"Can't argue with that."

"Now, certainly, as a freelance courier, you could easily obtain information by simply opening the packages you deliver, but there is simply no reason for VC to ever entrust you or any other freelancer with sensitive data, as they run the largest and fastest distribution network in the galaxy, by a large margin."

"That they do. So where does that leave us?"

"Their story is highly suspect, wouldn't you agree?"

"Pff, yeah!"

"Yet you managed to get your hands on this, " Patel remarked, sliding the manila envelope containing the manifest onto the table. "Care to explain how you managed it?"
