Item description for Better Than Chocolate by Bruce Golden...

Noah Dane is a mid-21st Century San Francisco police inspector who, while hunting his partner's killer and investigating a pair of seemingly unrelated murders, stumbles onto a conspiracy that threatens all humanity. Noah is driven by the guilt over his partner's death. That guilt begins to eat at him, eventually rendering him impotent.

Much to his dismay, someone in the city's bureaucracy has a warped sense of humor. Noah's new crime-fighting partner is a celebudroid created to look and act like Marilyn Monroe. Comic juxtaposition ensues when her original programming seeps into her police work.

Chastity Blume is a celebrity talk show host known as "America's Favorite Virgin." Her father forced a sheltered childhood on her, and now she's a vocal opponent of what she refers to as society's "rampant sexuality." Her quest to find the mother she's never known uncovers family secrets she would rather not have learned, along with a sinister plot that involves her father.

Together they lead a cast of quirky characters through this science fiction mystery towards a climax of comically sexy proportions that's Better Than Chocolate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Better Than Chocolate?

If you could cross Mickey Spillane and Robert Heinlein you'd probably get a book with something close to the quick witted, hard-hitting characters moving across its bizzaro future-scape.

The lead character, Noah Dane, fits the mold of the typical detective novel hero with enough of a Heinlein-esque quirkiness to make the whacky vision of the future seem not only plausible, but too comical not to be real. Dane moves through a technologically transformed San Francisco of a not too distant future that comes to life through what seemed like thousands of novel devices and fresh witticisms. It takes a few short, jam-packed chapters to set the stage, but once I was into the meat of the story it was hard not to want to know what mutant-street urchin or sexually charged android would appear next, and what they would do--to who.

From the whimsically well-fleshed dystopia to its endearingly comical showdown, this book is just what the title says it is. Every page demanded louder to be turned until the last one put me to bed with a smile on my face.
Adventure into the future  Aug 2, 2007
This book is truly a sexy satire using futuristic police procedures and robots to tell the story of Noah Dane. When Noah's partner is killed and the killer is the only one from the Blue Scoprs to escape his 50 caliber Desert Eagle XIX, Noah is hot on his trail. With his new partner, a robot that is a clone of Marilyn Monroe, he searches the mean streets of the San Francisco.

Bruce Golden's skill as a satirist, his imaginative depiction of the future in our law enforcement departments, and his vivid characters, intertwined with the everyday personal problems that the reader can relate to, makes for an entertaining tale.
