Overall, I didn't like it.  I feel like there was a general problem with character motivation.  Holden's moralism came off as fake/stupid and Miller's 'final case' seems to little to late to make sense of him as a character.  I was disappointed by the lack of machination from the Colonel.  I like the alien component until the end when it just gets boring and predictable.  I was hoping for a lot more from this book/series, but I will not be reading book 2.  Anyone else?  The more I read of Daniel Abraham, the less I like him.

I actually really liked this book. I always thought Holden was a proper muppet and Miller to be cool.

The things I enjoyed were the Noir Detective elements and I also liked that thrust and G forces were dealt with (also great to see an intermediate tech human race - solar scale but nothing beyond).

Alas MG it seems we are prone to disagreement!
