BIOS by Robert Charles Wilson

This is a short and unhappy book. You could consider the last chapter a happy ending, but since it takes place 150 years later than the rest of the book, it should be an epilogue.

Humans are trying to settle Isis, a planet that is totally poisonous to them. This is complicated by bureaucratic and governmental conspiracies plus personal betrayals. People you like die. All die, but not much embarrassment.
