APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Claire North—author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August—revisits the idea of reincarnation in this dark and original thriller. Told in short, suspenseful chapters, Touch is the story of Kepler, a human soul who hops from body to body through skin contact. When the vulnerable Eastern European prostitute whom Kepler’s been using as a vessel is murdered, the race to figure out the assassin’s motivations begins. Writing with elegant wit, North reveals the high costs of her protagonist’s transient state, surprising us at every turn.
