Acclaimed author Emma Newman returns to the captivating universe she created in Planetfall with a stunning science fiction mystery where one man’s murder is much more than it seems…

Gov-corp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos’s entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away; what made his father lose hope; what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door. And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas‘s departure, it’s got something to do why Casales was found dead in his hotel room-and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation.

To figure out who killed one of the most powerful men on Earth, Carlos is supposed to put aside his personal history. But the deeper he delves into the case, the more he realizes that escaping the past is not so easy. There’s more to Casales’s death than meets the eye, and something much more sinister to the legacy of Atlas than anyone realizes…

Reviews

Expect to see this book on various award shortlists in 2017. It's that good.
STARBURST
Newman writes with exquisite precision of grief, divided loyalties, and the struggle for self-actualization in this noir-inflected standalone...Gripping and sorrowful.
Publishers Weekly
A detective novel on acid...Newman's psychological insight is astute.
The Washington Post
Without doubt one of the best SF books I've read this year.
POPULAR SCIENCE
Another wonderfully gripping book from Emma Newman, one that advances her Planetfall setting to a new and compelling level and demonstrates her genius at character development.
