Acts of the Assassins.pdf
Gallio does counter-insurgency. But his career is threatened by the theft of a body and a conspiracy of silence. Bizarre rumours of the walking dead are swirling, there is panic in the air, and it's his job to find the body and straighten things out. But he blows the case, no body is found and Gallio is reassigned. Suddenly, years later, there's another body and the case is reopened. Gallio is called back by headquarters and ordered to track down everyone who had been involved. The only problem is that they keep dying, in more grotesque and violent ways, and the conspiracy keeps growing. How can Gallio hope to keep ahead of the game when the game keeps changing? Acts of the Assassins is about one man's struggle to control forces beyond his understanding and what a lonely place a very dangerous world can be.
