Slow Lightning - Jack McDevitt

This is a SETI novel, but on an expanded scale. There is a mystery as well, in finding out what exactly happened to a mission that went out looking, and failed, so none have been sent since.

Also, humanity is doing some serious advertising of their presence. They blow up stars so people might notice where they are.

When people that survived the failed mission start dying, one violently, you realise something is being hidden.
