On a space ship far from earth, someone is murdering the crew. And the crew's newly awakened clones will have to find their killer--before he strikes again!

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...

What a surprisingly good book!
I thought I was in for some Space Opera murder mystery, but the world created by the author is vastly intriguing and the concepts well defined.

Although in the end everything works out a little bit too well for everyone for my taste, the story has plenty of twists and turns, and it throws a lot of foreshadowing and little hints your way.

6 clones wake up on a spaceship with their bloody murdered former bodies floating around them and no memories of what happened. This book is more than a space mystery but also an exploration of how clones and non-clones could co-exist and long-distance space travel. If you are looking for an intelligent sci-fi novel that keeps you guessing right until the end, this is the book for you.

I loved this book so much that I constantly worried that it wouldn't end well and I'd be so crestfallen... but I needn't have worried at all. It was a fantastic ending.

I love the world building around how cloning could change society, how it could be used, what people would fight over... The mystery was all kinds of tricksy in all the right ways. What better than a mystery where no one actually knew if they'd done it themselves?

So tense and exciting, fun and clever -- I definitely recommend this one.
