Staff Reviews

If you're in the mood for a page turning science fiction space murder mystery with clones then look no further. I loved loved loved this book. Not only was it heaps of fun but fascinating as well. Six clones wake up with their old bodies floating dead around them. They have no idea what happened and neither do you. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the mystery unfold while getting to know these fascinating characters. Pick this up for a super engaging and satisfying summer read. You won't be sorry!

— From Patti H.

Six people wake up in a spaceship to see their own gruesomely murdered bodies floating in the air around them. Since everyone else is either asleep or a million light years away, they only have each other to suspect. This is a fun, thought-provoking page-turner that keeps heaping on the suspense.

— From Rich

In this Hugo nominated science fiction thriller by Mur Lafferty, a crew of clones awakens aboard a space ship to find they're being hunted-and any one of them could be the killer.
Maria Arena awakens in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood. She has no memory of how she died. This is new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died.
Maria's vat is one of seven, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it can awaken. And Maria isn't the only one to die recently...

Unlock the bold new science fiction thriller that Corey Doctorow calls Mur's "breakout book."
