Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

On the Asteroid Belt colony of Ceres Detective Joe Miller is assigned a case that his superiors (and those higher up the pecking order) would prefer be handled quietly, and with as much delicacy as possible. Detective Miller is to find the missing daughter of a corporate magnate and send her home, whether she wants to go or not.

Meanwhile, the ice hauler Canterbury responds to a distress call from a stranded freighter and is destroyed by ships of unknown design and origin.

Behind Detective Miller’s increasingly complex case and the survivors of the Canterbury‘s desperate search for answers (both of which seem to lead to more questions than answers) lurks the growing political tensions between the United Nations of Earth, the Martian Congressional Republic, and the far-flung outposts of humanity represented by the Outer Planets Alliance. Tensions will flare into conflicts, conflicts will escalate into war, and the Solar System as we know it will be changed forever.
