“A creepy mystery embedded in a classic sci-fi setting that'll make you shiver...” Tobias S. Buckell,?New York Times bestselling author of Halo: The Cole Protocol Captain Abraham Idaho Cleveland has one last mission before early retirement: decommissioning the U-Star Coast City, a semi-deserted research outpost orbiting a toxic star on the edge of Fleetspace. Arriving to find the station Commandant missing, Fleet communications plagued with interference, and a hostile skeleton crew haunted by insidious shadows and disembodied whispers, Ida becomes increasingly isolated and paranoid. He reaches out to the universe via an old-fashioned space radio, only to tune into a disturbing signal: a woman's voice that seems to echo across a thousand light-years of space. Is the transmission just a random burst of static from the past—or a warning of an undying menace that threatens to devour humanity's future? “Christopher puts sci-fi in a metaphysical chokehold— the burning dark makes reality tap out.”-Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious “A riveting sci-fi mystery reminiscent of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House.”-Martha Wells, author of Star Wars: Empire And Rebellion—Razor's Edge “Smart, intricate, and viscerally gripping... Adam Christopher carves a place for himself among the stars of his genre.” V.E. Schwab, author of Vicious “With this creepy and compelling mystery, Adam Christopher demonstrates why he's one of the most original and exciting writers working in the genre right now.”-Gareth L. Powell, author of Ack-Ack Macaque and The Recollection
