‘The Apollo Murders’ by Chris Hadfield

‘Interesting Scenario, Authentic Details’

Score: 5/5

I don’t know what I expected from this. Maybe some idealised picture of space travel with simplified explanations? Maybe the last word in locked-room mysteries, with the locked room being in orbit?

Whatever my low expectations, they were thoroughly exceeded by this novel. It’s a techno-thriller more akin to Clancy than a murder mystery, and it dwells enough on the technical details to describe it well but not enough that it dulls the plot. (Or I may just have a high threshold for these technical details.)

And the technical descriptions are maybe a bit more reliable than other authors, since this author actually is an astronaut.

Much more fun than I expected.
