Mussolini clones that won't stay dead. The power to re-create others—forever. Memory and identity are no longer unique. Trapped inside the cloning facility at a time when humans are undergoing their final death rattle on a prion-infected earth, Fausto struggles to re-create the world he once knew. Or did he ever know it?
