Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part I


CDRE TAGON: I retired with a head full of secrets, so the private sector was, by law, closed to me.

I served to make my world safer. This was an easy price to pay.

Then criminals with an official, top-secret teraport window abducted me from my home.

BALA-AMIN: I've seen the report.

CDRE TAGON: So you know the torturer cut off my head.

BALA-AMIN: That was in the report.

CDRE TAGON: He remote-grafted it to a headless monkey.

BALA-AMIN: That is new information.
