Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part III: Life's a Beach


Banger Leader: Colonel Pranger had a price on his head for decades. It got so high the brass took a hard-line policy on dealing with assassins.
Banger Leader: Any attempt on Pranger's life would be answered in kind on the assassin, his family, his friends. . . We made it public, and it was a great deterrent until you came along. It's nothing personal.
Kevyn: We never collected a millicred for killing your Colonel, and our Captain died on that mission. I think we're even.
Banger Grunt: You never collected? I'll show you how to, if you'll let me go.
Banger Leader: Mujac! Shut up!
Kevyn: Okay, now we're getting somewhere.
