Future Alexand has some loopholes she needs to fix from an incident which happened to a past version of herself. She takes Katherine with her to Moscow, 3992, where they both are witnesses to the brutal rituals of the fledgling Amanojuko empire.
Inajda has placed a recorder inside Alexand’s contact lens and will return to Abouna Panak with the incriminating evidence implicating high up members of the world’s government, including the American President and Mongolian Vice President in the abduction, torture and murder of children. (News – The Broken Writer – I will be taking a break from 23rd June until 1st September. Next issue – Wednesday 1st September. Thank you for your patience.)
Inajda takes Alexand out onto the streets of Moscow, as the life readings of the Mongolian Vice President are registering on the tracking mechanism in her writer. They follow the signal towards a large circus pavilion pitched in Vorontsovskiy Park.
After being given immortality by Helga Ritter, Agnes Harlaut is in Moscow, and has been charged with handling the detention and interrogation of subversives acting outside the Russian wall. She has in her custody a group of Mongolian teenagers who took incriminating photographs of Amanojuko delegates.
Lord Filius Anderson watches another of his Floating Asylum ships arrive at the docks of his castle in Krestovaya by the East Siberian Sea. His agents have abducted many deviants and enemy operatives, who had been cured by Katherine’s Bullet. The National Guard have chained the captives, who are forced to wait in a line, to board the ship.
