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


'CHELLE: Thurl, we need some help. We've been here a week, and we haven't found anything.

'CHELLE: We looked for drug trafficking, slave trade, smuggling...anything suspicious.

'CHELLE: The police say the circus is moving ten times the money it should be, but we're not seeing any trace of that.

THURL: Ten times? Ten? Lieutenant, that's a huge amount of money. They'd have to be smuggling something equally huge.

THURL: Or something incredibly tiny. You know, like electrons.

'CHELLE: Fine. I'll put on some wool socks and start shuffling around behind concessions.
