"In the year 2204, humanity is expanding into the wider galaxy in leaps and bounds. Cutting-edge technology of linked jump gates has rendered most forms of transportation--including starships--virtually obsolete. Every place on Earth, every distant planet humankind has settled, is now merely a step away from any other. All seems wonderful--until a crashed alien spaceship of unknown origin is found on a newly located world eighty-nine light-years from Earth, carrying a cargo as strange as it is horrifying"--Back cover.

Peter Hamilton is the best SF writer in the world, just ahead of Cixin Liu. ALL of his space opera series are fabulous, and this one didn't disappoint. It is a complex first novel in a trilogy that takes the entire book to understand, a process of detective discovery that incorporates 3 timelines and an alien-as-human mystery with unknown motives. The second book in the series (Salvation Lost) is now out (late 2019).

Outstanding SF book, hard SF.
I don't know if I'd rate it as high as "The Three-Body Problem" by Lui Cixin...I'd need to see how it ends but this first book was GREAT!
Highly recommended.
