Book 12: Force Multiplication — Part III: Fight or Flight


MURTAUGH: Major Alexia Murtaugh has just made two leaps.

NARRATOR: Her literal leap gave her a clear line of fire on a suborned tarbot while drawing potential return fire up and away from the arrestees.

MURTAUGH: GAH!  His shields are already up.

NARRATOR: Her intuitive leap is that the suborned 'bot "Tarfeather" is now a bomb to be used for destroying evidence and witnesses.

MURTAUGH: Fire breachers on Tarfeather!  But kill him gently!

NARRATOR: Both leaps came too late to do any good.
