Delete All Suspects

Oh, the Turing books. I love it when authors can come up with truly unique characters. These books revolve around a computer–an artificial intelligence based computer named Turing. Throughout the books, Turing explores her dawning self awareness, and how this complicates her existence. Each individual book has some sort of mystery–murder, embezzlement, scams–that Turing and her small group of human friends must try and solve. The stories themselves are pretty run-of-the mill, with criminals doing crimes that are eventually discovered through clever police work and a considerable amount of processing power. However, the interplay between the characters (several of which are computers themselves, and Turing is always trying to discover if these computers have become self aware also) and how a newly self aware computer explores her new world.
