The Russian Interpreter - post III

Whatever story has been spun on Manning becomes largely irelevant as he finds himself in prison enjoying some of the confusion and misery inflicted by the Soviet state on millions of its own people. Did the book that was handed out by the Englishman contain a microdot or royalties for a censored Russian writer? Whatever the truth is never really established with the money being far too much to fully cover the writer and royalties explanation.

After a spell in prison Manning is whisked straight to the airport to be sent home. As he sits on the plane about to leave Proctor-Gould comes stumbling up the aisle and as he sits down next to him as they take off and Moscow dissapears below the lies, confusion and deceit starts all over again.

A review will follow soon...
