A FEW GOOD MEN

ROB JENNE

SALLY SCHILLING
She was tough as any man — and far meaner than most.

JOACHIM STEUBEN

COLONEL ALOIS HAMMER
He made the Slammers what they were the meanest, toughest bunch of mercenaries who ever killed for a dollar, or wrecked a world for pay. No one could stand against them.
