Mickey Reichert, a former pediatrician, begins a new science fiction series with I, Robot, to Protect with Dr. Susan Calvin, a recently graduated psychiatrist beginning a new job at a major hospital. Her assignment to the Pediatric Inpatient Psychiatric Unit brings her four children with long-term problems. Starling suffers from dementia, Monterrey hasn't spoken for six years, Diesel is morbidly obese, depressed, and has oppositional-defiant disorder, and Sharicka is a four-year-old demon. Matters heat up when Susan begins work on a project using nanorobots injected into patients to determine why their brains malfunction. The Society for Humanity pickets the hospital to stop all such efforts. Then two patients blow themselves up in public places.

From official release/information:

Product Description: First in an all-new trilogy inspired by Isaac Asimov's legendary science fiction collection I, Robot.

2035: Susan Calvin is beginning her residency at a Manhattan teaching hospital, where a select group of patients is receiving the latest in diagnostic advancements: tiny nanobots, injected into the spinal fluid, that can unlock and map the human mind.

Soon, Susan begins to notice an ominous chain of events surrounding the patients. When she tries to alert her superiors, she is ignored by those who want to keep the project far from any scrutiny for the sake of their own agenda. But what no one knows is that the very technology to which they have given life is now under the control of those who seek to spread only death...
