In "Henry The Honey Badger and the Quality of Mercy", it's the end of the season of heat, and the beginning of the season of rain. And a perfect storm of problems are on the horizon. Colonel Matebe Soto has brought order to the army's weapons training and rebuilt the ranges. His first firearms class is a trial run for nine police cadets and three women members of Ghost Force. One of the police cadets has an attitude problem and Colonel Soto does not put up with attitude problems.
Narcissa Dikeledi Kajembe Dzerzhinsky de Moi has an attitude problem, too. And once again, she plans to take it out on Malinda. Kidnapping, murder, and mayhem ensue. But fear not, Henry is on the case.
Of course, this is Malinda, and while there is no shortage of violence, there is far more kindness, friendship, and romance. And Henry helps his people creature friends with matters of the heart, as well.
Henry is a remarkable honey badger. He lives in the tiny African nation of Malinda, and speaks fluent English. He studies philosophy and formal logic. He is a military hero, the first Long Range Reconnaissance Honey Badger, and a member of Ghost Force, an elite special warfare unit.
Henry has many people creature friends, and when they have problems, Henry always helps them. And they always seem to have problems. But as Henry says, "When you solve one problem, don't get lazy or another one will sneak up and bite you."
