Review: Sundiver (The Uplift Saga #1)

User Review  - Conal - Goodreads

2014 re-read. The first book of the uplift trilogy and somewhat different in style from the novels that followed. This is mostly a murder mystery in space and was enjoyable for what it was. You should read this one to see how much the story progressed as it went along... Read full review
