Nicely written.  The grown-ups are still running things.

Holy crap! An update! Thanks for that and damn that was cold even for the toasters to kill their own people to cover their tracks.

All part and parcel of working for telephone company from Hell. Although it's still highly wasteful, highly trained special forces don't grow on trees.

True, but this is one of those jobs where they really don't want any blowback, so it's worth the loss of the assets involved. Remember the old Russian proverb - When a man is a problem? Remember, no man, no problem.

The last part with Victor and Kat, as I read I swear I could hear low Gregorian chanting, that increased in volume until Kay made the call.

Loved it.

Good call from Kat.

All these Blakists lifting and getting away unobserved by the FedSuns forces ... sloppy, sloppy.

Consider both Blakist divisions by this point were probably running about 30-40% strength, and probably less than that in 'runners' equipment-wise? It's safe to say there wasn't that many Blakists left. Probably a couple of half-strength regiments at best.
