"Cryoburn (Vorkosigan Saga)" by Lois McMaster Bujold
https://www.amazon.com/Cryoburn-Vorkosigan-Saga-McMaster-Bujold/dp/1451637500/
Book number seventeen (in chronological order) of an eighteen book space
opera series.  However, some people call this a military science fiction
series.  There are several other books and short stories in the
Vorkosigan Universe.  This series won the Hugo and Nebula awards for
best series in 2017.  Also, several of the individual books in the
series have either won awards or been nominated for awards.  This book
was nominated for the 2011 Locus awards for best novel.  This is my
second reading of this book.  I reread the well printed and well bound
new MMPB published by Baen in 2011 that I just rebought on Amazon (the
second printing !).  I have rebought the rest of the books in the series
in MMPB.
Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan on the planet Kibou-daini,
investigating the plant wide industry of freezing people for diseases,
accidents, or just plain getting old.  The cryogenics industry is trying
to spread into the Barrayar Empire, specifically the planet Komarr.  But
as usual, all is not what it seems.
BTW, at the end of the novel is a sad note of 100 words.  Do not miss it.

And it will hurt to get up tomorrow also.

BTW, I am reading a book by John Lambshead right now. I suspect that
you are Canadian though. He is English, a Londoner apparently.

And some people call it an SF spy thriller series.

The end of the novel is the last 3 words in chapter 20. What follows are
five 100 word drabbles, but they aren't really part of the novel, IMHO.

The series is all things to all people, starting with the space opera
genre for me. There is definitely the series inclination towards the
romance category also.

I have been re-reading this entire series every year or two. Your posts
are reminding me that I'm due another re-read. So thank you for that!

After the novel proper are five "Aftermaths", which according to LMB,
are 100 words each. Are you referring to one of them? If so, which?
From my point of view, the sad bit is the last three words of the
novel itself.
Which were foreshadowed in an earlier novel (Brothers in Arms?).

IIRC, at the beginning of _Diplomatic Immunity_ (because the liner he
was on was intercepted by an official Barrayar courier), Miles was
worried that he would be addressed as Count Vorkosigan.

All of them. I did not realize that each of the aftermaths was 100 words.
