Amateur detective Mallory Viridian’s talent for solving murders ruined her life on Earth and drove her to live on an alien space station, but her problems still follow her in this witty, self-aware novel that puts a speculative spin on murder mysteries, from the Hugo-nominated author of Six Wakes.

From idyllic small towns to claustrophobic urban landscapes, Mallory Viridian is constantly embroiled in murder cases that only she has the insight to solve. But outside of a classic mystery novel, being surrounded by death doesn’t make you a charming amateur detective, it makes you a suspect and a social pariah. So when Mallory gets the opportunity to take refuge on a sentient space station, she thinks she has the solution. Surely the murders will stop if her only company is alien beings.

"Your princess is here, and she's fucking metal!"

This book was kind of a mess. I love sci-fi, and the premise of a murder mystery aboard a literal space station had me all sorts of curious and cautiously excited.

After Playing for Keeps and Six Wakes, this is my third book by Mur, and I loved it just as much. The symbiotic aliens, the human characters, the setting and the murder mystery all hit a variety of my buttons. Did I read that this is going to be a series? Then I will definitely read the next books, as well as any others she's written that I can get my hands on over here.

This was first contact meets reluctant girl detective and was highly entertaining.
Only 4 stars because I do feel the ending got away from the author a little but that would be my only quibble with this book. I don't really have much more to say about it apart from that I do recommend and I did enjoy.
