Fast-paced and mysterious, Solomon the Peacemaker takes the reader to the twenty-second century, where cultural norms have changed the way people interact with technology. Humanoid robots, though ubiquitous, are confined inside private homes, giving the impression that all is well with the world. And this may be the case. But in the basement of the Church of Incarnations, one man believes that human beings may already be in the thrall of these robots and The Peacemaker, the incredible computer built as a storehouse for human memory. Told through the words of a prisoner, the novel will keep readers questioning the morality of this future world even after they read the last sentence.
