Six Wakes

by Mur Lafferty

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”.

My Take

This sounded like an interesting take on the locked room mystery. The mystery ended up being irrelevant, at least to me. I found the whole exploration of cloning and its side effects more interesting.
