Six Wakes

Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 9 hours 45 minutes


A space adventure set on a lone ship where the clones of a murdered crew must find their murderer -- before they kill again.

It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood.

At least, Maria Arena had never experienced it. She had no memory of how she died. That was also new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died.
Maria's vat was in the front of six vats, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it could awaken. And Maria wasn't the only one to die recently...

    This audiobook was absolutely amazing! It’s on a whole other level above the other “good” stories out there. It was so uniquely different, that I was very sad to have it end.

    Very interesting to see enclosed crime scene investigation playing out the implications and applications of cloning technology and mind mapping.

    okay, wow. I was hesitant to even read this butI am so impressed. The author, Mur L., has a podcast that impressed me. On it, I have heard her speak about her writing process and abilities with humility. No need for the humble act- the secret is out now: Mur is a sci-fi writing genius! I am going out to purchase the hard copy and re reading this story right away.
