Мидж повернулась к нему на своем стуле. - Это не смешно, Чед. Заместитель директора только что солгал директорской канцелярии. Я хочу знать. Бринкерхофф уже пожалел, что не дал ей спокойно уйти домой. Телефонный разговор со Стратмором взбесил. После истории с Попрыгунчиком всякий раз, когда Мидж казалось, что происходит что-то подозрительное, она сразу же превращалась из кокетки в дьявола, и, пока не выясняла все досконально, ничто не могло ее остановить.

 Хоть что-нибудь, - настаивал Беккер. - Немец называл эту женщину… Беккер слегка потряс Клушара за плечи, стараясь не дать ему провалиться в забытье. Глаза канадца на мгновение блеснули. - Ее зовут… Не отключайся, дружище… - Роса… - Глаза Клушара снова закрылись.

Не успел он приняться за чтение отчета службы безопасности, как его мысли были прерваны шумом голосов из соседней комнаты. Бринкерхофф отложил бумагу и подошел к двери. В приемной было темно, свет проникал только сквозь приоткрытую дверь кабинета Мидж.

Моя любовь без воска. Это было его местью. Она посвятила Дэвида в некоторые секреты криптографии и, желая держать его в состоянии полной готовности к неожиданностям, посылала ему записки, зашифрованные не слишком сложным образом. Список необходимых покупок, любовные признания - все приходило к нему в зашифрованном виде.

 - Извините за беспокойство.

Нуматака удовлетворенно мотнул головой. Хорошая новость. Звонок из Соединенных Штатов. Он улыбнулся.

Он немедленно включил монитор и повернулся к графику дежурств на стене. - Чья смена? - громко спросил он, пробегая глазами список. Согласно расписанию, в полночь должен был заступить на двойную смену новый сотрудник по имени Зейденберг. Чатрукьян еще раз обвел глазами пустую лабораторию и нахмурился.  - Где же он, черт возьми.

 Да, сэр. Шестнадцать часов. Но это не все, сэр.
