Trouble in Paradise--Print
Brody Halliday is looking for a direction—recently retired from combat service, with a good hundred years of lifespan and full pension to look forward to—when he agrees to interview with the Pacific Intercoastal City Search and Rescue operation. He’s not sure it’s a job he wants, but it doesn’t hurt to do the interview. He’s even less sure about the job when one of the docking bays below the water explodes and he’s the only one with proper credentials to go check out the lone life sign that needs a rescue.
The woman he finds in the temporary lock is hallucinating some version of Jane Austen and calling him Mr. Darcy, which is not a response he’s ever had before. When he gets her to medical and there’s no record of her in the system—not a thing that should be possible—he decides maybe he should stick around and see where this rabbit hole goes.
Libby Wade is either in trouble, she is trouble, or both and he’s never left a job half done.
