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 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 call Mur's "breakout book"!
