Conan Doyle was a genius of his time and the stories so perfectly narrated by Stephen Fry are an absolute joy.

The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

One of those books you intend listening to on your way to work, but find yourself sitting in your car in the parking lot unable to leave as the story unfolds.
Well paced and a good mix of characterisation and sci-fi.
