I am participating in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine. This gives me a chance to show the books I’m looking forward to in the next few months.
Check out Breaking the Spine for more information.

Genre: Science Fiction Mystery
Publication date: November 1
Synopsis: Govcorp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos’s entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away; what made his father lose hope; what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door. And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas’s departure, it’s got something to do why Casales was found dead in his hotel room—and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation.
To figure out who killed one of the most powerful men on Earth, Carlos is supposed to put aside his personal history. But the deeper he delves into the case, the more he realizes that escaping the past is not so easy. There’s more to Casales’s death than meets the eye, and something much more sinister to the legacy of Atlas than anyone realizes…
The reasons this book appeals to me:
- I like books which combine fantasy or science fiction with a mystery.
- The book sounds intriguing! I didn’t read the first book, but it sounds like this book is just set in the same world Ms. Newman created.
- I really like the cover! It has the same concept as Planetfall.
