Mystery set in space. Not really as sci-fi as I was expecting but that's okay. It dragged a bit in the middle and there was that gimmick where they knew someone was trying to kill them but they'd still board the ship with the suspiciously acting AI anyway. There were so many characters/suspects to keep track of and many of them had aliases. I wish the author had included a cast of characters with this one. The story and details he added to fill out the mystery were interesting. I'd read another book by this author, esp. one including the team of Alex Benedict and Chase Kolpath (who it took me way too long to figure out was a woman.)
I'm still wondering why the author used the color white so frequently in this book. I thought it must be a clue of some sort. It's mentioned so frequently both in names and in articles of clothing. If it was a clue it's meaning passed me by...
