Aegis, the world-order organization that operates out of the high-tech city-state of Olympus, maintains peace in the twenty-second century, and Olympian officer Deunan has lost her left eye to the seemingly endless ESWAT training exercises that are required of her. But all of her training is about to be put to the test. Radical third-world terrorists have infiltrated Olympus, and a body-armor specialist has been tapped by another terrorist organization to design bigger and better battle-suits—all of this to topple Olympus-orchestrated peace talks between Imperial Americana and the United States Soviet Socialist Republics. Can an elite squad of ESWAT officers stop the terrorists and maintain the peace? Find out in the fourth chapter of Masamune Shirow’s Appleseed.
