Ambitious geneticist Geoffrey Bartell is fighting for his life. His company is under legal and political attack while his marriage crumbles around him. Desperate to recapture his once idyllic life he comes upon the perfect solution by creating a clone of himself, and together they set about picking up the pieces.

But the perfection is short-lived as the two’s priorities begin to diverge. As the jealousies and resentments build Bartell comes to realize that while living alone was difficult, living as two may be impossible. Things take a dark turn and before long Bartell finds himself at the center of a criminal murder trial in which he now must fight to salvage what life he can.

"Dark and edgy. The mystery and intrigue kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down." -ML

Predictable but eloquent

 on 19 November 2017
By James B
Reminiscent of the man with two Heart’s but well written. A nice n courtroom drama mixed with a pinch of SciFi. A well balanced modern love story, wrapped in moral caution. I liked it.

Highly recommended!

This is a great tale, superbly written and with a twist which – while I spotted mid-way through – still satisfied greatly. I urge you to read this novella.

A brilliant read!!!

Boshoff has managed to concoct some delicate concepts to digest in this gripping little set of twists and turns.

I loved this book. The concept, the writing, the pace. all very entertaining. my only complaint? it ended too quickly – I mean that the ending, for me,. was a bit abrupt and also it was so good and raced along, it was actually too short. but a very good read.

a short easy read. May stimulate thought on priorities in life

Suspense but only just

An enjoyable short read but it was a little obvious what the twist ways- both characters and story line believable

Thought provoking!!!!

Forget the ethics or the morality…..a real snapshot of the reality of living with dual identical personage. Fantastic and unprecedented legal ramifications. An element of rewriting/rewinding oneself. A real “do over”. Great.
