    Summary

    “Wait,” Gaby says, and pushes Illya away for a moment, getting up. “Take this off,” she says, and indicates her dress, and turns around; Napoleon unzips it smoothly, and takes it when she pushes it off her shoulders and steps out of it, all solicitous care. “Now sit.”

    Napoleon leaves the dress folded over the foot of the bed, and doesn’t say anything at all. He sits. Illya watches both of them, and Gaby thinks that she’s never seen him like this, so afraid of what he wants. “I’ve never — not with — Gaby,” Illya says, and she thinks, oh.

    Summary

    The Côte d'Azur in September isn’t as crowded as Illya had feared, though it’s still early enough in the month that Cassis is still bustling with foreign tourists, all of them drinking rosé, and all of them in this hotel bar just off the beach — sand, sun, a sea that whispers appeal rather than hypothermia — and being loud, directly at Illya.

    Summary

    “Watch his eyes,” Oleg had said to Illya, before Illya flew to Berlin. “It’s only hearsay at this point, but we know this much: it’ll be almost impossible to tell, but if you watch the eyes, you’ll know it isn’t a he at all.”

    He knows far before he ever gets a glimpse of Napoleon Solo’s eyes, however, that what he is up against—what has beaten him across the Berlin Wall with prize physicist and roboticist Udo Teller’s daughter in tow—isn’t human.
