I’m a sucker for space opera, and this book marks the beginning of a story the scope of which hasn’t been seen since the days of Herbert, Asimov, or more recently Robinson. Set in the near(ish) future, humankind has spread throughout the solar system. Earth and Mars vie for control of the vast mineral resources of the Belt, and tensions are rising. When a crew of ice haulers happens upon a mysterious abandoned ship, a secret is revealed that could throw the whole system into interplanetary war. Filled with political intrigue, space battles, and a tech-noir style murder mystery, this book is a must-read for sci-fi fans!

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.
