My suspicions were confirmed: they’d been building up to this for a long time and played me for the part, running me all the way, Turner, with his cold blood and his shrug that said, You could say no, knowing I wouldn’t. Seago saw my expression. “Didn’t they tell you I was going to be your controller? ” I wondered if he was telling me the truth, but I let it pass. “Seago,” I said, “go and light that cigarette outside. ” He did, and I got up, went for a pee, brushed my teeth, got dressed, did all the normal things you do when you get up, regardless of espionage, the Cold War or Archangels.

The girl who won’t turn down the mission everyone else has turned down, and you know why, old boy? ” I got off a few streets before the Bureau--habit, really--and walked the rest of the way to the squat, brown office building and went inside, and the heaters didn’t work.
