It is an excellent novel and I really like the murder mystery, but it is missing a page.
I've got book three all queued up....

i just ordered books 3 and 4 :-)
The books chart the journey of a very junior Officer and his life on board one of the US (Space) Navy's ships. The title does not give the whole story as the books do deal with the day to day life of Ensign Paul Sinclair and his colleagues - his duties as an Officer in the Combat section of the ship, and his secondary duty as the ship's Legal Officer. Author Jack Campbell (writing as John G Hemry) uses his experience is the American (wet) Navy to bring a depth to the life of his characters.
A very good read.
I can also recommend the "Lost Fleet" series and the "Stark's War" series by the same author.
Here, newly promoted Lieutenant Sinclair gets involved in the investigation to a death on board his ship and once again risks his career to see justice done. Very much the same formula as the first book in the series and hits the spot about as well as that one did. Not much space action or big twists but the same elements of `doing the right thing' by the Navy and your men and standing up to be counted. Very easy and readable but there is the danger that the author is following the formula too much, I will be getting the third, but I hope he has mixed it up a bit.
