The Icarus Hunt book. What Timothy Zahn has created is basically a gumshoe novel based in space. His characterization is wonderful, and the plot is more than satisfying.
From Timothy Zahn, Hugo Award winner and New York Times bestselling author of two landmark Star Wars® series. The Icarus Hunt is a stand alone science fiction novel by Timothy Zahn. It has elements of interstellar intrigue, murder mystery, quick thinking, and strategic posturing. This, like pretty much every other book I have read by Zahn is a real page turner with enough elements to keep you guessing to the very end. I would recommend this book to any one interested in any of the categories of books listed above. For those more interested in philosophical questions and moral delemmas I would point them to Timothy Zahn's other stand alone book Soulminder.

Their only chance is to stay one step ahead of their pursuers as they try to make it home. A bold and epic novel filled with unrelenting action and a good dose of humor, The Icarus Hunt is a wild hyperspace romp through the galaxy.
I figure that the eighty-two hours it'll take to get there should belongenough for us to create a new identity for the Icarus that'll be good enoughto pass muster. I'm sure we can put something together," he rumbled, eyeing me speculatively. Did your tangle with the Lumpy Brothers bother you that much?"
