Book 9: The Body Politic — Part II: Royal Flush


Captain Tagon: With the body secured, I'm wondering. . . Umm. . . Do you still need us for funeral security?
Assassin Flamb: Well, let's see. We paid you half down for showing up, and added a nice bonus for your timely medical help. I know you're anxious to leave, but we haven't yet paid you the balance on the original contract.
Captain Tagon: So. . . We're not finished until you've finished paying.
Assassin Flamb: And that won't happen until after the funeral.
Captain Tagon: I've got a shovel and a black suit right here.
