Peg's mind was racing. She had no idea what was going on. Yes, she knew an assassination when she saw one – and right now, crowd control wasn't an option – and the mystery of the missing patrol vehicles suddenly seemed to make sense – but what this was afterwards… hell, no! She didn't like this, not one little bit! And with this – was it an army standing outside? She certainly didn't think the action was over just yet! How right she was.

Just then, the man wearing the regulation dark gray government suit and the piss-pot haircut, now standing behind Governor Landry, grabbed him around the neck and poked the muzzle of his side-arm into Landry's back.
