The Kassa Gambit is a fast paced mystery set in the far future where Earth is largely a distant memory and mankind has populated the galaxy by way of "nodes" that function like womholes. In all this time and throughout all the settled worlds, nary a hint of alien life has been glimpsed. Kassa is one such world where the population has been decimated by destruction from space. The two main characters stumble, independently, onto the aftermath and each begins investigating what is suggested as possible alien aggression. Both protagonists have backstories with secrets and each suspects everyone, including each other. Eventually, they must work together to save themselves and the rest of mankind from this menace.
The science is largely physics oriented with wormholes and interplanetary space travel figuring prominently. Biologically, people are pretty much the same (they're even still dying from cancer). The pacing is excellent with necessary infodumps skillfully inserted without bogging down.
The narration is quite good with an excellent range of voices, a good pace for delivery, and an overall mood that is perfect for the story.
