ONETHEY CALLED HIM A HERO FOR DOING HIS JOB. AND IF THAT werentbad enough, damn if they werent making him talk about it.Special Agent Samuel Wellington Kincaid received a standing ovationwhen he finished his lecture. He gave a quick nod then tried to leave thepodium and the auditorium, but he was pulled back by another FBI agentwho insisted that, as soon as the cheering and clapping stopped, Samanswer questions.Knowing he should cooperate, he nodded again and waited for theaudience of cadets and future FBI agents to quiet down. Like most people,Sam hated giving speeches, especially those concerning his work inintelligence, but this was a training seminar and a goodwill mission, and hehad been ordered by his superiors to talk about his role in the dramaticcapture of the notorious Edward Chester, a radical white supremacist andone of the most elusive criminals in many years.Despite his reluctance, Sam had been scheduled to conduct five of theseseminars around the country. Hed already completed the first in D. C. , andthis one in Chicago was the second. Next week he would fly to Seattle forthe third and then on to Los Angeles. His final stop would be at the navalbase in San Diego where he would address Navy SEALtrainees. Inwardly, he groaned at the thought of three more appearances infront of inquisitive audiences who wanted only to hear sensational detailsof the capture.This particular audience, however, also wanted to hear how Sam, whilehelping out on another case, saved the life of Alec Buchanan, a localChicago FBI agent. The incident had happened six weeks ago, and sincethen, a few stories had been circulating. Agent Buchanan had been onmedical leave, so they werent able to get any facts from him.
