J. Rutherford Pierce smiled as the six mercenaries filed into his London office. Each one had been handpicked. The best of the best. Hardened soldiers who moved through their lives free of the fears and uncertainties of lesser men. And yet right now, each and every one of them was terrified. Pierce savored it. Some people liked wine. Some people liked fine food. Pierce liked fear. Once the mercenaries were seated, Pierce pressed a button beneath his vast desk and the double doors behind them slammed shut. “Sir,” their leader began. “We —” “Candy?” Pierce pushed a large crystal bowl toward the edge of his desk. It was full to the top with small red, white, and blue spheres. Americandy. His newest creation and currently the fastest-selling sweet in the United States. The men looked back at him, uncertain, off balance, just as he wanted. Pierce smiled as he plucked out a red one and devoured it. “The red is my favorite,” he said. “Cherry pie. The blue is blueberry pie and the white is apple pie. Had to fudge the color on that one a bit, of course. Go on.” He pushed the bowl forward again and each man took one. Of course they did. The world was a symphony and Pierce was a conductor. Pierce opened their action report. “Why Turkey?” he asked. “Sir, the guides they hired indicated that the children were looking for leopards.” “Anatolian leopards,” Pierce corrected. “Y-yes, sir,” the mercenary stammered. “Anatolian leopards. Which are extinct.” “And where are they headed now?” “They’re taking a private plane, sir, but we were able to access their flight plans. Rome first and then Tunis, Tunisia.” “Why?” “We, uh, we don’t know, sir.” Pierce turned the page to a simple black-and-white map. Turkey and then Tunisia. Turkey was the site of ancient Troy while Tunis was once Carthage, one of the greatest empires the world had ever known. Coincidence? Pierce thought not. But what did it mean? Extinct animals. Vanished empires. What are they after?
