SHARING A BODY CAN BE MURDER
Alex, Kate, Mike, Sierra and Ben have spent twenty-five years trapped together. And there's no escape. They share one body, part of humanity's answer to its dangerously spiralling population.
After more than two decades of bickering and petty vendettas, the one thing they can agree on is that they need a better host, and so they travel to a Death Park where they can win enough to get them the upgrades that will make the next twenty-five years bearable. But things go very wrong when Kate accepts a dangerous offer, and one of them disappears.
Someone is trying to kill off members of the commune. But why? Is one of them responsible? Or is an outsider playing a deadly game? It's hard enough to catch a murderer. It's almost impossible when you might be sharing a body with them...
