January LaVoy's confident narration takes listeners on a wild ride. This near-future sci-fi story opens with blood-stained Tila stumbling into her twin, Taema's, apartment, closely pursued by the police. Tila faces the threat of cryogenic stasis, a futuristic sentence for criminals, unless Taema can prove her innocence. The plot is jam-packed with action and ideas--body modifications, sinister corporations, hijacked dreams, among others. The action alternates between the twins' stories; Taema goes undercover to solve the murder while Tila reflects on the sisters' early life in a low-tech cult and the escape that allowed the twins to survive to adulthood. Subtle but distinct variations in the twins' voices make the dual points of view easy to follow, and LaVoy's skilled nuances work equally well for the story's secondary characters.
