A murder mystery set on a generation ship months from reaching Humanity's new home.

Humankind has escaped a dying Earth and set out to find a new home among the stars aboard an immense generation spaceship, affectionately named the Ark. Bryan Benson is the Ark's greatest living sports hero, enjoying retirement working as a detective in Avalon, his home module. The hours are good, the work is easy, and the perks can't be beat.

But when a crew member goes missing, Benson is thrust into the centre of an ever-expanding web of deception, secrets, and violence that overturns everything he knows about living on the Ark and threatens everyone aboard. As the last remnants of humanity hurtle towards their salvation, Benson finds himself in a desperate race to unravel the conspiracy before a madman turns mankind's home into its tomb.

This is a really good start to a new series. Great characters and the suspense is nicely done. The obvious culprit is not necessarily the right one. Nor is the obvious motive the right one either. I really enjoyed this first novel by Patrick Tomlinson and am looking forward to the next in the series.

The thought that I have is that it's kind of like CSI: Generation Ark. It's very well-done and neither genre is sacrificed. It also doesn't take itself too seriously which I appreciated (there is one scene where I actually laughed out loud). I look forward to reading the second book in the series.
