RARA-AVIS: Automatic Detective

I just saw this paperback on the new release table at Borders. Judging by the blurbs, A Lee Martinez is a pretty big name in SF/Fantasy. The basic premise seems not unlike Pinocchio in that a robot wants to become a citizen. However, the jacket copy, and title, makes it seem like a hardboiled novel or pastiche or homage or parody or something. The voice used in the first few paragraph certainly seems to be going for a jaded PI tone.

Anyone read it, or past works by him? Is it or he any good?
