The Falls: A Diving Universe Novel, Hardcover/Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Brand: Wmg Publishing, Inc.

Fleet sector bases close as the Fleet moves on. Everyone knows and expects it. But still, the announcement that Sector Base E-2 will close--although still thirty years in the future--breeds a mood of tension and anxiety. So, when Rajivk Agwu finds two pairs of shoes on a trail near Fiskett Falls, but no sign of their occupants, his already heightened senses warn of danger. Those on the base fare no better. Bristol Iannazzi, working on the notoriously delicate anacapa drive for a runabout, also notices something strange, something out of place, something dangerous... Expanding the rich history of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's captivating Diving universe, The Falls provides an exciting and crucial backstory for future events. Praise for The Falls: "...this novel is a prequel--but a thoroughly enjoyable one (and with a little bit of a tie-back to the series' present day). Rusch is a prolific award-winning author in several genres, including the mystery field, and here she has accomplished a skillful blend of science fiction and murder mystery which kept ratcheting up the stakes and had me avidly reading right through to the end." --Worlds Without End "Kristine Kathryn Rusch is best known for her Retrieval Artist series, so maybe you've missed her Diving Universe series. If so, it's high time to remedy that oversight." --Don Sakers, Analog
