Summary

A 2015 Washington Post Best Book Selection for Science Fiction and Fantasy Books

Touch is the wildly original and masterfully suspenseful second novel from highly acclaimed author Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

Kepler never meant to die this way—viciously beaten to death by a stinking vagrant in a dark back alley. But when reaching out to the murderer for salvation in those last dying moments, a sudden switch takes place. Now Kepler is looking out through the eyes of the killer himself, staring down at her own broken and ruined body lying in the dirt of the alley.

Instead of dying, Kepler has gained the ability to roam from one body to another—to jump into another person’s skin, see through his or her eyes, and live his or her life—be it for a few minutes, a few months, or a lifetime.

Kepler means these host bodies no harm; she even comes to cherish them intimately like lovers. But when one host, Josephine Cebula, is brutally assassinated, Kepler embarks on a mission to seek the truth—and avenge Josephine’s death.

“A brilliantly balanced knife’s edge of a book—fast-paced and thrilling, it’s somehow also languorous, thoughtful, intelligently intimate. Kepler is a thoroughly absorbing and sympathetic anti-hero, trying to minimize harm while striving for survival.”

NPR

Touch is fast, smart, cinematic and with a cracking central idea. This is absolutely destined to be one of the biggest thrillers of 2015... A very, very impressive second outing.Rick O'Shea, radio presenter, on TouchTouch is a story within a story within a story and it's one of the cleverest, most compelling books I've read in a long time. The intoxicating voice, ingenious premise and intricate plot will have readers clamouring for a copy. Touch has bestseller written all over it and Claire North is one hell of a writer.C. L. Taylor, author of The Accident on TouchSeriously I cannot get over how amazingly good Claire North is. I could have read this book forever. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was so smart, Touch is beyond genius. This will be one of THE books of 2015. Mark my words. Bite the Book (Australia) on Touch
