#SciFiMonth Waiting on Wednesday 11/11/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Dead Space by Kali Wallace (March 2nd, 2021 by Berkley Books)

Science fiction and thrillers are an irresistible combination, and I also enjoyed Kali Wallace’s Salvation Day last year, so I’m really looking forward to this one.

“An investigator must solve a brutal murder on a claustrophobic asteroid mine in this tense science fiction thriller from the author of Salvation Day.

Hester Marley used to have a plan for her life. But when a catastrophic attack left her injured, indebted, and stranded far from home, she was forced to take a dead-end security job with a powerful mining company in the asteroid belt. Now she spends her days investigating petty crimes to help her employer maximize its profits. She’s surprised to hear from an old friend and fellow victim of the terrorist attack that ruined her life–and that surprise quickly turns to suspicion when he claims to have discovered something shocking about their shared history and the tragedy that neither of them can leave behind.

Before Hester can learn more, her friend is violently murdered at a remote asteroid mine. Hester joins the investigation to find the truth, both about her friend’s death and the information he believed he had uncovered. But catching a killer is only the beginning of Hester’s worries, and she soon realizes that everything she learns about her friend, his fellow miners, and the outpost they call home brings her closer to revealing secrets that very powerful and very dangerous people would rather keep hidden in the depths of space.”

  1. This is intriguing! The words “claustrophobic asteroid mine” made me immediately think of the movie “Outland” with the late Sean Connery, and the description of this story seems to carry the same adrenaline-infused vibes… 🙂

  2. I don’t know why I’ve drifted so far from sci-fi over the years, but there are still titles that grab me, and I love the sound of ” claustrophobic asteroid mine”. 🙂
