Book seven in what I think will be the final of the Retrieval Artist series, Duplicate Effort focuses on Talia, Miles' daughter, and her five cloned sisters. Talia, also a clone, has decided to look for her missing sisters without her father's knowledge, and was caught trying to get off-planet in order to do so. As a Retrieval Artist, Miles Flint has had to learn to view situations from multiple aspects, something he has yet to teach his young daughter – but this situation seems to be providing the perfect, if unfortunate, example. Having brought Talia back to his office, Miles tries to find out how Talia began her search. Yet, she is evasive so he has to lead her through the less pleasant aspects of his position – and present to her how her inquisitive nature may have resulted in the deaths of innocents. From official release/information:
