The topic and setting are interesting, but there are far too many inconsistencies for me to like this book.
If a ship left earth for a multi-year voyage to Mars, I am sure that everyone would know everyone on board by name, by sight and by having talked to everyone else before leaving earth. But the security officer didn't know someone well into the flight.
Why would a ship going to Mars carry hand grenades and a shotgun?
There was far too little concern for hull integrity.
