Assassin's Orbit
Author(s): John Appel

Golden Girls meets The Expanse with a side of Babylon Five

Murder makes unlikely allies.

On the eve of the planet Ileri's historic vote to join the Commonwealth, the assassination of a government minister threatens to shatter everything. Private investigator Noo Okereke and spy Meiko Ogawa join forces with police chief Toiwa to investigate and discover clues that point disturbingly toward a threat humanity thought they had escaped.

"The writing is good; the ideas excellent." -- John Dodd, author of Just Add Water

Underwood, author of Annihilation Aria
"A fast-paced debut novel filled with interesting, well-developed characters and super cool sci-fi technology." -- Michael Mammay, author of the Planetside series
"Assassin’s Orbit is the best kind of space thriller—twisty and explosive, it doesn’t stop, doesn’t flinch, and doesn’t hold back. I absolutely loved this book and the super-capable women at its explosive heart." -- Karen Osborne, author of Architects of Memory
"A compelling, explosive debut." -- Locus Magazine
"Combines a space station murder mystery with mature characters, with action beats, intrigue, diverse characters and an engaging plot and writing style."
