Book 14: Broken Wind — Part I: Breath and Business


PETEY: The tiny intelligence agency you used to work for is the least of your worries.

A large portion of the U.N.S. military has you on record as part of Tagon's roster.

If they catch up with you, they'll interrogate you, and your connection with their Internal Affairs Intelligence will be revealed.

PARA: And after the Morokweng incident, that could trigger a civil war in Sol System.

PETEY: Almost certainly.  Not that it would trouble you much, since you wouldn't live to see it.

PARA: I do have conscience enough to feel guilty for that in advance.

PETEY: It wouldn't trouble you much, I said.
