The story is set in a future when humanity has colognized most of the Solar System. Planet Earth is ruled by the United Nations sharing control of the planetary system together with Martian Congressional Republic. They act like competing superpowers, controlling the area in an uneasy military alliance to exert control over the people living int the Asteroid Belt.
People from that zone, lnown as “Belters” are thin and elongated as a result of the effects of low gravity and they are the providers of all natural resources to the system, but the rest of the Solar System keep them apart. And there is also the danger of an attack of a group of dissidents known as the Outer Planet Alliance.
With all this setting, the story begins with the finding of an abandon ship and the attack suffered by those who found it, surviving only five of the whole crew. They will be involved in the missing of a young girl and the reluctant ship’s captain of the remaining crew together with a washed-out detective in Center will embark in the most intriguing story about human condition, power, and the lack of trust among mankind.

The representation of each character was well done, defining each of them properly. His reading is precise with no overdoing on any aspect of the material.

The audiobook is presented in a simple way, just the straight reading of an amazing science fiction story.
