    Summary

    "Inside their vehicle, the Guard settles into silence, and at first Nile is grateful for it. No one is trying to gauge how she feels when she is still in shock. No one is trying to debrief her when she can still hear the wind whistling in her ears, when she can still remember the way her skull crawled underneath her skin to piece itself back together."

    On the evening of Merrick's death, Nile must come to terms with her new reality, confront harsh truths, and make a decision about where she goes from here.

    Summary

    Oh, she’s had it. “You’re fucking with me,” Nile says. “I did die, and this is Hell, riding around Afghanistan being grilled about my past sins by some shitty Virgil.”

    “You can call me Joe.”

    “What do you and the others do, Joe?”

    “Depends on the century,” he shrugs.

    “Professional kidnappers?”

    Joe shows his teeth. “It’s very cute that you think this is professional.”

    “No, but maybe the others know what they’re doing.” A flash of irritation cracks his chummy facade. She wonders if he has any shame she can jab. Fighters and soldiers, he said. “Are you mercenaries?”

    “It’s a little more complex than that.”

    “Sure,” she says. “Whatever you need to tell yourself. How many people have you killed? Just averaged, across the centuries.”

    His mouth twists. “Maybe Hell is riding around Afghanistan being judged by a US Marine. How many people have you killed, Freeman?”

    She closes her mouth, hard. Joe doesn’t smile, but his satisfaction is palpable.

    In which Joe is the one who goes to retrieve Nile.

    Summary

    “Nicolo would never risk the fates of children over his own.”

    “And look where that got him!” Andy roars, her throat burning with a desperate rage that has nothing to do with the pills, and right there, in that precise moment, she watches, devastated, as the words carve ruin into Joe’s grief-stricken face.

    She hears the tiny intake of Booker’s breath, sees the even tinier lift of his shoulders towards his ears.
