Future of the franchise

Looking for recommendations of good, hard sci-if that takes place within our colonized solar system. I read The Expanse series and it was fantastic. Looking for stuff like this.

Looking for a serial killer detective mystery/thriller. I can't name any reference books other than The Outsider and Mr Mercedes by Stephen King, and I'd prefer non supernatural. I'd love something like the korean detective movies Memoir of a Murderer, Memories Of Murder, etc

Keigo Higashino's Professor Galileo series is good, although I don't remember there being serial killers. For something more King-like, dark-rear end murder mysteries are a Scandinavian cottage industry; check out Jo Nesbo and Henning Mankell.

Goon favorites Blindsight and Echopraxia by Peter Watts.

Pushing Ice, Aurora, and 2312 might do it for you. I have lots more to recommend if not!

Please to be restful, it is only a puffin that has from the puffin place outbroken.

Does anyone have recommendations on Marcus Aurelius? Either the best translation of his Meditations, or a good biography of him. Or really any other philosopher-king, since I'm more fascinated by the idea of a philosopher leading a nation to war than Aurelius in particular.

This doesn't seem to fit the 'within the solar system' requirement.
