Threads – Book One of the Fabric of the Universe
It's the year 2576 and humanity has moved out into the galaxy, establishing the MetroStellar in a new age of manifest destiny.
A chance encounter plants an evil seed, and a psychotic killer begins stalking the female population of the MetroStellar. It's up to the USS Marshal Service to find him before he kills again.
In another part of the galaxy, a lone Marshal, on a routine undercover mission, stumbles into a 300-year-old cover-up.
Both cases begin and end with the Intra Stellar Transportation and Exploration Company (ISTEC), and the planet they control, Exodus.
Solving each case, and coming out alive, will require the combined skills of two USS Marshals. They're twins who will have to use their special bond to overcome the forces working against them and seek justice for those they've sworn to protect. They're stronger together, but first, each will find the greatness in themselves. When they do, the Fabric of the Universe will never be the same.
"Threads" spans the colonized galaxy and the next 500 years of human history. The author uses unique technologies, intertwined story lines and political intrigue to move the reader to its exciting conclusion.
