Shout-Out: Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

A space adventure set on a lone ship where the clones of a murdered crew must find their murderer --- before they kill again.
It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood.
At least, Marie Shea had never experienced it. She had no memory of how she died. That was also new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died: from illness once and from injury once. Maria's vat was in the front of six vats, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it could awaken. And Maria wasn't the only one to die recently...

Note: This was supposed to be out in October, but Amazon and other bookstore listings have been updated to show a January 31st, 2017 release date. Which sucks, as this book sounds amazing and I was hoping to read it soon.
