Cosmonaut Keep by Ken MacLeod

Description: Near-future political intrigue spirals around space opera on a truly epic scale in Cosmonaut Keep, the sensational new novel from the most exciting science fiction writer to have emerged in recent years.

After the Ural Caspian Oil War, the Russians quit stalling. Their troops reached the Atlantic, their cosmonauts reached the asteroids, and now they are claiming first contact. Matt Cairns knows they are being economical with the truth. But even he doesn't know what's really out there.

Thousands of light-years from Earth, human colonists have learned to live among other intelligent species. For Gregor and his fellow students of marine biology, the arrival of an interstellar merchant ship sets their research on a new course - where an alien past encounters a human future, at the speed of light.

Cosmonaut Keep is the first book in a new sequence that will become a landmark in science fiction.
