"Bertrand raised his hand and pointed to the palm. This signal indicated to Damian the beginning of a conversation to be held in SSL, Stockwell Sign Language. Often times, in the field, it became necessary to communicate silently. Facial expressions and pointing had their limitations so Stockwell had devised an effective means of communicating with hand gestures. Pointing to the palm, for example, not only signaled the start of an SSL conversation, it also meant, “look at my hand.” It was all about context."
Damian Stockwell springs back into action in this humorous tale, complete with nazis, ninjas, and mad science.
