To Marjorie Stirling


. . . Suicide, Adrian thought. My brother can't possibly cut his way into Vanbert—riots, chaos, street fighting—and get out with her.

probability of success 35%, ±7, Center said.

Raj's mental voice cut in: If you're going to stage a raid into a major city, riot and insurrection make it a lot easier.
