Vic Sage stands at the scene of a bridge collapse. While the cops do nothing, Vic futility risks his life to save a boy on the edge. In spite of his efforts and receiving help from a stranger, the boy dies.
Myra Connelly Fermin tries to fire the bureaucrat that ignored the report warning that the bridge was unsafe, but Union rules protect the man.
Vic Sage reports on a series of murders -- the last victim was a Hub City Army recruiter. At a demonstration of hand-to-hand combat by a U.S. military team that Vic covers for KBEL, four black clad men kill the seven soldiers in front of thousands of spectators. Vic tries to stop them from escaping but he misses his grip on their escape helicopter.
Later he makes a connection between the attackers' leader and the man who helped him earlier. With a name from the man's coat, Vic tracks down Col. DeBeck.
As the Question, he easily defeats DeBeck's soldier Billy, but finds himself overwhelmed by the rest of DeBeck's men.
When Vic wakes up, he's buried up to his neck in dirt. De Beck promises to kill him.
A more complete summary coming soon!
