There’s a killer aboard the interstellar spaceship Dormire on its 400-year journey, and the victims, newly awakened in cloned bodies, are the ones trying to figure out who it is before it’s too late. This is the new sci-fi novel Six Wakes, by Mur Lafferty.

On top of all that, the crew awakens to find that their ship is off course, and all may not be as it seems with their mission, either. Sci-fi and mystery fans, this one’s for you. About the author:
