Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


CAPTAIN TAGON: Is that our new Mall security uniform you're wearing?

SHODAN: Tailor tells me it's inspired by historical fashion at MEL-One, except with passive fullerene weave, reinforced joints and a piezoplated ten-ring.

SHODAN: Bulletproof and slash-proof.  Small arms do almost nothing to it, and it'll turn a knife.

SHODAN: It'll also turn a fork, but you have to take it on the sleeve rather than in the eye.

CAPTAIN TAGON: I bet I can live that down after I've turned it to my advantage.
