Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part II: Barsoom Circus Command


Trenchcoat Monobrow: I've got idents and cover stories for each of you. I assume you all have circus acts to flesh this out a bit?
'Chelle: Chisulo and Elizabeth are brawlers. Schlock's a freak. I'm their manager.
Trenchcoat Monobrow: A manager? Are mercenary officers allowed to be useless? Because in the circus there are no free rides. You have to be able to contribute.
'Chelle: Oh. . . Um. I'm a pretty good shot and I can do a back-flip.
Trenchcoat Monobrow: If you can do those at the same time while wearing a bikini, that's a start.
