لاتاری، چخوف و داستانهای دیگر

Мысли Сьюзан прервал громкий звук открываемой стеклянной двери. Она оглянулась и застонала. У входа стоял криптограф Грег Хейл. Это был высокий мужчина крепкого сложения с густыми светлыми волосами и глубокой ямкой на подбородке. Он отличался громким голосом и безвкусно-крикливой манерой одеваться. Коллеги-криптографы прозвали его Галит - таково научное название каменной соли.

Затем подошла еще одна группа, и жертва окончательно исчезла из поля зрения Халохота. Кипя от злости, тот нырнул в стремительно уплотняющуюся толпу. Он должен настичь Дэвида Беккера. Халохот отчаянно пытался протиснуться к концу улочки, но внезапно почувствовал, что тонет в этом море человеческих тел. Со всех сторон его окружали мужчины в пиджаках и галстуках и женщины в черных платьях и кружевных накидках на опущенных головах.

 Может быть, все-таки скажете что-нибудь. Что помогло бы мне? - сказал Беккер. Росио покачала головой: - Это. Но вам ее не найти. Севилья - город большой и очень обманчивый. - Я постараюсь.

 Я знаю.  - Он улыбнулся.  - Но на этот раз, - он вытянул левую руку так, чтобы она попала в камеру, и показал золотой ободок на безымянном пальце, - на этот раз у меня есть кольцо. ГЛАВА 116 - Читайте, мистер Беккер! - скомандовал Фонтейн.

 - Так вы говорите на языке цивилизованного мира. - Да вроде бы, - смущенно проговорил Беккер. - Это не так важно, - горделиво заявил Клушар.  - Мою колонку перепечатывают в Соединенных Штатах, у меня отличный английский. - Мне говорили, - улыбнулся Беккер.

 У нас чрезвычайная ситуация, и мне нужен этот список. Бринкерхофф положил руки ей на плечи. - Мидж, ну пожалуйста, успокойся. Ты знаешь, что я не могу… Она фыркнула и снова повернулась к клавиатуре. - Я распечатаю список.

 Пожалуйста, уделите мне одну минуту. Беккер отлично говорил по-французски, тем не менее обратился к этому человеку на языке, который тот, как он надеялся, должен был знать хуже.
