Ecological rules have changed. Where once corporations would rape the lands in their quests to find products to monopolize and sell to the Earth and other planets, now the laws protect the planets.
Gone are many of the machines used for work and travel. Now minds thinking about moving a ship to an I did not know what to expect from Foundation: Credence, Book 1, by Marco Guarda. Now minds thinking about moving a ship to another planet can move it from Earth to where it needs to go. In all of this, a murder is committed. The murder victim, Aarmo Jarva , is the man responsible for the development of this more peaceful way of life. He was a visionary who saw beyond what most men thought.
But he was dangerous to the laws of the land, to Credence, and he had to be stopped.

When I started reading Credence I was not sure I was going to like it. The prose is beautiful. Words flow from the pen of Marco Guarda painting a wonderful picture.
What is Kobo Super Points?
The murder and the hunt for the murderer is absorbing. I hated putting the book down had to--had to get back to work. I loved Christian Trumaine. He is a complex man. His life is not turning out the way he envisioned. His wife works off-planet in Aquaria, where there are very strict laws on the environment and citizenship.
He cannot be with her full time because he is not a citizen of Aquaria.

Tragedy has occurred to leave him little more than a shell--full of guilt, going through the motions of living, estranged from most people. His captain, Grant Firrell, along with the TSA and the Feds have given him hope that maybe he can become a citizen of Aquaria, if he finds the murderer. If he fails, he is the scapegoat. With very few clues to the murder, I figured he would remain on Earth.
Some of the other characters I was unsure if they were friend or foe. Who was working with whom? Who would stop at nothing to cover up the murder? To cover up what Dr. Jarva was researching? Why was it important?
Noah Benedict, the head of Credence, and his assistant were helpful to Trumaine. Noah explained things to him and helped him to find the murderer at the beginning. Credence was not looking good at that point.
The TSA and the Feds were threatening him with shutting down Credence if the murderer, who looked to be a part of Credence, was not found. Faith, a believer in Credence, also showed Trumaine things he did not know and, sometimes, did not want to remember or know. Where I found problems was in the world building of Credence. Guarda needed to build the Credence world. He sometimes got wordy in trying to make the reader understand this world.
I was confused when I was pulled out of the murder investigation for world building. Some of the passages contained too much information that did not have context with the story at the point of explaining the world of Credence.

When the story went back to the murder plotline, I enjoyed the story much better. I also began to understand the world of Credence when Mr.
Guarda naturally allowed the world building to be shown through the story. Overall, I liked Foundation: Credence, Book 1. I am hooked and need another fix of this world.
Foundation (Credence, #1)
I hope it comes soon. This seems to be a series that will be interesting and unique. May 23, Randy rated it it was amazing. Foundation has an old-fashioned feel for me, from the milkman delivering in the neighborhood to the computer punch cards to the polite profanity and related areas darn and the reference to the young woman who "dated" for money. New as well, we have cell phones, electric cars, DNA analysis. It was all refreshing and I loved every bit of it.

Two bodies were there, a married couple, an obvious murder. Except that security systems said the main door hadn't been accessed in ninety-six hours and the deaths were placed at about a day before. It had been discovered by the neighborhood milkman who found the previous day's delivery still sitting by the door where he'd left it. How could it have been done? Trumaine figured it could only have been Credence. The Credence Corporation was responsible for moving spaceships from one point in the universe to another.
It didn't matter the distance. A group of true believers floating on couches in a huge chamber was the impetus. They called it flushing. The two bodies were Aarmo R. Jarva and his wife, he a famous scientist, the father of modern space travel, the developer of Credence. The medical examiner found another strange occurrence when he filed the death certificates. It was on record that the wife had died five years ago. Obviously a clerical error.
Credence surely bore investigation. Trumaine was offered his fondest wish to figure it all out in three days. His wife worked there and had citizenship. A very restricted world, Trumaine was a "mere" policeman and offered nothing constructive to rate. The accidental death of their daughter, for which he blamed himself completely, had forced them apart. If he could ever get over the self-blame, she wanted him back. So he went at it with a will. At about the same time as the Jarvas had been murdered, a , ton ship, loaded with people and billions of dollars of terraforming equipment had disappeared enroute to its destination.
Were they connected? A wonderfully fun SF novel with promises of more to come. Detective Chris Trumaine is called in to solve the unexplainable murder of a renowned, award winning scientist, Aarmo Jarva and his wife. Jarva was instrumental in developing the science of the believers at the Credence Foundation. Basically, if you have enough who believe, it will become reality.
Whether it is moving spaceships from planet to planet or an individual from one place to another, Credence was big business. And, if Trumaine can solve the case, he will be granted citizenship to Aquaria, a pristine planet where his wife now resides and works. Trumaine enters the world of the believers and meets Benedict, who runs Credence. Once Trumaine is in, things start to happen very quickly. However, because of the elusive nature of the murderer—a Believer and a telepath—the investigation proves more difficult than ever, and Trumaine faces disaster.
When, desperate to catch the murderer, Trumaine agrees to enter the Feed—the very same medium the Believers unconsciously inhabit when building the mass belief—a third contender enters the arena, that messes up with painful events from his past.
