A few years back I read a book which I'd like to look up again:

  • It starts in a ship.
  • It's on a tether from a space station (I think).
  • Its job is to scavenge (and clean) debris from earth orbit.
  • It's a one man operation.
  • He snags something unusual, apparently not of earthly origin which sets up the opening premise.

Any ideas on what book that might be?

  • You stopped reading just when the man snagged something unearthly? So you have no idea what kind of thing it was, or what happened afterward? – user14111 Sep 14 '17 at 4:21

    How many years back is "a few"? Less than 10? More than 20? – user14111 Sep 14 '17 at 4:22
  • Less than ten, I believe, although the book itself could be a bit older. I'd guess less than 10-15 to be safe. – user212553 Sep 14 '17 at 11:52
  • I did read it but, at the moment, I can't recall the rest of the book. It was a great opening and I'd like to re-read it which is why I'm asking. – user212553 Sep 14 '17 at 11:56
