THE MAN WHO RISKED HIS PARTNER

They starred an unlikely pair of private eyes, Mick Axbrewder and Ginny Fistoulari, and in this, the second of the paperbacks to be "expanded" and reissued as a hardcover, Mick—after mortally wounding his cop brother in a shooting accident—is struggling to stay sober while Ginny, his partner and sometime lover, is adjusting to the loss of her left hand in an act of heroism, while wrestling with bouts of self-loathing. The crotchety protagonists find that their client's story is chock full of lies, however. Among other problems, the charismatic but married Haskell is a "sexual buccaneer" with a long trail of winsome, brokenhearted bank employees in his wake. Haskell's incessant lying means an ever-changing explanation of his quandary before Gin and Brew—after a couple of near-miss assassination attempts—are finally able to get down to the real facts. Although fans of Donaldson's Thomas Covenant fantasy series should provide a ready readership base, this attempt at hard-boiled, Chandleresque gumshoeing feels a bit dated and flat.

Клушар продолжал бушевать: - И этот полицейский из вашего города тоже хорош. Заставил меня сесть на мотоцикл. Смотрите сюда! - Он попытался поднять левую руку.  - Кто теперь напишет материал для моей колонки.

Под потолком завыли сирены. - Информация уходит. - Вторжение по всем секторам.

Севильское солнце бывает безжалостным. Будьте завтра поосторожнее. - Спасибо, - сказал Беккер.  - Я сегодня улетаю.

Вспыхнувший экран был совершенно пуст.

Подходя к шифровалке, он успел заметить, что шторы кабинета шефа задернуты. Это означало, что тот находится на рабочем месте. Несмотря на субботу, в этом не было ничего необычного; Стратмор, который просил шифровальщиков отдыхать по субботам, сам работал, кажется, 365 дней в году.

В одном Чатрукьян был абсолютно уверен: если шеф узнает, что в лаборатории систем безопасности никого нет, это будет стоить молодому сотруднику места. Чатрукьян посмотрел на телефонный аппарат и подумал, не позвонить ли этому парню: в лаборатории действовало неписаное правило, по которому сотрудники должны прикрывать друг друга.

В шифровалке они считались людьми второго сорта и не очень-то ладили с местной элитой. Ни для кого не было секретом, что всем в этом многомиллиардном курятнике управляли шифровальщики.

Она попыталась высвободиться. Коммандер не отпускал. Она попробовала закричать, но голос ей не повиновался.
