Six WakesSix Wakes by Mur Lafferty

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The six-person crew of a spaceship traveling to a distant world wake up in the cloning bay to find the murdered corpses of their previous incarnations. They have no memory of the 200 years since they boarded. A great premise for a mystery full of twists, turns, and revelations. Lafferty does a good job creating a world in which cloning is commonplace, making human life and death more meaningless and less valued, while setting up a solid mystery.
