He’d trusted Sir Alistair Wilson; thought him a good bloke, like the Director who had preceded Cuthbertson. Charlie stirred, aware of the metallic sound getting nearer. At least he’d lived: perhaps Wilson considered the bargain ended there. He’d only pleaded for that, after all, Charlie conceded; just his life.
