A young scientist discovers a zero-gravity homicide onboard a space station
Rusty McPhee was born on Earth, but he hasn’t been on solid ground for so long that he hardly remembers what it’s like. He was raised on the space station known as ICE-3, and he knows the ins and outs of this floating research platform better than anybody. He’s working in the waste disposal unit, watching garbage dissolve and be recycled, when he sees something terrifying: a dead body, half decomposed, face down in the muck.
Before he can tell anyone what he’s found, the machines finish processing the body, and he’s left without any evidence that a murder ever happened. Not one of ICE-3’s twenty-five thousand inhabitants is missing—so where did the body come from? As he tracks the zero-G killer, danger lurks around every airlock, and it will take just one misstep for Rusty to fall from the sky.
This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Bruce Coville including rare images from the author’s collection.
