Dead Space - by Kali Wallace
Hard science fiction. Story involves some kind of shenanigans on a mining station on an asteroid. The heroine of the story is Hester Marley a brilliant scientist who has been sidelined to a dead end security job after receiving catastrophic injuries on previous scientific expedition to Titan. She hears from a friend and fellow survivor of the expedition who says that there are things he has discovered that she needs to know. Before she can have further contact her friend is killed on a mining station on an asteroid. She is able to get assigned to the investigation and that's where the excitement begins. Who among the small crew had the means and motive to murder her friend? Slightly claustrophobic an sometimes repetitive in the dangers she must face, still a good read for those wanting hard science fiction.
