Shadow Captain, Alastair Reynolds. Sequel to Revenger - Youngish Adult Sci-fi

The Ness sisters are at it again, sailing around what is left of the solar system. (It's a bit murky, but it seems that the original eight planets were somehow destroyed, and life now exists on thousands of artificial worlds at varying distances from the sun.) They and their crew spend some time on a decaying space station, deal with mysterious aliens, and search for a hidden treasure. It's like Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly.

Quite enjoyable space opera, recommended. (But read the first one first.)
