Duke, this is the report on your run to Gananoque to recover the stolen cyberware components. Elaine Anderson is the S-K outside asset handler(AKA Fixer) that contacted me for the run.

As per your request, I've recovered the components stolen from our vessel in the Thousand Islands. You've already received my report on our intelligence gathering to find where the items were held, as well as our capture of Fred Winters, the person responsible for leaking details of the shipment to the Toronto Mafia.
After learning these details, I contacted Dr. Berlin and asked him to provide us with Shadowrunners to reclaim the items in question. He contacted a runner team headed by a self styled journalist named The Duke. I had one of our "Mr. Johnsons" make an offer to The Duke, and secured his services.
Duke stopped in our Kingston holding facility to interrogate Mr. Winters. What he found was that Winters was extorted to provide the shipping data in order to make good on gambling debts. What Duke and team were able to get was the description of a troll shadowrunner that worked for a shadowrunner team based out of Quebec City. Duke's team followed the leads to a warehouse and storage facility 12 km. ENE of Gananoque. The opposing runners were led by a stealth operative named Smiley. Smiley's team put up substantial resistance but were ultimately brought down because of their lack of magical support. Duke's team then secured the shipment and returned it to Toronto.
In conclusion, I originally resisted the idea of hiring The Duke, due to his erratic personality and chemical dependency issues. I changed my mind based on Dr. Berlin's recommendation, and on the report of Dr. Kellner upon recovery of her zoo specimens. Duke and his team are viable shadow assets, and I do not hesitate to recommend them for future missions. I've also forwarded this report to our office in Quebec City to recommend they make use of Smiley once he hires competent magical support, since Duke and team engaged them with nonlethal force.
I await your feedback on the subject
