Meet Nick Naught, P.I.
Imagine a future where artificial intelligence chips have been placed in everything mechanical or electronic but have all been programmed by complete idiots. A world where answering machines talk back, digital watches lie, parking meters rip you off, bombs are bi-polar and technology in general is more dysfunctional than the people who use it, and you’ll only scratch the surface of Nick Naught’s nightmare.
In the tradition of Dashiell Hammett’s Sam Spade and Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe comes Nick Naught, an old-fashioned, hard-boiled, down-on-his-luck private detective with an anachronistic bent. He’s just an analog guy in a digital world.
