Corey, James S. A.
This epic space opera will appeal to anyone who enjoys political intrigue and strong world-building in their science fiction. In the 23rd century, the colonists who scratch out a hard-scrabble living on the moons surrounding Jupiter are tired of being mistreated by political factions on Earth and Mars. The destruction of a cargo ship and the disappearance of a well-connected young woman may be just enough to set off a war between the worlds, one that could doom all humanity. This is the first book in The Expanse series, but it is also satisfying as a standalone read.
