Destination: Yellowknife

Destination Yellowknife Final

Garik Shayk is restrained at the beginning of Book 10, The Russian's Revenge.

He may not be able to fight back, but he can hear perfectly well. He latches onto one word.


Where is Yellowknife? Canada, of course, two solid days travel time from the U.S. West Coast.

Garik's first challenge is the metal restraints on his wrists and ankles. Try as he might, he hasn't been able to break free. And they are pressure sensitive, so Dr. Jimenez (and anyone he wishes to tell) knows each time Garik struggles for his freedom.

They have uncovered Garik's weaknesses, and he is locked up tighter than a drum.

The second challenge is Yellowknife. Even if he does manage to get free of his restraints, how can he get there? He needs directions, food, money, and ... oh, yes, wheels ... or wings. Those would come in very handy ... if only he knew a hybrid with wings who could help him out.

Then there's the Canadian border to cross. Without a passport ... or directions, food, money, or wheels ... it seems his chances of reaching Yellowknife are pretty slim ... that is, unless there happens to be a secret agent somewhere in the Corona Tower basement research facility ... CIA ... MI6 ... CSIS ... ASIS ... BND ... or MOSSAD. 

Garik can only keep his eyes open and hope.
