Everyone wants the clone created. The scientist, to advance her theories. The Russian gangster, for supposedly he is the one being cloned. The Russian gangster’s sons, for they know the real reason. The scientist’s husband, for he wants her to be happy.
But what is she cloning, really? They gave her the cells, the lab, an assistant, a host, and money enough to not ask questions. What are they hiding? From the depths of South Africa to the cold of Russia, the clone will pull you in every direction. And when you think you have it figured out, something takes a turn.
Protect yourself, for this story may even be true. The Clone, by Johan Thompson. Only ask questions for which you want answers.

5 Star Reviews on Goodreads
“Wow. Just…. Wow. what an insane book! Holy bananas!! Okay, I don’t even know where to begin because so much happens and I don’t want to give anything away… “The Clone” by author Johan Thompson is far and away one of the most original and just flat-out interesting and crazy and surreal thriller/suspense/sci-fi fiction novels I’ve ever read (and I read a lot!). I liked it for so many different reasons…”
“I was hooked from the first pages of the intriguing prologue of “The Clone” and much to my surprise my interest never faded for a moment! (that’s rare for me with books these days…) I loved the creative and strong characters and plots that continued to build with tension and shock and surprise. Just when you think you know what’s happening, something comes along to throw a wrench in it. This is good because I hate books that are super predictable. And this one isn’t…. faaaar from it. Literally there are more twists and turns and reveals and unexpected surprises in this book than any I can recall in recent memory.”
“The Clone” by Johan Thompson is by far one of the more different, disturbing, and downright scandalously addicting books I’ve read in long time! I was completely drawn in from the get-go in the different characters’ worlds and watched as they slowly became entwined and deeper in the dark drama as more elements and character motivations were revealed – some which are seriously jaw-dropping. Obviously we know that Egor isn’t ‘good’ (what gangster really is?) and that manipulation human nature with ‘cloning’ can bring about some disastrous results. But I thought it was cool how even though the cloning is an integral part of the story, it didn’t overshadow the whole plot, which is very character-driven by some extremely disturbed and flawed people…”
“The Clone” really struck me as unique due to the depth and complexity of the characters and the fact that even for a science-fiction/thriller the rules seemed to go out the window a few times and really threw me for a loop (no spoilers). The writing is very strong (so surprised to read this is the author’s first novel!) and the plot is compelling and intelligent enough to really keep our interest – which is honestly saying a lot considering I got bored reading most books these days. This one just flows so much smoother and faster and keeps picking up steam as it goes along. This is a rare novel that I thought had almost everything, from romantic/marital issues (w Johan & Olivia), to scientific/supernatural elements, danger, intellect, life and death struggles, shocking twists, emotional moments… it’s hard not to find something you like.”
