The Personal Diary of Lexington J. Stryker

I finished Farnsworth's report on the crystal problem today. Things are getting really out of hand. We had twenty more violent incidents last week and one death. It seems it's becoming the drug of choice. I can deal with Alcohol, but crystal scares me. If we could just pin down their production site.

Against my better judgement, I hired Ironwood to handle the Donovan murder. I don't much like the man, but he gets the job done. Farnsworth and Myerson were upset I didn't give them the case, but I've got a bad feeling about this one, especially since they found Donovan down in LAP.

Ironwood just woke me up to tell me that all of Donovan's personal files are missing. That's not supposed to happen. It's obvious we have a hacker and a sociopath on our hands. This is all getting a little too complicated for me.

I'm going to go back through the security logs and see if I can find anything.

I just got an E-invoice on my desk top from Ops telling me that Ironwood's requisitioned Donovan's old AI and is now charging it back to my cost center! A type Zeta AI no less. ONE THOUSAND credits a week!

I swear the man makes it his business to piss me off.

Unlike Farnsworth and Myerson though, he seems to have found something. It seems innocuous. A riddle. Still I have a feeling, and I always go with my feelings.

Meryson actually managed to catch a bad guy today. Evan Vilson was caught red handed selling four grams of crystal to a sixteen year old kid! They're still interrogating him. I've asked them to keep the door shut so I don't hear anything.

I got a call from the President today asking me to set up a monitor on Ellison Andrews. I guess the President's afraid Andrews might try something stupid down in Cyrogenics. I've assigned A.I. number 10G78 to monitor Andrews

My contacts in M.I. informed me that that long range blip is showing up on sensors again. I'm beginning to wonder if Standish wasn't full of shit.

Once again someone is messing with my monitors. Now they're attacking my AIs also. Some one sent in a decompling virus and scrambled two of my best. I tracked down Harry Cohen and had him start looking into it. He's the best I know.

I met with Ironwood today. I'm becoming very disturbed about this Donovan thing. It's getting much bigger than just a murdered beaurocrat. Ironwood's discovered Shadow involvement. I thought that cancer had disappeared long ago. I didn't tell him everything I know about the organization, which is damn little. I suppose I should warn him. There are going to be more murders and I don't want Ironwood to be one of them.

Dr. Wang just gave me a call to inform me that my ONLY shadow suspect is now a big red splotch on the floor. I'm calling Ironwood and Cannon down to medical. It's time to put an end to this Shadow organization... before it puts an end to us.

I can't believe it! We finally caught a break against Shadow! We found a veritable treasure trove of information in that punk Hacker's hidden cell. We haven't had time to go through it yet, but I'm sure I'm going to find some names in there and then the fun begins.

I got a phone call about Ironwood this morning. We must be getting close to these sons of bitches. Someone tried to take Ironwood out last night. I haven't had an opportunity to speak to him yet, but I guess he's alright. I still haven't gotten all of the particulars yet, but I guess they tried to cave in his skull. Hitting Ironwood in the head is probably the least effective means of getting his attention.
