How long can you walk the line before you fall off?


Character, ex-FBI agent Aya Morell, has been forced into early retirement.  Ethics seem to be a problem; she doesn’t quite have many.  Only her ex-partner Gavin Wade wants to believe in her.


Now separate, Aya heads to Arizona to work for Neuetch, a pharmaceutical conglomerate that is the victim of intellectual property theft.  Wade is sent on a mini vacation, if working for a blackmailed recluse can be called a vacation.  Fate isn’t done with Aya and Wade, what appears to be two very different problems converge into one surprise ending.


It is this ending that has kept “Whoever Fights Monsters” in my head.  I had some problems with the logic of the story’s events and questions on reasoning and non-believable actions.  However, and I really can’t say more without giving everything away, the ending has me intrigued.  I don’t believe the story could have been written in any other order, just small some areas filled in a bit more.


“Whoever Fights Monsters” has me thinking and rethinking on its characters, and that’s not unsatisfactory in any story.
