Agatha Christie Style

Science fiction detective story
in the best traditions of Agatha Christie.
The best is to compare it to Hercules Poirot style of investigating.

Plot:
Try to imagine that you were so good at your work ( Homicide detective)
that you were offered a contract to create copies of yourself
with all your skills and memories.

And now it's time for the best part:
you were just awakened in some strange place,
you are told that your number is 42(funny)
and you have to solve a murder of yourself committed by yourself,
you have 40 suspects and all of them know everything you know
and more,everyone of them knows your every skill and trick up your sleeve.

It's a great book I highly recommend it.

- Professor "1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)"

We have met the enemy and they is us.

Any additional comments?

This is a clever little SciFi book.

You're a detective--one of the best--expected to solve a murder. Failure to do so may cost you and everyone related to you their existence. The murder victim is you. The murderer may be you. You may also be an accomplice. The police chief is interfering in the investigation (also you). And there probably isn't any move you can make that the murderer(s) can't anticipate.

Perhaps the best aspect of the book is it's glimpse into the essence of individuality and self-discovery. It's a nature versus nurture experiment taken to the extreme.
