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.
