A very dark book about a future world where clones are bred as “spares” and kept on farms for the event that the original has an accident and needs a transplant. A former cop decides to free the spares on his farm and teach them to speak, to read and write, in order to allow them to lead a somewhat normal life.

When one of his spares is supposed to be operated on, he flees from the farm and takes the spares with him. Lots of violence ensue, a clash with his old enemies, death, destruction and carnage, and a happy end after most of the characters are dead.

The first half of the book was a pretty long read; it gets better after that.
