Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part V: Command and Conquer


THUG CAPTAIN: Ms. Damico, the squad we sent after your other prisoner has been ambushed.

The cameras don't show anything though.  They're hacking us, Ma'am.

DAMICO: "Hacked."  Past tense.  Clever Drop-bear tried to distract me with a bribe, but the firebreak caught up with him and cleaned him out.  The cameras are ours again.

THUG CAPTAIN: Maybe, but we still have no sign of your prisoner or those who sprung him.

DAMICO: They can't hide forever.  Don't worry... they'll turn up.
