An original novel set in the Halo Universe and based on the New York Times bestselling video game series!
It is 2553, and the three-decade long Covenant War that defined a generation has suddenly drawn to a close. Yet, in the remotest parts of human space, tensions remain that threaten to overflow into another full-scale conflict. Beneath the surface of the planet Gao lies a vast cavern system renowned for its therapeutic effects and rumored miraculous cures. But now Gao natives are turning up brutally murdered down there—violent acts that happen to coincide with the recent arrival of a UNSC research battalion protected by Spartan Blue Team, led by the renowned Spartan-II Fred-104.
Maverick detective Veta Lopis of the Gao Ministry of Protection is only trying to do her job as the Special Inspector assigned to catch a serial killer—one who is possibly hiding within the Spartan ranks—but she never anticipates the situation spiraling out of control into an all-out crisis. When Gao is revealed to harbor ancient Forerunner technology that could solidify the UNSC’s military supremacy for centuries to come, Insurrection loyalists within the planetary government will do anything—even align with a vicious faction of what remains of the Covenant—to ensure that never happens…

The book was great
I liked how the book explained things and had a good plot twist as well as action.
Well written and conforms to canon
Unlike some media in the halo universe, this story holds to the tone and feel of the other stories well regarded in the franchise such as the fall of reach, but with a detective story throw in. It respects previous canon and doesn't retcon thing like in the kilo-5 trilogy.
A very good read and a worthy addition to the halo universe
Not worth the money
