Remy stepped out of the Uber and thanked the driver, then looked at the
Spirit of Washington Heliport.
The heliport was not far off the ground. It didn’t need to be high to have
the required clearance, though it was in the heart of DC. The architects had
built the port on a dock that stuck out into the Potomac, so the heliport only
needed to be elevated enough to ensure that the propellers cleared the tops
of the yachts parked around it.
The noise of an approaching helo drowned out her thoughts. Her ride
whirled overhead, then landed on the pad. Remy stepped aboard.
A person she’d never seen before sat in the back, smiling unpleasantly at
her. He carried himself like a young man, though he appeared to be middleaged, with thinning hair and an aquiline nose that suggested his ancestors
had belonged to the German aristocracy.
His eyes filled with satisfaction. “Remy. I’m so glad we finally meet.”
Remy peered at him. “Who—” She stopped when she spotted another
man half-hidden behind her seat.
“It’s about time,” Bryce crowed as he threw a bag over her head.
Remy struggled, but she knew she’d lost even before she felt a needle
slide into her neck and inject a cool stream of helplessness.
Remy was unable to see or to move, and she wondered why she was still
conscious. She guessed Bryce had injected her with something like curare

led her to wonder, was this other man the Doc?
Confused, Bryce asked, “Aren’t we going to Fort Meade?”
The bald man chuckled. “That’s not where I have my laboratory.” He
looked grim. “I had a nice lab in Cuba before you allowed it to be
destroyed. Now I’ll have to take her to my primary lab.”
Bryce could not prevent horror from entering his voice. “Are you going
to do to Remy what you did to the people at Camp No?”
Aha. That confirmed that this was the Doc. She would have jerked, but
the drug prevented it.
The man chided Bryce. “I told you, once I had Remy, I could abandon
those lines of inquiry. I won’t have to torture anybody anymore.” He paused
reflectively. “Not physically, anyway.”
The drug could not prevent a cold chill from running down Remy’s
Bryce sounded relieved. “Right. Now that you’ve got Remy, you can
force her to tell you how to build a Memwriter.” His voice revealed his
worry. “Uh, won’t you have to torture her to get the Memwriter before you
can switch to Memwriter-based research?”
More chuckles foreshadowed the Doc’s next words. “If I’m right about
how the machine works, I won’t need any help from Remy. I just need her
