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. 

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

Absolutely loved this book. Characters are well written and evolve throughout the timeline. Packed with action and mystery, and, very clever and interesting understanding of space mechanics, this book had me hooked and at the edge of my seat. One of the greatest stories I’ve read. Highly recommend!

Great book! The story is very interesting and the narrator is great. Someone need to tell the author Marines are NOT soldiers, Army are soldiers, Marines are Marines!

An incredible space opera. I wish more sci fi was this well written and deeply impactful. Each character was fleshed out perfectly. This book will live long in my memory. 5/5

This just wasn’t my cup of tea. I just wasn’t interested. Didn’t like the way the story line was going. I’m not saying it’s a bad nook. Several people recommended it. Spoke very highly about it.

After watching the first five dried of the series I decided I had to read the books. This is first book in the "Expanse" series. It is fascinating. James Corey weaves a story that is so believable. We had a 20 hour trip and never wanted to turn the book off. The narrator did an amazing job giving each character easily recognized. Highly recommend.

Wonderful book. I’ve watched the tv series up to season 5 so knew what to expect but cherished the differences and greater depth of the book. As with nearly every review, I agree the science is spot on. Has made me research into some of the science and astronomy which itself has been a fun and revealing exercise. The narration is great too. Honestly, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this book. I’m a scientist (specialist doctor) so really appreciate when authors get the science right; kudos to the two authors and their own research - wish there were more like you out there. Already got stuck into book 2!
