Is anyone up for a Christmas tale? Well, grab your cocoa and a sweater ... yes, it’s that time. ;)
(Oh, and THIS CHAPTER WILL BE IN TWO ENTRIES ... please jump to the next)
I’m taking us all the way back to season one, back to my Rise of the Sandworm verse, but if you haven’t read it, no worries. You should be able to jump right in.
Three months in LA was not anything John Casey hoped for when he agreed to chase down the new Intersect. It went against the usual formula – in, kill, out – and one that he never had a problem with up until now. But this time, thanks to an unforeseen twist, he’s stuck here wearing Lederhosen and serving up corndogs as a cover, while protecting the most unlikely human canister ever to be stuffed with the government’s precious secrets when he’s off the clock. And it’s a nerd, of all things.
Christmas Eve has sailed in, and things would have a tendency to get touchy-feely – if Casey let himself have a feeling. Instead, the holiday is the cue for him to do what he does best – without remorse, without sticky human emotions, and no one is going to tell him otherwise.
Well, almost no one.

Without further ado, I bring you a tale in five parts ....
