The Outback Stars by Sandra McDonald

Good space opera, following a couple of crew on a large starship who get involved in sinister dealings. The characters are good, and the mystery is fairly compelling.

An interesting detail is that interstellar colonization is dominated by Australians and New Zealanders. It's implied that this might be due to climate change rendering much of the northern hemisphere almost uninhabitable, but never really explained.
