Officially, Ethan Galaal doesn't exist. Very few people can do what he does, and do it well. Maybe a handful in the entire world. As the DIA's most valuable undercover operative, his missions span multiple roles that blur the lines between case officer, private investigator, kidnapper, and assassin.
"A Touch of the Present"
'Vesuvius Falling. Written by Tony Lee. Things aren't going great for Bernice Summerfield. Her one time comrade-cum-adversary, Irving Braxiatel, isn't the man she knew; her long-lost teenage son, Peter, isn't exactly pleased to see her; and she's woken up with one hell of a hangover....
As the Advent season approaches, Bernice finds herself faced with the prospect of an old-fashioned family holiday, surrounded by her loved ones on a world they now call home...a time to forge new memories, together...and for a bitter enemy to claim what is rightfully hers. Life is never straightforward, however. The most haunted planet in the galaxy is requesting an archaeologist, and something very peculiar is happening at the last manned shipyard in the cosmos.
