Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part II


KAMBOU: Where is the crew? Where is Shiplord Srabben?

ELF: We detained them on suspicion of piracy, and secured them aboard the Maxim 39.

KAMBOU: You're not the law here. You don't have the right to detain people when you suspect them of wrongdoing.

ELF: Except in the event of piracy, which our lawyer said applies in this

KAMBOU: *talking over* Wait... Is Maxim 39 the ship that exploded?

ELF: Oh, yeah. Sorry.

Prisoner transfer is gonna require tweezers and imagination.
