PROSE & AUDIO
With the Terminal Tempest raging through the city, and many people waiting on Knight Inc. to lead the charge in quelling it, the Commander and Mac are forced to take time away from the crisis to investigate strange kidnappers who had failed to interfere with Knight Inc. on their last assignment.
“Are you sure there’s time for this boss?” Mac asked Commander Geoffrey Knight, who shared the empty freight elevator with him. Large in stature and presence Commander Knight stood six feet six inches tall and was as wide as a linebacker. “I mean this storm is nothing to shake a stick at. I heard some of the tech boys up stairs calling it the Terminal Tempest for Pete’s sake. Besides, we reunited Spiegel and his daughter all ready. What’s there left to do here? I’m not seeing a reason for Knight Inc. continued involvement.”
“There’s plenty left to do Mac. The Spiegel’s and their research had been granted safe passage from Germany by Knight Inc. We owe them an explanation as to the breakdown of their security. Also, I’d hate to go on yet another assignment without knowing for sure that there isn’t a leak inside the organization. Who knows how long we’ll spend quelling this crazy weather and it’s mysterious after effects. The storm will continue to ravage the Serpent city and the Spiegel’s kidnaper’s trail will have gone cold during the chaos. We’ll have nothing to go on and nowhere to look for the breakdown once it’s all over.”
“If the breakdown exists at all.” Mac offered.
