From official release/information:
This is the third novel that follows Alex Benedict, dealer in interstellar antiquities and his assistant Chase Kolpath. This time the two are on the path of a long missing colony, having been brought to the mystery through a series of coincidental encounters. Benedict, considered by some to be nothing more than a grave robber, routinely manages to find long lost interstellar spaceships in order to recover artifacts which he then sells. This time it's not just a ship but an entire colony that broke away from Earth thousands of years ago and was never heard from again.
