Somebody's Daughter by Curtis C. Chen

Mystery Science Fiction

“‘What would you know about family, Detective?’ Statz said. ‘You married a clone from the first wave. What does that say about you?’”

Detective Jake Lanosky is rarely moved these days—not since the death of his wife—but when a cloned girl at death’s doorstep turns up and insists she’s his daughter, he’s thrown into the investigation of a lifetime. Author Curtis C. Chen writes speculative fiction and runs puzzle games near Portland, Oregon. His novel WAYPOINT KANGAROO was a finalist for both the Locus and Endeavour awards, and its sequel KANGAROO TOO is now available from Macmillan.
