In Solaria, robots vastly outnumber humans and people go their whole lives without seeing another person, yet on this planet, a murder has been committed. Elijah soon finds that he is in the middle of a conspiracy that goes beyond one murder and will affect more than just one planet. Elijah Baley, and Earthman detective, is asked for by name to investigate the death of Rikaine Delmarre on a distant planet. The planet, Solaria, contains only a few thousand people and has no crime and so no police. Some of those on Earth feel that the outer planets, such as Solaria, pose a threat to them. Elijah is also told it is important that he find out as much about Solaria while he is there.

Wagner Support SF Reviews. Book cover art by Stephen Youll 1st , Michael Whelan 2nd. While it may not be the naked masterpiece that The Caves of Steel was, The Naked Sun is an absorbing and fun little murder mystery whose mildly dated and sometimes far-fetched elements don't hamper its readability, half a century on, in any but the most trivial ways.
