An exciting murder mystery wrapped in a space trucker story with a lot of Star Wars flavor. Highlights include aliens who resemble the Venetian Medicis, reasonable interstellar politics, and a spaceship that starts out pretty familiar and ends up completely unique.

There are a couple of unexpected twists in this story, as is typical for a murder mystery, but what I appreciated about them the most is that they're very well foreshadowed. I could tell there was something up with some of the details of the story so getting the twists revealed was very satisfying. ( )

Zahn, Timothy. The Icarus Hunt. Bantam, 1999.
I do not have the Star Wars habit, so I have missed much of Timothy Zahn’s work. Fortunately, that is not all he writes, and I was happy to catch up with The Icarus Hunt. It is a classic detective fiction space opera combo—albeit with a lot of Star Wars tropes. I doubt it is an accident that the protagonist shares a lot in common with Han Solo, including a hot starship, a smuggling gig, and an alien buddy. We have some inventive aliens that would be right at home in the Star Wars canteen and an heiress who probably looks a lot like Princess Leia. Despite all the Star Wars echoes, the labyrinthian plot is engagingly noir, with a fun McGuffin. I should note that one reviewer was put off by anachronistic wired technology and I admit that I was thrown back into the twentieth century when a “phone” buzzes in someone’s pocket. At least some starship pilots have implants. Three and a half stars rounded up to four just cuz I like detectives in space. ( )

A bit of a slow start at the beginning and muddles along for awhile before a surprising and interesting ending. ( )

Good, but not great! Jordan McKell and his partner Ixil are offered a cargo on the ship Icarus, to take the ship to earth. His crew is selected for him by the client. After some trouble they take off. Shortly afterward, a "mishap" kills one crewman and injures another. McKell figures it is murder, but doesn't know which crew is the murderer. Meanwhile, the Paath make it clear that they want the Icarus and will stop at nothing to get it. Hilarity ensues. Eventually, McKell maneuvers his enemies into a trap allowing him to capture a spiral-wide wanted criminal simultaneously evading the Paath.
