Sample text

He asked. "Yes," Jules said hesitantly. "We ... that is, my wife and I ... we think we overheard some people plotting against the Empire. " The man's eyes went wide. In the short time he'd been working here, the only problems SOTE had had to deal with were immigration forms, visas and routine security checks of police applicants and nominees for the still-forming local nobility. Nothing as exciting as treason had ever even been intimated on this sleepy young planet. "It certainly is," he said, unable to keep the quiver of excitement out of his voice.

The only difficulty here was that there were six police to be dealt with at the station, as opposed to three men at SOTE headquarters. The d'Alemberts could only draw three of them out to hear their story, while the rest were attending their routine chores throughout the building. The agents had to settle for those three at once, and then spread out through the station to take care of the others. The operation did not take very long; the policemen were all natives of worlds with a standard gravitational field of one gee, and as such they were no match for the stronger, faster DesPlainians.

It was impossible to tell in which direction the sound had been; it was gone again almost the same instant he heard it. But he had heard it, there was no doubt at all in his mind now. That question, at least, was settled-but it brought a new one to mind: What to do now? Should he try to go back to the elevator tube, back down to the base and the safety of his fellow pirates? If his fears about his boss were correct, though, he would only be running straight into the arms of the enemy. Should he continue on his intended path to generating station four and hope to find some sanctuary there?
