The thought of his parents dead was absurd. “This is a trick to keep me quiet. ” No one answered. The cabin resonated with the growl of Daimler engines and the scrape of branches against camouflage netting.
The moon was less than half full, and the estate’s hunting forests stretched like a black sea across the valley. At this hour even the lights of Prague had died out to a mere inkling.

But this is just practice. ” Klopp didn’t answer, his eyes glancing up at the count. Alek pulled his hands from the saunters and swiveled the pilot’s chair around. ” The wildcount stared down at him in silence, and Alek felt suddenly very alone out here in the darkness.
