queen of the Jungle–a cheesy cult TV show on which Michael has a minor role. Michael hopes the weekend will give him a chance to talk Miss Wynncliffe-Jones, the show’s temperamental leading lady and executive producer out of enforcing a certain provision in Michael’s contract. Of course, Michael’s not the only person whose career the dictatorial star has manipulated. So when the star is found murdered, the police have plenty of suspects. Trouble is, Meg doesn’t believe they’re going to arrest the right one. Soon she finds herself following the murderer’s trail through a hotel filled with egotistical actors, costumed fans, and a motley flock of monkeys and parrots who, rebelling against their role as live scenery, have escaped from their cages to take an active (and noisy) role in the festivities.
And don’t miss…
