“What Pike was doing now might not be legal, but it was just. And she would do what she could to help. She looked back into the mirror, remembering the terror. Understanding what Kylie was experiencing. We’re coming. We’ll find you.”
In No Fortunate Son Pike Logan gets some difficult news on the level of “no good deed goes unpunished.” He’s concerned that the government that he has saved many times over the years has abandoned him rather than show gratitude. He doesn’t expect medals, but to be treated this way is beyond belief. At this low point a close friend and mentor seems to need his help, but Logan cannot relay on his usual resources…except for his own.
