Bookworming: Leviathan Wakes

Leviathan Wakes, James S. A. Corey, ***
Mix a little bit of hard sci-fi with some police procedural, and toss in some body horror and you get a fairly unique book. Interesting world building and nice pacing round out a good read. The characters were rather shallow and the tone a touch muddled by the genre mixing, but there is quite a bit going on here. And of course it is the first of a series. An easy recommendation for sci-fi fans, especially those like myself who are itching for some space opera goodness.
