My sci-fi fan husband found Pushing Ice that has some similar plot points:

Subject: [PW] Science Fiction Novel ID

I'm trying to track down a novel, from an advert/promo excerpt published in another novel - along the lines of; "If you liked this book, read on for an exciting excerpt from another author."

Plot details I can recall include a group of space miners shepherding a chunk of ice (?) back to Earth orbit from somewhere, who reluctantly answer a distress beacon to find a non-responsive drifting spaceship, apparently uninhabited.  Story point of view then shifts to a person hiding from a horrific threat, I believe the implication was that the person was/had been on the drifting ship.

Source book was read recently (within the last year), but I can't find it, probably gave it away.  It may have been published by Angry Robot, but I haven't found a plot summary on their website that matches the book excerpt I read.

Any leads would be most appreciated!
