Chapter 33

Wine and Nibbles and the Dawn of a New Era

  • The pre-MEDUSA party is in high swing. Nothing helps us work up an appetite like the imminent launch of a weapon of mass destruction. Pass the Pringles.
  • Valentine overhears that a gunfight has broken out in the Museum. Worried for Kate's safety, he wants to go check on her, but the Lord Mayor prohibits it.
  • Meanwhile, Tom pilots the Jenny Haniver close enough to London's upper decks that Hester can jump out.
  • Someone alerts Crome to the uninvited guests, and he orders his army of Stalkers to bring him Hester alive.
