The Burning Dark
"All is not well aboard the U-Star Coast City. The station's reclusive Commandant is nowhere to be seen, leaving Captain Abraham Idaho Cleveland to deal with a hostile crew on his own. Persistent malfunctions plague the station's systems while interference from a toxic purple star makes even ordinary communications problematic. Alien shadows and whispers seem to haunt the lonely corridors and airlocks, fraying the nerves of everyone aboard. Isolated and friendless, Cleveland reaches out to the universe via an old-fashioned space radio, only to tune in to a strange, enigmatic signal: a woman's voice that seems to echo across a thousand light-years of space. But is the transmission just a random bit of static from the past--or a warning of an undying menace beyond mortal comprehension?" --

The description of this novel is promising, but the main character's voice is so annoying that I gave up reading after 30 pages. I absolutely couldn't stand hearing him "speak." He comes across like a really bad parody of a sports radio announcer, only with Tourettes Syndrome. It's very hard to take the author seriously with such a phony seeming character and lazy writing.
