There are also some great characters and two events that turn out to be connected.
I enjoyed the story and wondered if it would have any tie in to the previous books in the series since this happened many years in the future, not in the time the rest of the story takes place. Listen and look careful for near the end there is something that ties the book to events in the past. Rush says in her comments she started this story to flesh out the Fleet and how it operated but she realized that she had written an entire novel to get all the information in she wanted so decided to publish it for those of us who love the series. I think it would also work as a stand-alone or an introduction to the series.
There is a new book in the series coming out in 2016.
I couldn't get into the characters, I couldn't get into the situation, nor the mystery behind what happened at the Falls, a great watrefall on a planetary base slated to close in 50 years. Presumably there is some sort of connection, and maybe had I persevered, I would have grokked in fullness at the end, but frankly I just couldn't keep reading. There are too many other books out there to waste time on a less than so-so one.
It's a shame because I really love and admire the work of Kristine Rusch.
This Diving Universe novel is in most ways a tangent from the rest of the series so far, taking place on a planet with a Fleet sector base. (When? To the extent I think I know the answer, I ain't tellin'.) It provides an intriguing look at the life in and around such a base, about which many readers of the series may have become curious. However, the novel is primarily a police procedural, and will be most enjoyable to readers who appreciate such stories.
There are quite a few characters, and I sometimes found it a bit difficult to keep them straight, but I could usually get reoriented quickly enough.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It had a good mystery, well developed characters, and new information. Only problem is that I read it too quickly!
