Some truths are better left undiscovered ... Govcorp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos's entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away, what made his father lose hope, what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door. And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas's departure, it's got something to do with why Casales was found dead in his hotel room--and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation. To figure out who killed one of the most powerful men on Earth, Carlos is supposed to put aside his personal history. But the deeper he delves into the case, the more he realizes that escaping the past isn't so easy. There is more to Casales's death than meets the eye, and something much more sinister to the legacy of Atlas than anyone realizes.

Like her first book, Planetfall, the core of the story is very well developed, a bit slow moving with lots of flashbacks and process, but engaging none-the-less. However the ending, while inevitable, feels rushed. All the clues slam together at once. I suspect Ms. Newman intended it to be overwhelming and awe-inspiring, but it felt a bit contrived and I just metaphorically shrugged my shoulders and moved on. Clearly there'll be at least one more in this series, and I will read it, but not with quite the anticipation a good series should generate.
