Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part III: Conflagration


NARRATOR: Aboard the limo...

MURTAUGH: You know, this is the first time I've seen someone disobey a flag officer's order, ask for a court martial, and then come back to work the next day as if nothing happened.

SORLIE: General Bala-Amin and I have arrived at an understanding.

Tangent Andreyasn called her last night and invited her to listen in on this morning's...  Ugh, hang on.

SORLIE: Battleplate in my head.

SORLIE: Remember Officer Libretti, the one who glued me to a billboard?


SORLIE: She's leaving for your villa right now.

General Bala-Amin wants my eyes and ears back there ASAP.

MURTAUGH: We can't miss this meeting.

SORLIE: You can't.

SORLIE: I have orders to leap from a moving limousine.

MURTAUGH: I suppose I should be happy to see that you're back to obeying orders.

SORLIE: This isn't immoral.  Merely illegal, and fun.
