Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part VI: Long Arm of the Law


Narrator: A good two hours later. . .
Detective Fitzsimmons: . . .Between the short-selling, the plants in the HTRN Building, and the extensive paper trail captured in the office of Richard Skinner, the picture should now be clear to the court:

Tagon and his Toughs conspired with HTRN's CEO to destroy the network and profit therefrom.

Detective Fitzsimmons: The prosecution rests.
Captain Tagon: Can we plead "That's not how we did it?"
Massey: Maybe you could ask for a recess while the defense runs around in a panic.
