Daniel Gray finds himself stuck in a dead end job as a CivPro homicide detective, until the Spine Thief spawns the case of a lifetime. Bone Wires is a dark, brooding cyberpunk noir, serialized every Thursday.

Carter was right about the feds.  With Muller found in pieces in front of his former haunt, a pair of FBI agents came down to Central from their office over at the C. E. P. to see what Gray had been up to.  It wasn’t meant as a slight when they sat him down in an interview room and quizzed him over his movements that week - after all, it was perfectly understandable that Gray might be considered an early suspect.  He was the man on the case, he was the one who’d shot the murderer under Muller’s tutelage.  Of course they were going to wonder if he didn’t just want to clear out the rest of the mess.

A week after their initial interview, however, Gray hadn’t heard anything else - but that might be because of the press more than any lack of suspicion.  With Muller found dead, the spotlight was turned on him once again.  This time, though, he really didn’t have much to say.  He wasn’t involved, after all, and he wasn’t being accused of the crime.  This thing had all the hallmarks of a Duwamish hit, and he figured that’s why he wasn’t hearing from the feds after that.  It certainly didn’t make him feel angry about losing another potential collar, even though he may well have been responsible for it in the first place.  So when Maya Frail grilled him on NewsNetNow about it, he didn’t feel like could give any answer but the truth.
