The losers in question are the small crew of an aging asteroid survey ship, sent into the Belt on a multi-year trip to categorize objects. They stumble across a derelict freighter, and the unusual cargo sparks a solar system-wide race and chase as various powers that be strive to secure it. Can the crew prevail, or will they be collateral damage, ants stepped on as elephants dance. Certainly it's a journey of regaining self-respect for one of them, as his personal demons emerge from the black to threaten him and his nascent friends.
As I say, apart from the strange, stilted, formal language of the QI's, the characters are well drawn, there are moments of drama, and the outcome of any situation not guaranteed. People die, war is looming, and a long term conspiracy underpins everything occurring. It's set near-future in our timeline, so most of the tech is familiar or a reasonable extrapolation, making it accessible and easy to relate to. The system-wide politics are explored but not in gritty detail, so that does not bog down the action. And the cast is constrained, so it's kept tight and claustrophobic. Indeed, we don't even meet most of the bad guys, they're just voices over the radio, or embodied as a chasing space ship, often with weapons.
I haven't checked for a sequel, but if there is one, I'll be buying it.
