Babylon Rising, Chapter 31
Chuck Nelson, Shari’s dumb brother, is having a heckuva time. He only has a few bucks, and really wants a beer and some chili.
Cause he’s a criminal.
When he is thrown out of a bar for trying to scam drinks off some college students, he accosts a stranger and tries to take his wallet. Then a cop accosts him. Then Talon accosts the cop.
Then Talon kills (or at least knocks out—it’s unclear) the cop, and accosts Chuck, whom he them takes under his wing to teach him the tricks of the terrorist trade.
So, how did Talon know that Michael Murphy’s research assistant’s brother was fresh out of prison and ripe for manipulation for the purpose of disgracing the small North Carolina town’s evangelical Christians and thus furthering The Seven’s plot of a one-world religion and the downfall of Christianity itself?
And how did Talon know where that brother would be hanging out?
Um. I dunno. This puzzle left as an exercise for the reader.
