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.
"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
Not the adventure I was expecting
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.
Have characters with a positive drive and depth of tech interest
