    The crime of the century begins without a hitch. On July 5th, 2070, as it's about to be launched, the starship Alabama is hijacked - by her captain and crew. In defiance of the repressive government of The United Republic of Earth, they replace her handpicked passengers with political dissidents and their families. These become Earth's first pioneers in the exploration of space...

    "Compelling"
    Overall

    I am half way through this book and have not noticed any deficiencies by the narrator. The plot is compelling and suspenseful. I like the human element of the characters which is usually a short-coming in most SF.
