In The Stone Thread: Second Chronicle, a post-apocalyptic tale by J.R. Evangelisti, what remains of humanity live protected under a bubble. Their needs are met as long as they follow a set of Catch-22-like rules and they're reminded constantly that they are lucky to be sheltered in the bubble's suffocating confines. But everything isn't as it seems as law enforcement officer Cryton, a first class detective, along with the help of Marsha, a sexy lady in a red silk dress, begin to investigate a spree of strange murders and disappearances. They find that things go much deeper than they ever would have expected.
A fast-paced and sometimes startling novel, The Stone Thread by J.R. Evangelisti reads like a gritty noir in a futuristic setting and I can easily imagine it as a video game. It also alternates between 3000 AD and some time during the 1800s, with scenes from a whaler that for a long time actually doesn't seem like it's a part of the story, but eventually does tie into the big reveal later on.
The Stone Thread is filled with gruff, battle-hardened men and sexy dames dressed in silk, while its aerial battles and long descriptions of sci-fi weaponry assure us that it is firmly ensconced in future realms. J.R. Evangelisti's novel had an interesting premise, one I’ve never encountered in sci-fi before. It keeps you reading to find out what happens next all the way to its fiery end. An end that promises destruction and hope in the same breath.
