The Quiet War, Chapter 3

It was the most important funeral to have been held in Brasília for more than twenty years. The avenues around the Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida were clogged with limousines and flitters. Drivers and security details eyed each other with professional interest. Drones wove amongst treetops. Helicopters beat wide circles under the hot blue sky. Wolves prowled the long park, Eixo Monumental, and half the city was paralysed by interlocking rings of security.

Is there any way for Americans who enjoy your work to get our hands on this book without waiting a long time or having it shipped from England? Please say yes!

I wish there was. So far, there isn't, alas, unless happen to be stocking a few illicit copies...
