Space Station Down

Tor. Aug. 2020. 352p. ISBN 9781250307439. $26.99.
Astronaut Kimberly Hasid-Robinson has been on the International Space Station long enough not to get too excited about new arrivals, even when one is an astronaut returning to the station for a second tour and the other a “tourist” paid to be there. Keeping one eye on the viewer showing the new crew members on board, Kimberly concentrates on running her experiment in her module. But a fairly routine process is thrown into disarray when the unsuspecting newcomers murder the astronaut greeters and everyone else on board except Kimberly. Trapped with the killers, she has no idea what they want or how to survive. To save the space station, she will have to use every ounce of ingenuity, courage, and creativity she possesses.
VERDICT “Grand Tour” series author Bova and Kill Zone coauthor (with Kevin J. Anderson) Beason join forces on a tense, claustrophobic, space-bound thriller that while thin on characterization, particularly in regards to the villains, is just plausible enough to keep readers on edge and compulsively turning the pages.
