Murder in the first hotel in space? Yep. Murder in the first hotel in space it is.

Few people can say that they got rich inventing an electric toilet bowl brush. In fact, Arley Ferminster is pretty much the only one. Still busy inventing other creative and useful devices, and hosting a gadget show on GeekTV, Arley makes time to be in the first group of guests at the first commercial space hotel, bringing his assistant, Martin Grading, along. When one of the other guests is murdered, Arley and Martin, who are avid mystery fans, take it upon themselves to investigate.

The look into life on the space station, which has been converted to a commercial hotel, was interesting, and I wonder if that's really what it would be like visit the space station as a tourist. In fact, this look into life on the space station may have been more interesting than the characters. Maybe. Maybe not. Arley and Martin are a couple of interesting characters.

I really enjoyed this story, until the end. The end was abrupt, and left me questioning what really happened. It was almost as if the author thought, "Oh, it's time to end the story so here, this will do" and so what if the ending didn't really follow the rest of the story all that well. Was the ending a surprise? Yes, it was.
