Synopsis: Evelyn is a researcher in cloning technology. Her husband stole her technology, made a clone, and then left Evelyn for the clone. When the clone calls Evelyn to say she's killed her husband, Evelyn must help the clone hide the murder or risk her research being shut down.

My rating: 3 out of 5 stars

This book is marketed as a mystery and a thriller. I don't think it quite falls into either of those categories. We know immediately who killed Evelyn's husband and, while there are things revealed about his past, I didn't think this had quite the pacing for a thriller.

This book spends a lot of time pondering important topics such as personhood. As Evelyn works closely with her clone she gains a new respect for that clone. She sees that the clone has feelings and experiences. It is fascinating to watch Evelyn's character growth while the reader ponders the questions that learning about the cloning process brings.

I enjoyed the discussion and the characters of this story.

I thought the plot was confusing and often convoluted. I kept waiting for some exciting reveal but I was let down.

I don't think this is a bad book but I do think people who are wanting a whodunit or a thriller will be disappointed.

What a twisted, skin-crawling little scifi tale. Kind of about marriage, kind of about what makes you a human. Reminiscent of Westworld, Bladerunner or even the more recent Comfort Me with Apples. Mesmerized me in the weirdest way possible!

This was a fun, quick read, made all the more enjoyable by reading with friends. I'm generally a fan of Gailey's style, so I expected to enjoy this and my expectation was met. I enjoyed Ivy, the main character, and her snark. I was kept guessing by the mystery right up until the end and Gailey did a great job of making me feel sus about pretty much every character.

The ending, however, was pretty weak. Not the reveal of who the murderer is, but what happened afterwards. The more I thought about it, the less it made sense for Ivy to act the way she did. It felt a little rushed and sloppy, compared to the rest of the book. It was still fun to read though, so only 1 star off for the bad ending.… (mais)
