Touch is the wildly original and masterfully suspenseful second novel from highly acclaimed author Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

Kepler never meant to die this way—viciously beaten to death by a stinking vagrant in a dark back alley. But when reaching out to the murderer for salvation in those last dying moments, a sudden switch takes place. Now Kepler is looking out through the eyes of the killer himself, staring down at her own broken and ruined body lying in the dirt of the alley.

Instead of dying, Kepler has gained the ability to roam from one body to another—to jump into another person’s skin, see through his or her eyes, and live his or her life—be it for a few minutes, a few months, or a lifetime.

Kepler means these host bodies no harm; she even comes to cherish them intimately like lovers. But when one host, Josephine Cebula, is brutally assassinated, Kepler embarks on a mission to seek the truth—and avenge Josephine’s death.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A brilliantly balanced knife’s edge of a book—fast-paced and thrilling, it’s somehow also languorous, thoughtful, intelligently intimate. Kepler is a thoroughly absorbing and sympathetic anti-hero, trying to minimize harm while striving for survival.”


  • “Fast-paced, imaginative…masterful.”

    Washington Post

  • “The high stakes and breakneck pace of the plot will draw…[listeners] in, and the meditations on what it means to be human and to be loved will linger long after the last shot is fired.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A work of sparkling originality that works both as mesmerising thriller and exploration of what it means, at the most profound level, to be human.”

    Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls

  • A 2015 Washington Post Best Book Selection for Science Fiction and Fantasy Books
