Publisher Description

From a New York Times bestselling and Hugo award-winning author comes a modern masterwork of science fiction, introducing a captain, his crew, and a detective as they unravel a horrifying solar system wide conspiracy that begins with a single missing girl. Now a Prime Original series. 

Humanity has colonized the solar system—Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond—but the stars are still out of our reach.

Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, the Scopuli, they find themselves in possession of a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for—and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.

Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to the Scopuli and rebel sympathizer Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.

Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations—and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe.

"Interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written." —George R. R. Martin

Wow I loved this

I could not put it down. This is the best sci fi I have read in a long time. I cannot wait to read the next one.

Splendid

I’m sad it took me so long to discover this series. I can’t wait for what’s to come in book two and beyond. My thanks to the author. Awesome!

Hmmmm. Can you penalize a sci-fi novel for being too easy?

This novel is enjoyable, but in the end there lacks any real challenge. The pacing, plot, characters, mysteries, etc are well done. Even expertly crafted at times. But nothing about this story seems to really stretch beyond sci-fi archives. Nothing jumps out as unique.

So, while it’s a good book, and well written, I think it fails to shake things up enough. It leaves you with a “been there, read that” feeling.
