Very disappointing, far too short, a thin story line and far to expensive. I have previously enjoyed all of Mr Steele's book, but this was too short and too expensive for what it was

HASH(0x8c2856e4) out of 5 stars Death on Europa 30 July 2013
By Arthur W Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Angel of Europa (2011) is a SF novelette. It is set on Europa -- a moon of Jupiter -- in the early days of exploration within the Jovian system.

In this novel, Otto Danzig is a spacesuit tech and arbiter on the Zeus Explorer. His primary role is to arbitrate conflict on the ship.

Diaz is the Captain of the Zeus Explorer. She commands the ship and crew, but conflict resolution is the jurisdiction of the arbiter.

Evangeline Chatelain is the bathyscaphe pilot on the Zeus Explorer. She flies the deep sea vehicles used to probe the deep water under the Europan ice.

In this story, Otto has inspecting a spacesuit with the airlock when the outer door opened. He tried to old on to the suit locker while the air rushed out the portal. He was greatly damaged before he died.

Six months later, he awoke within the ship infirmary. The ship doctor had injected medical nanos within his bloodstream and stuck him into the emergency hibernation tank while he healed. Now she has revived him at the orders of the Captain.

Diaz tells him that there is a problem involving Evangeline. She doesn't tell him what the problem is, but allows Evangeline to tell him her side of the story first. Evangeline says that the bathyscaphe was attacked by a large creature within the Europan ocean and she had to dump the observation dome when it sprung a leak. Two men died.

Evangeline was known to have had affairs with both men. Most of the twelve women in the expedition thought she was guilty of murder. Some of the eight men believed her story.

This tale takes Otto to Europa to explore its ocean He and Evangeline are lowered into the waters in another deep sea vessel. They see several lifeforms in the cold waters.

Otto is very attracted to the beautiful woman. Is she a murderer or an innocent victim of jealousy and prejudice?

This novelette is only ninety pages long. The price of this limited edition is rather high. The story may not be worth the cost for everybody, but I enjoyed the tale.

Highly recommended for Steel fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of the Jovian moons, unexplored oceans, and interpersonal relationships. Read and enjoy!

HASH(0x8c285738) out of 5 stars Return of an Old Friend 25 Sept. 2012
By Fred Kiesche - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Otto Danzig is checking over a spaceship when his ship, Zeus Explorer (see this for what that is based on) is out around the orbit of Mars, en route to Jupiter when the airlock door opens and he is almost sucked out. He wakes up to find that months have passed, the ship is now in Jupiter space. Why was he wakened from hibernation? Well, not to see how he almost got sucked into the big black beyond, but because two members on a diving expedition into Europa's ice-capped global ocean died. Danzig is the ship's arbiter, somebody outside the chain of command that acts to ease difficulties within the crew. The ship's captain has taken him out of medical hibernation to investigate what actually happened in the deeps of Europa.

This is a relatively short work for Steele, a novella rather than a novel (but it is between covers, so I'm counting it as part of the 2012 Year in Books!). I could easily see the events in the story being placed into a larger tale of humanity's first crewed visit to Jupiter and his moons and what they discover there. I'm not sure if this is part of Steele's Rude Astronauts tales (it feels like it could be, and the ship that Steele uses as the basis for the Zeus Explorer was the basis for at least one other ship in the short stories of the series, see Sex and Violence in Outer Space which also features sketches by Steele); it stands well on its own or as part of the series.

While there is no real surprise to the mystery, that might be fixed if this was embedded into a larger tale. A good short work from Steele and a nice break from the Coyote series that he has been working on. Now...how about eBooks of the installments of Rude Astronauts that haven't made the transition (including this one)?
HASH(0x8d0eb4ec) out of 5 stars Entertaining from start to finish 9 Dec. 2014
By DickStanley. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good story and the price was right for the length. Just enough science to keep it interesting and enough sex to keep it exciting. Way too many typos and missing words, however, but easy enough to puzzle what they should be from the context. I'm going to try more of these.

Classic Allen Steele. Some hard science fiction wrapped in some well done character development. A near future crime story with an interesting twist or two. Very enjoyable read.

A fun fast read, thoughtful anticipation of the science involved in the exploration of europa in the future. The editing is poor with many word omissions.
