Example text

Everyone gave the bland, aging man the small due he deserved. He left, walked some more, and entered a clothier’s, where he examined a shirt. Then it was a grocery, then an electronics superstore, then a sexy shop, as Italians call their stores for erotic assistance. Massimo enjoyed sexy shops, professionally speaking. They made people, even spies, uncomfortable, and a discomfited spy was one who made mistakes. At one or two stores he bought a bauble or two, which added a degree of realism to his errands.

Bob made a short speech to the group praising their work, then gave the floor to Leon, who talked about plans for the next few days, which included a break for everyone tomorrow, Sunday. When the speeches were done, Massimo did not linger.

Of the man in the passenger’s seat, he would later be able to say only that he was puffy-faced and very tan or dark-skinned—Arab, if he had to guess. The men who had grabbed Abu Omar were nothing but heaving arms—faceless, incorporeal, more force than human.
