For that reason, James Mowry’s first outing from his new abode was to Radine, a town forty-two miles south of Pertane: population three hundred thousand, hydroelectric power, bauxite mines, aluminum extraction plants. He caught an early morning train. It was overcrowded with people compelled to move around by the various needs of war: sullen workers, bored soldiers, self-satisfied officials, colourless nonentities. The seat facing him was occupied by a heavy-bellied character with bloated, porcine features, a caricaturist’s idea of the Jaimec Minister of Food.

The risk was not enormous – in fact, it was small – but it was still there. And when tried, sentenced, and waiting for death, it is no consolation to know that what came off was a hundredto-one chance. If Mowry was to maintain the one-man battle, the enemy had to be outwitted all along the line, all the time. Satisfied that by now the most persistent of snoops could not follow his tortuous trail through the city, Mowry retrieved his case, carried it up to the third floor of a ramshackle tenement building, and let himself into his suite of two sour-smelling rooms.

He’d better make sure out on the open street where, if it came to the worst, he could throw away his case – along with his bandy-legged gait – and run like the devil. So he ambled casually past the hotel and explored nearby streets until he found a policeman. Glancing swiftly around, he marked his getaway route and went up to the officer. ’ He said it stupidly, putting on a somewhat moronic expression. ’ Mowry fumbled in a pocket, produced his identity card and offered it for inspection. His leg muscles were tensed in readiness for swift and effective flight as he went on.
