Gold in the Sky by Alan E. Nourse

The rock in space was not quite a sphere, being far too tiny a bit of cosmic debris to have sufficient gravity to round off its ragged corners. One side was rough -- like a ragged mountain top that was broken off at the peak and hurled into space by an all-powerful hand.
Slowly the Scout Ship edged closer, braking with forward jets. Was this it, at last -- the missing asteroid?

A space adventure set on Mars and the asteroid belt. It's a novella rather than novel length but well paced. The imagery and concepts seem fairly dated, though. Inertia is still a problem, but they apparently have artificial gravity. The predominant weapon is the adjustable strength stunner, though projectile weapons are still around. Leigh Brackett's The Big Jump is from roughly the same period, but I liked it better. For a story dealing with the asteroid belt possibly being a formerly inhabited planet, I much prefer Inherit the Stars by James Hogan. The Project Gutenberg eBook was formatted well with no obvious errors.
