To test his theories of immortality and life after death, Dr. Peter Hobson has created three electronic simulations of his own personality. The first has all knowledge of physical existence edited out, to simulate life after death. The second is without knowledge of aging or death, to simulate immortality. The third is unmodified, a control. Now they are free. One is a killer.

The Terminal Experiment book cover

Nobody does courtroom drama like Sawyer. Although there’s a fair bit of technological misfiring (wasn’t this 1995?) It’s surprisingly cogent and enjoyable. Ending is very typical, though.
