Alopex, he knew, was relieved to have got his family here, to this extraordinary haven. No wonder the fellow was letting off a bit of steam. In the light from the doorway, he saw Alexis and his heart lurched. He hated it when Benny chewed with his mouth open. And it would muffle most of what he said, which meant that Tom had to pay even more attention to the yam-packed mouth from which the muffled words came. Tom was a great cook, and this was one of his better meals. A murderer, a terrorist, a blackmailer. But Gabriel was already greedy, and this has proved he can no longer be relied upon.

Losing blood was a million times easier for him than being inactive. And unlike Himmler, Goebbels, Göring and Ribbentrop, he seems never at any moment to have contemplated any form of negotiation with the enemy as a way of ending the war. Like the other leading Nazis, he knew he had no future after Hitler. In the armed forces, too, the scope for escaping Nazification had diminished. The repercussions of the failed bomb plot, the need to demonstrate loyalist credentials, extended deployment of NSFOs, increased surveillance and fear of falling into the clutches of Himmler (who now possessed greater room for intervention in the military sphere) left their mark on both officers and men. Whether at the front or in the civilian population, as the war had come close to home, and the popular base of the regime had shrunk, compliance with ever more invasive controls had come increasingly to dominate daily life. It had survived an internal uprising, but its armed forces had been pummelled in east and west.

I extended my limbs with each movement, knowing the pointed toe, the half twist of the wrist, and stretched fingers made the elongated and graceful lines that separated a so-so waltzer from a champion waltzer. Even without a flowing dress and an updo, I felt timeless, regal, like I was dancing at the court of some long-deposed or beheaded European king. Vitaly felt my mind drift and cut the music in midphrase, frowning slightly. What was it-two, three years ago. Peoples is not liking dancing with murderers or where murders is happened. Had he perhaps realized that both face and hand belonged to someone of his acquaintance. His owner, in fact, out on the roof eager to rescue him after searching fruitlessly for a half hour. Having at least made myself clear to the dog, I stared impotently at the window. I would have to return to the other room and pray like Samson for the blessing of brute strength in hope of shoving the bed under the window.

High-powered lasers seared across her back as she dropped towards the holographic generator, uniform and hair bursting into flames before the blazing corpse smashed down spread-eagled on the pedestal.

Closing his eyes, he heard the German cock his pistol. An earth-shattering crack jolted him as a shot rang out. From his battle blouse he pulled out some chocolate, broke it in two and offered half to Tanner. Well, actually, I got it from some Norwegian bloke in Lillehammer. Of slight build and with short, mousy hair slicked to his skull with brilliantine, he was, as Tanner had discovered, far stronger than he looked.
