I read this with friends for our book group. It's a thriller set in the near future, when human cloning has become legal. A geneticist's daughter is killed, and rather than clone his own daughter, he clones the killer using DNA from the crime scene. He becomes obsessed with his daughter's murder and with the idea of being able to look into the killer's eyes. I don't usually read stories in this genre, but I found Cast of Shadows to be pretty engaging, although somewhat weak in the storytelling, especially later in the book as a not-entirely-believable computer game becomes a major playing field for the story. It's an enjoyable way to pass some time if it falls into your hands, but I wouldn't really recommend rushing out to pick up your own copy.
