I wanted to like this book. I'll try the next one in the series. The concept is clever and the possibilities enormous. BUT. The writing needs tightening and editing, better character development,a stronger story arc and something I can only call heart. It kept almost catching fire, then fwizzle.Narration was decent, not enough to save it though.

50,000 people on a generation ship. The ship left Earth 300 years earlier and they are getting ready to colonize Tau Ceti. Benson was a Zero Hero sport star who retired. He is given a job as a constable. Pretty easy job, since there is almost no crime. The original 50,000 who left Earth were tested and screened. Those with aggressive tendencies in their family were rejected. All of a sudden a man goes missing. How does a man go missing on a space ship?
This book is good, but not great. I liked the main character and his girlfriend, she is pretty feisty. I like how the Science is cool, without being overly complicated. Several times I chuckled. The book is more mystery/detective than Sci-Fi. Even though a man is killed and attempts are made on Benson's life, I never felt any suspense or any intensity. I need more before I give out that 5th star.
