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


MASSEY: Thurl said you wanted to talk about the legal angle there on Mars?

'CHELLE: Yes, and let's be quick about it. I need to report to our employer in less than an hour!

MASSEY: Short version: if the police investigated private bank accounts without solid evidence and a court order, they broke the law.

'CHELLE: Trenchcoat Monobrow only told us about the money thing. If he has other evidence, he didn't let on. 

MASSEY: Then he is lying to you, or he violated Article 21-80c of the Martian Infocratial Finance Act of 2884.

MASSEY: Also, I doubt "Trenchcoat Monobrow" is his real name.

'CHELLE: I don't know, you should see this guy.
