Story So Far: Bone Wires by Michael Shean, Part One – Part Six

In the wasteland of commercial culture that is future America, police are operated not by government but by private companies. In Seattle, that role is filled by Civil Protection, and Daniel Gray is a detective in Homicide Solutions. What used to be considered an important – even glamorous – department for public police is very different for the corporate species, and Gray finds himself stuck in a dead end job.

That is, until the Spine Thief arrives.

Bone Wires by Michael Shean is a free serialized Dark Sci-Fi novel that is being published every Thursday on Curiosity Quills, which will be reviewed on Full Moon Bites as the  ‘Story So Far’ with a full review once the whole novel is done.

In this serialized story, we meet our main character Daniel Gray who works as a cop for Civil Protection. More specifically he is with Homicide Solutions. Lately in Homicide things have gone down or as Gray put it—come to a dead end, no pun intended as most of the people who got killed were “Blanks” people that have no police coverage. **pause** I thought this was, weird but thinking about it; I have to admit that in the future, it might not surprise me if you had to have ‘police coverage’. Sounds like something the government would do in my opinion. The other half of people that mostly got killed was “everyday citizens” who are covered under the standard civilian safety contract. Which as I understand id somehow between the city government and the “Company”.

So to my understanding the Company is Civil Protection, and then we have ‘the government’. Does this mean police do not technically work for the government or ‘the people’, but instead the Civil Protection? Interesting plot ideas the author has taken.

But anyways, basically Homicide has just become a clean up crew. Gray though wished for something to come along to help him distinguish himself in his field and unless I misinterpreted, put Homicide ‘back in the light’ as well. But mostly he strives to get a good, difficult case, and earn an Amber Shield.

Gray also has a partner, senior partner, and I have to admit though I do not have much to go on, I do not really like nor trust Carter; I could not tell you why but as a character in this story, my warning alarms are going off that he may not be all that he seems.

In the first part we get our first murder-- Ronald Anderson, an off duty CivPro personnel. Spin missing somehow, with no blood obvious. The case Gray has been waiting for, but at the same time, now that he has his case, he wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

With this murder and one that quickly follows on its heels that looks to be connected Gray can not help a little bit of excitement, especially when his partner says that it is officially his case.

I have to admit that even now, I am quite confused on who the ‘Pacification’ is, unless I am just missing something very obvious? Either way I have went back and forth with a couple ideas I got from reading but each gets discounted when I get the next idea—so, no clue what that is and I hope I find out soon.

I’m intrigued to say the least and look forward to more.
