Library Journal Review

When detective Ralph Dietrich's arrival aboard his new home-a five-mile space station orbiting Earth-is disrupted by the murder of a homeless woman, he's thrust into a partnership with hot-tempered veteran detective Klem Ristovych. It isn't long before more murders occur, and all the clues lead to a potential political nightmare for the station's leadership. And while this is all confidently and competently told, it never really adds up to much or lives up to the potential of the sf premise. Dietrich and Ristovych are well-drawn characters but in part because they're types: Dietrich is the by-the-book do-gooder and Ristovych, the wise-cracking hardhead whose years of experience have left her committed but cold. The unique setting is largely wasted in favor of tracking a relatively bland mystery, and while the history and unusual politics of the station are increasingly explored as the story unfolds, it ends up feeling like too little too late. Verdict While hard-core crime fans and sf fiends will be drawn to the premise, it's unlikely that many of them will stick around to see what the volume ending "to be continued" portends.-Thomas L.
