With a touch of Ben Winters and Philip K. Dick, The Day Before is the first step down a path that will have you looking over your shoulder and questioning what it means to be human.
A body is found in the Alabama wilderness. The question is: Is it a human corpse…or is it just piece of discarded property?
Agent Samantha Rose has been exiled in a backwater assignment for the Commonwealth Bureau of Investigation, a death knell for her career. But then Sam catches a break—a murder—which could give her the boost she needs to get her life back on track. There’s a snag, though: the body is a clone, and technically that means it’s not a homicide. And yet, something about the body raises questions, not only for her, but for coroner Linsey Mackenzie.
The more they dig, the more they realize nothing about this case is what it seems…and for Sam, nothing about Mac is what it seems, either.
This case might be the way out for her…but that way could be in a bodybag.
"Orphan Black-esque…" – The Mary Sue
“Brooks nails this solid but twisty near-future sci-fi police procedural that feels as real as it does dangerous.”
– Jason LaPier author of UNEXPECTED RAIN
“…a relentless thriller which only pauses to pull the floor out from under you, leaves you asking what it means to be a person, and how far you’d go to make what-if what was.”
– JC Nelson author of FREE AGENT
