Chapter 1: The setup
Benjamin Scott entered the foyer of the .45cal headquarters downtown. Jericho, the enigmatic but brilliant man who ran the company had asked to see him. Generally, Ben tried to accommodate Jericho whenever possible. The man did, after all, write his paycheck.
Exchanging pleasantries with the receptionist, Benjamin made his way to the second level of the basement where Jericho kept his office. Somehow the windowless, bomb-shelter quality of the basement suited Jericho’s personality. Some said it reminded him of his time in the war.
