Summary
Futuristic speculation combines with murder when a scientific expedition on a faraway planet searches for an alien species only to be stalked by a determined killer who may be a hostile alien or a member of their own team
Summary
In 2143 Newcastle, a naked corpse is dredged from the River Tyne. Although there's no physical evidence, police detective Sidney Hurst must discover the identity of both the murderer and the victim, who seems to be one of the hundreds of clones comprising the North family. Their wealthy and powerful dynasty began with three brothers who pioneered technology allowing humans access to other star systems -- and the off-world production of Earth's primary fuel source, bioil. In this deadly web of money, politics, and family secrets, Hurst has just one lead: a decades-old crime with striking similarities to his present-day case. - Description by Gillian Speace
