Weil ich es ihm gesagt habe, spricht sie nicht aus. 47 ENGLAND 48 5 Als Flints Schwangerschaft fast so weit fortgeschritten war, dass Fluggesellschaften sie nicht mehr als Passagierin akzeptieren würden, unterbrach sie ihre schonungslose Jagd nach Karl Gröber und kehrte nach England in das Haus ihres Vaters in Oxfordshire zurück, um dort die letzten Wochen bis zur Geburt ihres Sohnes zu verbringen. Um sich von ihren körperlichen Beschwerden abzulenken – Verdauungsstörungen, Kurzatmigkeit, Rückenschmerzen, geschwollene Beine – hatte sie sich auf die Geheimdienstberichte über Çarçani gestürzt.

Er hieß nicht Ben Gates, und er war kein Ornithologe, und er liebte Grace Flint nicht.  Flints Ehemann war Ridouts Spitzel, sein Maulwurf, und Ridout war sein Zuhälter. Flints Ehemann war inzwischen tot, aber in gewisser Weise lebte er weiter – als Vater ihres ungeborenen Kindes. »Das kann Aldus Cutter nicht von dir erwarten, Grace«, sagte John Flint mit tiefen Sorgenfalten im Gesicht. « Und sie stimmte ihrem Vater vehement zu, schwor, sie würde Ridout eher umbringen, als ihn um Hilfe zu bitten oder ihm irgendwas von ihrem Plan anzuvertrauen.

Als Peter das Problem meldete, hatte Gröber gleich eine Lösung parat.  »Nicht irgendwie, natürlich hatte er es erfahren, wie er immer alles erfuhr. « Keine Antwort. »Egal. Es liegt nicht weit von Berlin, nur fünfundvierzig Minuten mit dem Auto.  Wenn ich vier Fuhren täglich machte, könnte ich die Akten in weniger als einer Woche von unserer Woh‐ nung in Ostberlin nach Potsdam schaffen, meinte er. « 63 Glauben Sie sich selbst, Flint, hatten die Ausbilder an der Akademie ihr eingeschärft.  Wenn Ihnen das nämlich nicht gelingt, wenn Sie nicht die Angst oder den Schmerz oder die Freude spüren, oder was auch immer Sie der Zielperson verkaufen wollen, wenn Sie nicht daran glauben, dass es wirklich passiert ist, dann glaubt es die Zielperson auch nicht.
