She nods at someone behind Wolverton.  The chair goes out from underneath him, sending him sprawling onto the floor.  His world becomes the dark, cold barrel of a revolver being pushed into his forehead; the click as the hammer of which goes back is like the Word of God.

Wolverton’s fingers close on something that was once a USB stick, pinned to his lapel.
