La novela en que se basa la primera temporada de la serie de TV de Syfy The Expanse. Bienvenidos al futuro... La humanidad ha colonizado el Sistema Solar: Marte, la Luna, el cinturón de asteroides y más allá, pero las estrellas aún están fuera de nuestro alcance. Jim Holden es segundo de a bordo de un transportador de hielo que realiza misiones entre los anillos de Saturno y las estaciones mineras del Cinturón. Cuando su tripulación y él se topan con la Scopuli, una nave abandonada, descubren un secreto que desearían no haber encontrado. Un secreto por el que alguien sería capaz de matar, matar a una escala que Jim y su tripulación no imaginan. La guerra en el Sistema Solar está a punto de comenzar, a menos que sean capaces de descubrir quién abandonó la nave y por qué. El inspector Miller busca a una chica. Una chica entre mil millones, pero los padres de ella son gente adinerada, y el dinero lo es todo. Cuando las pistas lo llevan a la Scopuli y a Holden, un simpatizante de los rebeldes, se da cuenta de que aquella chica quizá sea la clave de todo. Holden y Miller deben atar los cabos entre el gobierno de la Tierra, los revolucionarios de los planetas exteriores y corporaciones secretas, y lo tienen todo en su contra. Pero en el Cinturón hay otras reglas, y una pequeña nave puede cambiar el destino del universo. Reseñas: «Hacía tiempo que no leía una space opera tan buena.» George R. R.

Una aventura a seguir.» Washington Post «Lo más parecido a una película taquillera de Hollywood enforma de libro.» io9.com «Un gran debut en la space opera, en la tradición de Peter F. Hamilton.» Charles Stross

Decades ago, Japan won the Second World War. Americans worship their infallible Emperor, and nobody believes that Japan’s conduct in the war was anything but exemplary. Nobody, that is, except the George Washingtons – a shadowy group of rebels fighting for freedom. Their latest subversive tactic is to distribute an illegal video game that asks players to imagine what the world might be like if the United States had won the war instead. Captain Beniko Ishimura’s job is to censor video games, and he’s tasked with getting to the bottom of this disturbing new development. But Ishimura’s hiding something… He’s slowly been discovering that the case of the George Washingtons is more complicated than it seems, and the subversive videogame’s origins are even more controversial and dangerous than the censors originally suspected. Part detective story, part brutal alternate history, United States of Japan is a stunning successor to Philip K Dick’s The Man in the High Castle.
