The kidnapped women seem to forget very quickly about the plot they’ve uncovered by the government, and when they find a (bad) way off-planet no one feels the need to get the info back to Earth.

Especially considering a ton of kidnapped women were killed in the crash.
Second book built a better emotional connection between the characters with their traumatic histories; first book had a weird “left behind husband in name only” who supposedly held her back for all of five seconds.
