The Naked Sun by Isaac Asimov
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What at first seems like a simple whodunit begins to set the stage for the larger story of Asimov's grand science fiction series of books. Daneel is not yet starting to weigh in on these larger philosophical themes, but Elijah is, and Daneel is certainly listening in. This book is interesting on its own merits, even while it starts to get scary in terms of how it forecasts future developments.
This is definitely a must-read book if you're going to read Asimov's science fiction at all. The story of Asimov's universe really starts to get going in these humble beginnings.
