Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part I: High Olympus Command


Kevyn: Lieutenant Ventura, I need every scrap of your notes and schematics for "King" Lota.
Para Ventura: Sure. But why?
Kevyn: It's one of the oldest rules of good strategy. . . "Know thy enemy."
Para Ventura: Yeah, yeah. I've heard that one. But isn't Lota signing the checks for your mission?
Kevyn: Fact one: My enemy has money. Now I need to dig deeper.
Para Ventura: You're being paranoid, sir.
Kevyn: Maybe, but bitter experience has taught me a thing or two about the politicians who sign mercenaries' paychecks.
