For Vicki, as they all are.
Women of Power

Night-time in Chicago;
Just south of O’Hare, off Franklin;
The two black Ford Expeditions sat side by side in the darkness on the broad expanse of concrete. The chemical plant had been closed for years now, and this huge cement bowl that had once been a settling pool had been empty, except for a thin layer of probably carcinogeous chemicals, for just as long. It was the perfect place for the meeting. Badi looked out of his window. He could see the headlights from the silver panel van approaching. He gave Mudar, in the other SUV a wave then turned back to Fariq and found him punching numbers into his cell phone.
“What are you doing?”
“Dancing with the Supers was on last night. I’m voting for Airstream.”
“Put that away, you idiot.”
