Publisher's Summary

Fleet sector bases close as the Fleet moves on. Everyone knows and expects it. But still, the announcement that Sector Base E-2 will close - although still 30 years in the future - breeds a mood of tension and anxiety.
So when Rajivk Agwu finds two pairs of shoes on a trail near Fiskett Falls but no sign of their occupants, his already heightened senses warn of danger.
Those on the base fare no better. Bristol Iannazzi, working on the notoriously delicate anacapa drive for a runabout, also notices something strange, something out of place, something dangerous.
Expanding the rich history of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's captivating Diving Universe, The Falls provides an exciting and crucial backstory for future events.


What the Critics Say

"Kristine Kathryn Rusch is best known for her Retrieval Artist series, so maybe you've missed her Diving Universe series. If so, it's high time to remedy that oversight." (Don Sakers, Analog)

Great murder mystery with a lousy ending

This was a good story, up until the ending/resolution. There it fell apart for me. The ending is like the old adage ' kissing your sister', or maybe HUH, what the...that's it? The dialog at the very end also mad me think the Ad Counsel had written it. To bad. The mystery got interesting but the ending just killed it.

Not the adventure I was expecting

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, this issue of the diving universe drags through anti-tech baggage of even minor characters for most of the plot. Breakdowns, poorly trained crew members and bad management decisions don't make a good adventure story for me.
Earlier stories had a sense of unbridled adventure, archaeology and characters optimisticically driven to understand discovered tech.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Have characters with a positive drive and depth of tech interest
