Acclaimed author Emma Newman returns to the captivating universe she created in Planetfall with a stunning new science fiction mystery.
 
Govcorp detective Carlos Moreno was only a baby when Atlas left Earth to seek truth among the stars. But in that moment, the course of Carlos’s entire life changed. Atlas is what took his mother away; what made his father lose hope; what led Alejandro Casales, leader of the religious cult known as the Circle, to his door.

And now, on the eve of the fortieth anniversary of Atlas’s departure, it’s got something to do why Casales was found dead in his hotel room—and why Carlos is the man in charge of the investigation…

"Those expecting an encore to the critically-acclaimed Plantefall will be both delighted and disappointed; this is a very different story, as you should expect. However, Newman’s beautiful writing style and powerful use of structure is every bit as present here as it is in the first novel. After Atlas works entirely fine as a standalone; the thrills are still as strong regardless of your experience with the author’s previous work." - Starburst Magazine

“An inventive blend of crime and science fiction”

In this magnificent follow up to Planetfall, Detective Carlos Moreno, a child left behind by the Atlas spaceship, finds himself confronted by a past he’d rather forget as he is assigned to investigate the death of a... More

“The Hi-Tech Future of Policing (and a great deal more besides).”

‘After Atlas’ is a stand-alone story, but it follows on from ‘Planetfall’. I was fortunately able to read them consecutively, which helped me appreciate the linkages between them.

Whereas ‘Planetfall’ is about the... More
